It is hard to prevent the deaths when part of their thrill is to skirt close to it for their highs.
It is already a problem now. Where are the medicines?
Wow, I never knew that either. Perhaps it is because the person in post has never done anything for Primary Care.
Only payment per service leads to results. The block contract sucks.
In saving money for the stool, how much of your precious BP and time has it cost? Of course that is not counted as we are deemed free. Block contract sucks.
The NHS gives a bad service. It is not world class and certainly not giving service users (the patients) the choice or speed of service as it is rationalised healthcare. Patients and doctors are restricted by the NHS. You cannot use your medical or surgical skills to the full potential due to this. Lots of aspiring doctors eventually give up or go abroad.
Cover your backs! We are not medically trained and we DO NOT WANT THE RESPONSIBILITIES. "See your GP", "go to A+E". Do everything except solve the problem.
All because GPs have to pay to work, so they stopped working and used the time to answer 100 pages of complaint letters that patients wrote. It will get worse. More rules, more complaints, less patients are seen as there is only 24h in a day.
Nobody will be dumb enough to pay to work. All the goodwill is gone due to the abuse NHS staff has received from all angles. The waiting list can rise due to the dumb policies.
I know what it will say. It usually ends with the usual:"See your GP."
Risks: Camera and screen colour variability, other skin lesion, distribution, history and the time it takes. More forms to fill.
I doubt is is any quicker than a face to face and adds a lot of risks for lawyers to exploit. Might be a compromise for Isle of Wright but it is not useful for most GPs.
Great. More work. Just what we need. I doubt 10 min is sufficient and where is the guidance and training?
One word. Fantasy. Boris promised a lot. Tax cuts and spending sprees. I doubt he can deliver on all the promises especially if the economy tanks.
Maybe due to nobody want to pay to work?
Thanks Pulse for confirming it! The complicated smoke and mirrors again!
They count the locum as working ALL 7 days of the week and make the GP pay to work. "Annualised" "Tapering" "Removing tax relief", "Penalised on pension growth that nobody knows until 2 years later" "Taxing and giving a fine on the unknown pension growth if you do guessed it wrong" etc. All work to confuse people and just look at you bank account after tax you will realise it is not worth it. There is an article in GP online about how doctors get poorer by working as the money they earn after tax is not sufficient to pay the additional pension tax. Forget waiting times.
Nobody will be stupid enough to pay to work. Just let it build. Any doctor that come will leave once they realize the workings of this dishonest system.
You get what you pay for. If 111 call handlers cannot help, I doubt AI will help. There will be more cases. Face to face is giving best possible care and if that is what the country wants, then it should pay for it, otherwise stick with the next best thing.
"Free things lends itself to abuse." Nobody want to see people in dire straits but there has to be limits especially when one has to fund it sacrificing their own appointments. I challenge all those to reality and fund others in an unlimited way not just with easy words pretending to be "nice".
Well said Cobblers. Gives a nice balanced realistic view.
Mr Johnson said: 'The NHS is revered for the world-class care it provides every day – a treasured institution that showcases the very best of Britain'--Sorry to say that is wrong. It is not world class with long waiting lists, dirty hospitals, lack of beds, lack of staff, lack of patient choice and it certainly is not the very best of Britain. We can do better. Sort the pension out for starters and actually make work pay before more staff leave.
The system is not sustainable and has to change. Charges need to be brought in.
