Hyperinflation by 2025
There are lots of interventions that would increase vaccination rates, but big gov prefers compulsion to adequate funding for public health and prevention.
I think cmht should not discharge patients they have started on z drugs until they have stopped taking them.
What service is ‘best placed’ to deal with issues around medications, supply of medications and prescriptions? I can’t recall the name - ph, ph, pharm... or something like that?
I am astonished that a meaningless, centrally conceived and imposed administrative task has not transformed patient outcomes!
No patient needs to pay more than £10 a month if they buy a prepayment card. It is infuriating that politicians, the press, patient groups, NHS commissioners and even the BMA don’t publicise this more.
For some doctors in will be the quickest route to complete training and emigrate for better quality of life, schools etc so these places may be used!
If all my patients had trivia my surgeries would not overrun, even when I’m booked at 15 min intervals.
People who write this have no idea of the complexity of a typical deprived uk population, and how disempowered they are (by secondary care, social care, community services, employers, benefits agencies) to manage any aspect of their care without going via the gp for referrals and letters.
They’ll never pay it out anyway as one of it is backed by investments.
Actually there is an opportunity here for self employed GPs - you could hedge government pension risk by splitting contributions between nhs and sipp pensions.
Is earnings a synonym for profit in this case for partners?
I think only named clinicians should be able to reject a GP referral.
Unless your plan is to allow a worse cheaper service for the masses which, given the triple legal/regulatory jeopardy doctors face, is only possible by using new staff and judging them by their own training and peers, rather than by what they are replacing!
Crikey! The evidence suggests that GP triage deals with a 1/3 of calls but doesn’t help overall workload,
What mystical skills do these pharmacy genies have that they can confidently deal with punters on the phone?
Or are they ignorant of their unknowns, sowing the seeds for a future disaster?
The ongoing monitoring is the massive risk.
7 months to get my pension estimate and still waiting..
I want to leave the nhs scheme but I’ve been chasing a statement for 7 months and now I’ve been told I have to wait until end of August!
Timing of appointments or telephone systems are not the problem - capacity in a communist funding system is.
It is particularly nihilistic to work a job where the aim is to stop people from coming to see you!
In the rest of society, outside of Venezuela, North Korea, and Cuba, resources are allocated by the dynamic interface of ‘supply’ and ‘demand’. In the absence of a price mechanism for the customer and supplier, time (waiting times or lack of appointments) are used, ensuring no extra resources can be brought in unless the wise daddy government extends its benign gifts of fresh minted money from its central command bunkers.
Somewhere in NHSE someone is patting him/herself on the back about being brave enough to inform those ignorant GPs of the ‘burning platform’ driving ‘change’. This afternoon they will spend 2 hours putting this onto a PowerPoint slide.
Real docs for the rich, robots and a few named blame sinks for the poor.
Swedish primary care funding model would resolve inverse care provision of primary care in the UK.
Fine to miss 15/100 cancers, infections etc then as long as we refer to twr clinic on a 3% threshold!
