Once again we are "best placed".
If they can buy it OTC it should be public health or just ban it if it is so risky. Stop pushing the responsibility to us. People can actually think and decide for themselves.
Hard to have compassion when one is so stressed. Unlimited demand with limited staff and resources. Investigations bounced, asked to re-refer, dealing with complains etc. Just signed over 300 scripts. Yes it is a Sh*t job now. I would not recommend it.
I would probably sign only 12 scripts if it was private and take my time seeing patients. No review, no script. The amount of risk in the NHS is terrible.
Value for money= Pay to work. Unfortunately, he is dealing with people who are the top students.
We say NO. Take us private BMA, we've had enough of being told what to do and controlled by idiots. No more Mr Nice Guy or being Yes men/women.
Freedom is beyond price. Brexit now NHSexit.
The GPC should say a big NO. Reject it. If they don't like it, we can all go private and stop this useless meetings, yearly contract changes. Try doing that to any employee at your practice. Doctors have less rights than others, quadruple jeopardy etc and that is unacceptable. Get the control back BMA. Have a back bone.
Seen the useful comments. And you are supposed to know how much pension has grown when nobody dose so you can pay the tax on it or pay a fine and interest for getting it wrong! GPs have crystal balls.
It is both dishonest and a deceitful. Trust in the pension and the government is gone.
Take us private BMA.
I am sure that GPs are "best placed" again.
Forcefully stopping someone from leaving can bring about charges of "deprivation of liberty", just like putting up side rails on a bed to stop the elderly falling. That leads to guess what, GMC, police etc. all blown out of proportion and exaggerated and twisted to undo the GP.
My Australian friends are amazed, you get punished for helping in the UK.
Brilliant! Had me in stitches. Thanks Copperfield.
If only we can be as cheerful about the state the medical profession is in no thanks to the weak BMA.
What a waste of time. It is people like these that are not seeing patients and trying to tell coal faced GPs what to do as clearly they have "more" clinical experience not seeing a lot of patients. A gimmick.
I like you move David Banner!
Not to worry, more IT, skype, more pay to work, more CQC, more rules, more noctors and more social prescribers, more appraisal, more tax, more pension stealing, more NEWS scoring, more charges on Gross Negligence Manslaughter will help retain staff and make the system safer!
It really "pays" to help. (Paying with both your life and money).
Scores enable them to control and beat you with a stick.
It allows non clinicians or semi clinicians a simple way to gain control over the clinician and when the score did not work, they will still blame the clinician. It also allows some people to further their CVs.
No score can measure the quality of General Practice as it is far too complex and variable.
CO cert from the GP. More work. Just what we need.
Cut the tax and let the patient decide how to spend their hard earned money instead of the big state deciding for them. People will not be as judgmental if it does not affect how they can access health or what silly procedure they want to spend their own money on.
Nice story.Glad to hear you are doing well. So it appears people are not dying or have poorer health without the NHS? I would argue that some actually get better care with drugs both patient and doctor agree without interference and they get seen quicker. Referrals are received with thanks not bounced or returned with some insult. Morale is actually high. The BMA need to wake up and get us the professional control back.
Nice one, keeps the job going for longer with zero accountability.
Nobody is surprised but how are the pen pushers going to audit and control us if we do not do it and keep themselves in a job?
One of the reasons why it is so insulting, depressing and demeaning to work in the NHS.
Zero professional freedom and getting all the blame. Taking orders from people who has either not been to medical school or who are less experienced and less resilient and cannot do full time GP work.
Take us private BMA, it will force some pen pushers to actually see some patients as doctors are meant to do.
I wonder how much the state funds these advisers and quangos and how much work and time they have cause doctors. And you wonder why you have no time to see patients dealing with all the bureaucracy.
Trust has completely gone which is the only logical conclusion to these dishonest lies.
Nobody knows how much the pension will grow without a crystal ball and yet you are expected to pay the tax for that! I have left the scheme and will not go back to it or work any harder as it does not pay to work. If I mess up at least I can blame myself and rather than leaving my future to Crapita.
Doctors from abroad do not come here for 2 main reasons.
1) Look at how much you get take home after all the tax, land registry tax, inheritance tax and pension tax etc. They will con you with the initial figure.
2) The blame + compensation culture. You get not just being struck off but jail time in a high pressure, high workload environment with your scans, referrals, investigations being rejected due to poor resourcing and staffing but they expect world class outcomes. In short they want a Bentley paying Ford money.
Recent BBC news of the Billions the NHS is due for legal fees, it is just a matter of time before the whole system collapses.
Big surprise. The BMA should expect this. Trust in the pension is gone. The readers have already predicted this. They will probably drag it and not pay it until the year 2120 if it does happen. In a sarcastic way:
"The state knows how to best spend the money you've earned as clearly the idiots that managed to earn it are clueless".
The police should be involved but I am not holding my breath for any real deterrence knowing the out of touch judges.
So true Harry. It is so easy to take other's money and spend it on meaningless things, gamble it or giving themselves a pay rise.
"We know how best to spend the money, you've earned".
The collection is not done properly and not being passed on. Any accountability? Guess not.
