Where is the logic? A qualified GP thinks a blue light response is needed- shred the fucking protocol and JFDI!
Exchange 111 for GP and there would be Faily Hail front page headlines, MTPS, GMC and a Doctor scapegoated and struck off.
Imagine the post: Sad, compo-face, tilted for effect. 'I contacted my DigiDoc 10 times, I know my body, I know I needed antibiotics.'
Wow! Look at that lovely cloud and the bright light, the lovely warm wind and a tan. (Shame the rest of the shit that comes with it rots you to the core. You can talk up anything.)
How fast would action against these GPs if they refused to prescribe at all ‘leaving the patients in distress?’
As GP is de-funded further by allowing online access for NHS patients this issue will become more prominent.
Is there any mention of action being taken against the organisation that these GPs worked for? Or is it the clinician being the fall-guy?
We are having to work harder longer and faster thanks safe under increasing scrutiny to be perfect.
9 months of these GPs expertise is now denied to the public when both have been deemed safe to work again.
I await my turn!
Good precedent to have. Want a job done? Pay here first.
I’m a little tired of the grassroot knocking of the BMA.
I’m tired as I used to be one of the moaners. I decided that if I want change I’m the only one that can make it happen in my small sphere of influence. To do more I need to increase my sphere (my wife thinks I’m doing well due to waist size.) I joined the BMA, became a rep and have been to BMA conferences. They work very hard and for the last 9 years have been up against an ideology that opposes socialised medicine.
Join the BMA, contact your LMC and offer som e help.
Stelvio, don’t fall into the trap of repeating lies. Alan Woodall is not a member of the Labour Party. JHB has enough platforms and has used her power by getting an article published in the Spectator. We await her corrections.
Good luck to the trusts. If we work a 40 hour week with paid study leave and 5 weeks annual leave we need 1 GP for every 1700 patients to cover the current demand for appointments. This is to provide 15 minute appointments without admin time and 8 hours of F2F contacts a day.
Tena are making a fortune from me today.
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 :)
