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
So why are the BMA etc backing this in the new contract, reinventing the wheel is not always best look at PCG,PCT,CCG and now all the rest, no improvement one over the other
Deaf ears I fear
I think QQF improved the care patients received much more than CQC ever did. patients couldn't care about CQC ratings they just want to be seen and treated as quickly and safely as possible
Have heard this all before and every year more and more administration comes our way, it has never been cut and we always end up doing more for less. Must be time to jump ship soon
Do we never learn that big is not always better, when business over expands they often fail. Just look at the high street chains that have got too big too quickly. I think ill sit this one out
I certainly remember going to medical school to train to speak to people on the telephone and via videos examine them to make a good diagnosis. Might as well train others to do that job. What was it we used to say if you don't examine patients you make mistakes but not in such good language !
Actually I think influence is the wrong word as whatever any GP etc says the government do exactly what they want to do !
I have never seen gaba work well for pain and have always tried to put patients off using it but pain clinics keep prescribing it !
Do we all get a new iphone x for free than !
Unfortunately worldwide medicine has been devalued by patients and successive governments. This has led to relatively average income for what used to be a well paid job. This makes for poor outcomes for all the training that doctors need to go through before they start earning a good living. Unsurprisingly they will go where they are valued more and don't have to kill themselves to make that living that they expected .
This I assume means we get 1% as already had 1% in April ?
econsult needs to be a replacement rather than an addition to our services eg stop telephone consults and use econsult and we will phone patient if need be, it needs to only be available in practice opening hours otherwise after a weekend or night it will swamp us.
maybe CQC should speak Chinese on their next visit , they certainly spoke a language I couldn't understand when they visited us recently
