Overworked GP practices in crisis put out urgent call for consultants to work sessions.
750X150=£112,500. You must be a GP in a wealthy healthy area. In 25th as a Cornish GP I never made that much
'guarantee that everyone over 75 will get a same-day appointment if they need one'
We already provide this.
What the daily mail thinks their readers are being promised is a same day appt if they WANT one
and here's the GMC's email address
here's how to request the info from the GMC:
or of course if your are a bear of little brain like me, 60mg/kg/day = 10mg/kg q4hly [ easy rithmetic ] and half as much again q6hly

Counter terrorism lead!
Well kiss my Glock, just what I've been waiting for!
I trust the CCG will now look favourably on my casting out of demons LES application, I feel more and more at home in the new Waffen NHS.
Yet another reason why this is a mad bad idea. What will be defined as "a serious crime"? Presumably that GCHQ have intercepted an email dissenting from government policy, or your face has appeared on a surveillance photo at a demo.

GP contract set to change as Hunt hands responsibility for out-of-hours care back to general practice
"a new chief inspector of general practice...inside the CQC...would help drive up standards of excellence in GP practices"
Of course! that's how Monty won at Alemein! He 'drove up' the fighting spirit of his troops!
