He was a great person. One that I truly enjoyed working with.
Far too young. Shocking news
Yusuf Patel was I think the best person I worked with in my long career.
Was so saddened to read this news
I left general practice 2 months ago ( right time it seems).
I would help and actually would want to help.
However the regulators and lawyers are vindictive and unfair.
So I won’t
I work in a poorer area than you
The RCGP are at best irrelevant, at worst malevolent.
Well I never thought that. I was sure persistent hoarseness and sore throat meant suspect a rectal prolapse.
Thanks for the groundbreaking research
Harry Potter is not actually real, a bit like any other reasons for coming to the UK to work in a system that specialises in individual doctor blame ,work increases and pay cuts.
Really from my point of view this is ok.
There’s enough self delusion and incompetence in the plan to keep me happy. So a few enthusiasts want to squander the goodwill of the few remaining doctors by enforcing more pointless dogma. So what.
I don’t think any medical staff will be about to undercut my rates in the few years I’ve got left.
I was listening to our health secretary on radio 4 yesterday. he'd decided to do the interview remotely and was discussing this via either a computer or a phone link.
it kept cutting out and in the end the interview was terminated because of this.
says it all really....
1) Have the originators of this scheme thought that by forcing young people into appointments they may displace older people with serious pathology.? Have they thought they may actually do population harm ( despite NHSE myth GP appointments are unlimited and free there is very very limited capacity)
2) even if I was paid for this extra contractual work I would not be getting involved with 14 yr olds ECGs. ( as someone who has studied ECGs extensively). Were the MDOs consulted
Well meaning amateurs are doing so much harm with this sort of thing.
You always fought for what was right and fair.
true nut you forgot one thing.
as the supply goes down the cost goes up.
im glad im not a partner any more
I’m confused. Do you bring the NHS fairy on at the end of conference to wish for all this ?
Because it can’t just be all hot air that’s ignored can it?
The state has made life easier for parasitic and destructive ambulance chasers and harder for those few people left providing the service.
Perhaps that’s why ambulance chasers outnumber available GPs In this area
Brexit may indeed damage the NHS.
however this Is insignificant compared to the damage done by the RCGP with its political posturing and its many years of toadying to a government intent on destruction of primary care.
the RCGP does not represent GPs, certainly not me. yet now it now seems to want to represent the whole UK electorate.
just stop paying the fees all you out there
interesting point "steve"
but who are you actually going to invest in?
many many of my local colleagues have left early after being brutalised by your organisation and there are no replacements.
locums will cost 2-3 times the people you destroyed and do less as goodwill has been completely lost.
I’d always had doubts about working for Internet consultation companies, what with the whole not being able to examine the patient and having to guess what’s wrong with them scenario.
Now the RCGP are opposite I realise I must be wrong and GP at hand will get my application tomorrow.
Yes , hate to say but I don’t think this is as stupid as it looks. It’s just manipulative. The reaction would be obvious. I’d ignore tbh
well im 50 and approaching retirement not 55
in an area of no recruitment. ex partner.
the RCGP must join the roll call of shame with unfair regulators and parasite lawyers which have helped my decision not to go beyond 55
BTW im a coastal Essex GP (not a partner any more )
the trouble is it just dosent help. all power to you with your institution, no denigration from me.
but there are no doctors now,those thatare here are getting tired of dodging the bullets of our toxic blame and litigation culture for dwindling income. im retiring at 55
there wont be any general practice in a few years, much has disappeared already
