Yet again I say I did not go to medical school to talk on the phone or Skype or app or whatever. I went so I could be a doctor and take a history and examine patients and make a diagnosis and determine an outcome for people that were really ill and needed medical care.
Oh well they can see a pharmacist or paramedic or social prescriber inbetween. Yet again the politicians miss the point it is a MANPOWER issue.
Yet again we are the poor relations getting a fraction of what secondary care get . Wish someone would put this in the headlines ! Why would anyone in their right mind become a GP now
Wish Boris would get rid of CQC etc. We all agree regulation and standards are needed but to the level now is affecting patient care in a negative way rather than positive
yet again more access more use and then half will be told to see GP yet again increasing the burden on GPs When will they realise increasing access increases workload !
we have over 700 new houses in our area and not a penny from CIL etc, council say it is not there problem. NHS England haven't intervened at all. So looking forward to getting out of this mess.
would it not be better to invest the money used on this for MANPOWER which if there was enough of would stoip half the complaints !Not rocket science
Same issue for GPSI work, MDU and nhs resolutions had no idea
when will they wake up to the fact that this is pure and simple a manpower issue, everything else they do just increases patient access and creates even more work !
What I find is it is amazing that no one seems to listen to the predictions and do something about it. Then when we have all gone in a few years people will blame us again as they do now for everything. Personally I cant wait the joy has gone out of medicine as a career.
On a slippery slope at the moment luckily retirement is not far away. I feel sorry for the next generation of doctors regulation and being controlled is getting ridiculous and therefore the joy of medicine is being eroded at an accelerated pace by successive politicians' and their whims
Amazing so when I am retired I will be able to see my GP for 15 minutes or probably just a hologram of one !
Oh Dear retirement retirement looking more rosy every day
Personally I have never understood how there can be a pay gap other than due to working hours and roles. We have never paid female partners any different. The data is just manipulated to show things that are not real I suspect. All doctors should be paid the same irrespective of gender as a doctor is a doctor it is just some of us worker longer hours than others
Interesting isn't it that at the LMC/BMA meeting last week we were told we would get £6 per patient abatement for this so that GPs already with a full pension would not lose out . Seems they have changed there minds again.
The GMC and CQC are manipulative in their handling of Doctors and why oh why are we the ones who pay for their existence !No one gets upset by complaints regarding negligence which has harmed a patient but the daily poisoning of the public against the medical profession causes much more harm than good. And chases us to an early retirement.
Unfortunately don't know anyone in their 50s who wouldn't retire if they could. Amazing how the politicians don't connect with this other than dumping more work on us. retire tomorrow would if I could should be the buzz word on the front of the tabloids.
We just say No very easy actually
Why not put them in lawyers offices now that would be a novel idea !
Even more interesting will be in five years when 35% of us are retiring and handing back the contracts to NHS England if need be
