Thank you Pete - I did see a lot of tweets from the conference and many made me cringe - maybe I'm just getting too old, but can you imagine any other Royal College make such fools of themsleves?
Does anyone else just feel like packing up and leaving?
10:54am - I think the BBC report was actually on their review of the papers - so we can blame the Wail yet again
Sceptic Monkey - that was exactly what I was going to say. Was another GP bashing report. Can't see anything on BBC webpage
Malling were meant to be mainly a walk in centre but grew to 8000 GMS practice and were not providing a proper WI facility. Of the patients they did see 40% were their own patients so in effect they were being paid twice!
Having said that there are still 8000 worried patients looking for a new practice to join.
that is a very offensive post - I'm surprised the mods haven't either taken it down or moderated it. Would you like to apologise to Alan who is only giving us his opinion?
Also I have to say most of your post makes no sense at all.
So I'll just Skype my surgery from my OOHs triage session will I?
Ivan thanks for clarification - perhaps you need to speak to Sofia who wrote the piece
But this isn't a 8 'til 8 scheme is it? The weekday opening is no different from the rest of us and the weekend now just 2 hours on each day because of lack of demand - and this in metropolitan area. So would appear the PM's promise of 7/7 8 'til 8 may be completely unnecessary (even if we could staff it) - who'd have thought?
