Doubtful any significant changes will occur as with all the change promised by society in general when in fear of corona. That fear has now dissipated and we are starting to see normal human behaviour again everywhere.
Well done Clare at least someone on our side, I suspect however they wont listen to you or others, of course what we should all do is refuse and have the backing of our unions but this wont happen just like everyone signed up to PCNs even knowing they would create more work for less payment.
Good luck to them, surprisingly our patients still have to be offered the same services by the PCN but at least we don't have to do extra work for little or nothing
Shouldn't have signed up to the PCN only themselves to blame for that
What is interesting is that even though our LMC advised against signing we were the only practice not to sign up in our CCG and thank goodness we didn't as even more pain in the future I am sure
NHSE obviously don't have enough work to do to come up with silly ideas like this, our patients are our patients and we look after them , we do not need quangos telling us how to do this.You can tell from this that after COVID we will be back where we were if not worse with admin etc
People are joining as they are scared of not being able to change things isn't that what people did when war crimes etc are committed. Actually change is brought by us not signing to something that creates more work for no benefit to us.
Well said Peter very eloquently put
We as individual practices will decide when it is safe for us and our staff to open the doors more than we do now. We shut our doors before NHS England advised it and hence have had lower staff illness and hopefully less COVID in our community.Big brother at the moment is not needed to tell us what we know as intelligent people we should be doing. Listening to the weekly webinar for primary care gives us no confidence that NHSE actually know any more than any of us .
Must say none of the NHSE speak has made me want to prolong my retirement date.When this is over we will still face CQC,NHSE dictat and more and more regulation not a lot will change and certainly the funding for primary care and our wonderful DNs etc doing such hard work during COVID
What about full time GP partners !!!! Just because we have had to stop pension contributions because of government tax liabilities.
The death in service anomaly for those of us opted out as we have full pension pots and need to stop to avoid the tax consequences before retirement means we are penalised yet again. BMA/GPC etc should be doing more to get this sorted before it is too late although is for some already.Death in service should be applicable for all NHS staff whilst working whether in pension or not .
What a suprise, we have been doing this for the last 2 weeks !Therefore running out of PPE
We will be running out soon and will then stop seeing all patients as we have to assume all patietns have COVID
lets hope that after this is all over the bureaucracy does not return to its previous level!
the stuff we have does not protect against COVID and certainly will not be doing any home visits until we get proper PPE
More importantly get the police and military on the streets and stop all these apparently intelligent people from ignoring advice re self isolation and social distancing. We know who they will blame when the s! really hits the fan !
So far I think NHS doing a good job but home visiting for GPs really the last thing we should be doing if they want there to be an NHS after Armageddon !
Well said Berkshire LMC at least someone is standing up for us and telling the truth about what is going on. please for the sake of us all vote to reject the DES
morale is low but generally because of continuous change and no stability. Workload has increased exponentially but it is up to us as a profession to say NO when applicable. the BMA,GPC etc do not seem to stand their ground against changes and increased administration . medicine is a wonderful profession but has been turned into a paper pushing protocol driven job and this means the future doctors will not have the lateral thinking and enjoyment from medicine that we older doctors had earlier in our careers.
