Love the "Typhoid Mary Clinic" Matthew. How about "Covid no treatment clinics" to help manage expectations.
We can say you've got Covid 19 but there is no treatment even if you go because there isn't any.
Eye protection is essential. Nikki is thinking along the right lines. There is no point locking all the other doors and leave 2 doors wide open.
So what if you diagnosed Covid presumably with a reliable test. No vaccine, no antiviral. No PPEs. No PPE, no see.
Got someone discharged on antibiotics for a bowel perforation diagnosed by the GP clinically despite a negative scan initially before confirmation. He contacted guess who? The GP. Sent the poor chap in again.
Sure. Where is the Wi-fi and microphones as well as video cameras?
The current situation has highlighted how these useless organizations are not needed and that doctors should be managing themselves instead of some non medic justifying his job. The BMA needs to sort this. Apologize GMC to Dr Bawa Garba for pretending the conditions of practice are ideal for the pretend ideal outcomes.
The patients can always sue us without these middlemen if anything goes wrong.
The inadequate PPEs for doctors causes more Covid 19 spread by staff but are the GMC or CQC doing anything to "protect" patients and support doctors?
Thanks David Jenkins for the insight. To see that the media distortion about us living in a society with free speech is laughable now.
Not much of a difference to China then where the doctor was gagged.
So Mike Gove lied? Who would have guessed.
What is the BMA saying about this? Unilateral contract changes. What about the staff?
Realistically is that possible? At least the guidance will help us. No PPE no SEE. An infected doctor can infectboth staff and patients leading to a ridiculous weak part of the chain in the lockdown.
Philosopher 1 | Doctor in Training-One cannot avoid seeing all patients forever. These are only early days of Covid-19. There is nothing wrong in having the equipment needed to do the job unless you do not value your life and the lives of your family or colleagues. Some GPs prefer seeing patients for different reasons, sometimes due to clinical need rather than dumping on the hospital. A lot of conditions, reviews and diseases are being temporarily pushed back. It is only a matter of time before the demand comes back.
All trades deserve safety, supportive equipment/tools. Let us not short change and belittle our own profession, unless of course you are from the CQC.
No words can replace the inadequate PPEs. Unacceptable in all other industries. No tools, no job done. The family should sue the NHS. I feel really sad I have to say this.
Masks (expired or up to scratch?), aprons and gloves. Somebody has forgotten about the eyes. It is like having a fortress with two wide open doors when someone coughs in your face.
Well said KevlarCardie and thanks for the link revealing the hypocrite agent hunt. Now we know why we don't have proper PPEs.
Apologise to Dr Bawa Garba now. We have told you the workload is too much and unsafe. Yet you pretend we are working in optimal conditions delivering top care. Be realistic. Apologise GMC.
Germany test a lot more and look at the quality of the PPEs their staff are wearing, just screening people compared to our colleagues. The population also follows social distancing. Those differences will lead to different outcomes.
More lambs to the slaughter.
The uk should learn from the success of other countries. Testing, contact tracing and PPEs.
Thank you Copperfield for the years of brilliant writing. I shall pray for all my colleagues and pressurized for proper PPEs.
Where are the PPEs? I've got a cough.
