The lunatics have taken over the asylum.
Presumably this means the increase of pain clinics. And when patients DNA they'll be dumped back to GPland. At this stage the Daily Mail will run a headline "Lazy GPs refuse to treat the suffers of chronic pain" !!!
All the GPs should walk away. You must stay united
As always GPs' practices and patients forgotten
There is NO discussion. QoF payments should be given.(Full stop)
But it was rushed!!!
Isn't that threat for ALL practices refusing to sign up?
Shouldn't ANY NHS staff member, deserve a substantial death in service payment, irespective of the cause? Whether full-time,partime, locum or other employment status
Does the NHS have a "duty of care" to protect GPs, or as we are self employed, can they wash their hands of blame?
Get well soon
Who is to blame for this lack of direction and slowness to test?
Is it the political leaders or their medical advisors
Generous to be provided with equipment for presumably unpaid work. It is interesting that 111 seems to have collapsed when people have been to contact them. In the past in any health crisis ,people were told to contact their GP and we just had to grin and bear it!!
How many extra thousands have the government promised?
So less specialty training?
I wonder if any health care professionals suggested this? Sounds like a high tech suggestion that Babylon sold to management
Will our fees be reduced?
My memory ( albeit failing memory) of the various roadshows ,was that the GPC was confident of delivering the services , despite misgivings from the floor. Are they blaming the lack of progress on HMG, rather than their unrealistic hopes of what could be delivered?
£90 is a derisory rate
I suspect that locums are not overpaid , but GPs, and Hospital clinicians are grossly underpaid
30 years ago when I locumed I earned a reasonable amount but partners earned significantly more. Now I suspect a locums sessional rate must be about equal, so years of experience and local knowledge have no value
I hope HMG doesn't use the study to run the whole service on locums and bank staff!!!
