We’re a health community when it comes to dumping work out into primary care but we’re certainly not in it altogether when it comes to negotiating these plans or helping primary care cope.
Most of these patients will need more nursing input at home and there are hundreds of community nurses drinking tea and eating hon nobs, aren’t there?
Copernicus: that meeting will instruct the GPC in what to negotiate.
The BMA has the statutory obligation to negotiate on behalf of all GPs, BMA members or not. They are often tied up in legislation and legal process on how to proceed but they have to negotiate steered by the LMC conference. To many GPs moan and self martyr themselves without getting involved and backing their union. I understand as a HP partner myself how difficult is to do when the day job is overwhelming but without the professions engagement the BMA has less power.
If 100% of GPs back GPC via their LMCs then we’d not be in the situation we are now. Too many cardies not enough armour plating.
A Dodo feather has just floored me in an arboretum. The Catholic Papa is helping me clean ursine faeces from my face and a bargepole seems to lodged sideways up my ar...
I do wish we’d quote patient numbers when we speak about lack of GPs. Impact would be more
Excellent. We can now off list anyone who DNAs and refer them back to... oh!
More seriously, if we do not act on the notification from the great and the good we would seen to be complicit in the failure of the patient being seen.
Airline, capacity issue, no pilots, plane grounded. Airline goes bust. Everyone is safe but no service.
Capacity issue is No1 safety issue. CQC is negligent is it doesn’t shut us down. No service, how safe is that!
We cannot be judged by commercial safety standards or otherwise unless there is finance and well evidenced rules on optimal GP/or/consultation length and No. per GP. Staff/pt ratio and secondary care provision also needs assessment when deciding whether WE are poor or outstanding! Most GP services are outstanding in the context in which they find themselves operating.
Shame we can’t compare the CQC against any other regulatory body...
Ex-President of GP college shows leadership by taking a job that isn’t in general practice. Bolt on social prescribing when we have to tools and resources to do the day job.
Holmes! I’m constipated.
Charge the manufacturers to do this work. they should take out ads and TV commercial so their 'customers' are made aware. I shall not be proactively doing anything in NHS time on this matter.
Ursine faecal matter found in arboretum, says the catholic Bishop of Rome
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.
