Good Piece. JHB has a big enough platform already. She can spout off whenever she likes; she does not need to be in Q+A for the RCGP members to politely applaud her presence.I'd rather hear from someone that the floor could influence or be influenced by to promote quality primary care in the UK. Something along the lines of what the RCGP should be there for. I will donate 500 to a charity if JHB writes a piece extolling the virtues of GPs and the NHS without any mudslinging, bile, mention of gold plated pensions and part time working that reflects what we actually do.
Rule one of 'House'- patients lie. Drs make terrible patients so I suspect under reporting is massive due to fear of our regulators throwing decent but distressed doctors on the nightmare supervision that GMC call help.
We need to define part time against the average working week of most people; or, even better, against those that work in safety critical roles. I suspect a six session GP averages 40 hours after adding in training, additional hours and extended access projects.

Ha! Never had a locum refuse to come back. Double pay post Brexit with the millions to dish out
Here's my Brexit contingency plan.
We will have 340 million a week to divi up, so I plan a party, a locum, a pay-rise for my staff, an extra 2 GPs to get the ratio below 1:2000 GP/patients and a holiday.
The loss of GPs quotes as 593 or 2% is meaningless.
If you state that leave 1.2million patients without a GP it means more! Daily Fail style reporting. However we know that those 1.2m patients will have a GP who has too many patient to be safe. They love the airline analogy- same number of passengers flying but 1.2 million passengers have to get into already full planes- like that happens!
450 WTE GPs is approximately 900000 patients without a GP; except it isn't as the rest of us just have higher list sizes, burn out, reduce hours and the domino effect speeds up.
Is it shiny like at school or triple ply soft Andrex?
I'll try but I suspect I won't have time to complete :)

Good primary care has always hinged on local knowledge of people and continuity of care. Bigger is not better or cheaper in healthcare, we know it, Nuffield are showing it but it doesn't suit the government as their mates cant make a buck out of it; but never let facts get in the way of profit
AND in other news- extra money in primary care clawed back from partnerships as pension and indemnity costs rise.
GPs showing poor performance.
Give service to private sector, which is always better, of course.
Promotion for 'saving' money and annoying GPs.
Doing the same thing again and expecting different results is excellent (for the management consultants) Pulse 2025: 'Management consultants paid 3.4million for GP IT consultation'
Going going Gong. What a Muppet. If I was SoS now I'd be crowing that most of general practice is good or outstanding proving, and let me be clear, we don't need to waste the hardworking taxpayer's money on more investment as the GPs are doing a great job and are well remunerated. Primary care is strong and stable. --The man is delusional.--
Another SoS that understands what GPs are (not.)
