Babylon will be the AOL of techno-shift. The third iteration will be in control in 10 years.
"....disrupt the system to the point of destruction"- like it or not that is the whole point of Babylon.
its not a case of finger in the dyke rather,
Apres moi, le deluge
or Apres Nous le deluge as the Dambusters so winningly put it.
Anonymous London - of course we still agree to "free speech right" and you have revealed yourself to be a bunch of asterisks.
"No Platforming" is one of the most insidious modern threats. The RCGP shouldn't back down to this virtue signalling.
Free Speech rules and GP Survival have revealed themselves to have a very very nasty intolerant streak.
The way to deal with people you don't agree with is to debate with them not to ban them.
"Just the place for a Snark!" the Bellman cried,
As he landed his crew with care;
Supporting each man on the top of the tide
By a finger entwined in his hair.
"Just the place for a Snark! I have said it twice:
That alone should encourage the crew.
Just the place for a Snark! I have said it thrice:
What I tell you three times is true."
Go to this page of the report:
An absolute scandal.
And compared to what’s coming 25% is cheap.
This issue could be sorted out overnight if there was a real political understanding of the engulfing problems on the way and a consequent will. There are two solutions- income and autonomy. A 25% pay rise and abolition of the cqc. Stopping usually penny pinching interference from ccgs and blocking incessant gmc meddling.
Clare Gerarda’s idea of salaried service would be better than the current worst of both worlds but wouldn’t be as good as the long-standing successful role of a well funded truly independent independent contractor status.
Depressing how many really moronic comments including a deranged conspiracy theory are posted here.
The RCGP may not be perfect but it’s heart is very much in the right place.
The RCGP provides excellent online educational opportunities as well as very useful feedback on performance in the csa and akt. It also gives very good guidance on work place based assessment. Making active membership compulsory may be a step too far but you have got to wonder at a trainer who doesn’t want to avail themselves of all this support.
There is no reason why Babylon needs to rely on young UK GPs working out of their back bedrooms in the evenings to supplement their meagre income.
They will eventually be in touch with North Korea who will do it at a tenth of the cost. Coupled with the Star Trek diagnostic device (which believe me is coming) we will look like barrel makers or fine photographers- expensive and unnecessary.
It's just the Disruption part of Disruption Technology. Entirely predictable and will be solved.
Am I being stupid but can't you just withdraw from the pension scheme and carry on working? You don't have to draw it and you don't have to add to it. The government intention is that nobody has a greater than circa £50k pension.
It was lovely in 1985
At least NHS England are being honest and straightforward. HEE would earn at least a modicum of respect if they could could forgo their nauseating obsession with news management.
Well done Dr Kanani.
Pisspoor statement is a pisspoor statement .
Well well well. The GMC finally and very belatedly realising it’s previous grotesque errors of judgement.
But have those whose lives were so upset received apologies? Have people resigned?
This organisation still has a long way to go to deservedly receive the trust of the profession but this has to be grudgingly accepted as a first faltering step.
More record tractor nonsense from the news managing HEE.
Anyway its not how much sausage meat you force into the machine its how many that end up on the plate that counts.
Interestingly taking my dog to the vets this morning apparently it is more or less impossible to find young vets who want to work. They all disappear after vet school and he is having to work beyond retirement and pay very high locum fees.
As my father used to say - your generation "needs a good war"- more true now than ever.
Eventually it will dawn on people that you need to spend a penny to save a pound. Until that crashingly obvious insight gets through Wales will continue to lurch from crisis to crisis.
I'd quite like to keep my dog with me while I consult. Maybe under the desk though he is quite large.
