In the current environment you’d be crazy to become a partner, either that or you’d have to be incredibly naive or ill informed. I say that as an ex-partner. The slight reduction in income as a sessional is more than compensated for by complete flexibility around when and where to work, holidays, lack of paperwork, lack of staff or premises or business to run, and ultimately just doing the job we actually trained to do. Continuity and sense of involvement is actually good as most locums gather a handful of practices that give the bulk of the work. To say it’s liberating would be an understatement.
Who cares ?
Equally, if you breathe in and out repeatedly your day goes better
So that reasonable fee would cover all legal costs for when patient goes on a killing spree after being signed fit to hold a firearm. Great.
checks date....no not April 1
Stephanie couldnt get her anti-inflammatory appointment.
have i died ?
Sounds like Theresa May suggested this
I also disagree- think youre reading this one wrong old chap ! In some parts of NI we have a phlebotomy LES whereby the Urology Consultant send the actual blood forms direct to patient at their own predetermined intervals for follow up and results go straight back to Consultant therefore who actions them. Much more sensible, and recognises not only medicolegal risk but money used up in GP / Nurse / phlebotomy equipment.
Just when you thought RCGP couldn’t get any worse they plumb new found depths . Are they desperate to feign relevance ?
This genuinely feels like the beginning of the actual end of the NHS. The bit where Jack and Rose climb over the railings at the end of the ship before it’s final descent. Not to overdramatise or anything.
Sadly a lot of partners feel trapped in small practices partner- owned in NI.
Their demise not only fits with the larger agenda, but in fact it’s dependent upon it.
Most partners seem to allow the daily distraction of working until exhaustion prevent them from accepting that they’re slowly grinding to a halt. Leave now , it is not going to improve. Waken up.
Hence why I left partnership in NI earlier this year, first out of the plane, and doing fine ! Some GPs still cling to notion of making a difference and naively that things will change . Wise up !
when there's none left none can close.
= no GPs in about 3 years then.
Having left partnership at age 44, yes 44 , and gone to locuming I can honestly say have never been happier, control over workload, pay equivalence, everyone happy to see you, QOL UP !
I imagine that headline could have been ‘50’ and still true
I can’t even understand the first division question, what hope ?
Try again - clearly its me, I have a thank you card and all. Does it matter I don't work in L'Angleterre ?

Alexa, are you trapped in an abusive relationship not of your choosing ?
