Indemnity paid, yes please
Shouldn't we be lobbying the government to spend the European average on health care before supporting cuts. Be careful , may end up like Turkey's voting for christmas
Why should practices have to " claim" for monies owed? Rediculious
I'm a Scottish GP so I'm intruding on English grief, but even if the government wants GPs to resign what other choice do GPs have? - incidentally if GPs do resign, (just as if junior doctors had continued to Strike) we would win. By not resigning J. Hunt will definitely win
Consistently poles suggest the majority of people would pay more taxes to fund the NHS (although it would be nice if big companies paid there due) Until we fund the NHS to the European average I think it is too early to claim it is unsustainable and not fit for purpose
When is this line in the sand going to be drawn and signed resignations handed in
Time is running out, if there is a Tory landslide
It's ok, the EU doctors will do it. Oh, wait a minute!!!!
Wouldn't a better headline be "Tell government to stop criticising ALL NHS staff"
Hospitals can do/ should do this already.
Is this just more spin?
I assume they will continue to do as before
I suspect this discussion is too late. EU nationals are vital to many industries not just health.
The Brexitiers managed to convince a majority (slim majority) that the NHS would be over £300 million a week better off!!
And sadly I really don't think HMG cares what GPs think!
It is bizarre the way we are paid. All the problems of being self employed but none of the benefits
Getting notification to apply for £10k doesn't seem very professional. What are the strings? Will it be clawed back. If you have to spend it by the end of March what does it go on. Too much for a couple of PCs, too little for a major capital expenditure. It does give HMG soundbite a " we have generously offered practices X million pounds"
The big problem is that if it isn't an accident or an emergency then patients (or are they customers?) should not be seen and told to leave the department.
I'm not sure how anyone can say the current changes are "welcomed" unless we are given a vote. No one has asked my opinion
Shouldn't these provisions been made made years ago, before bed occupancy rates were in the high 90's?
Same thing happened years ago with psychiatric care. Wards were shut BEFORE adequate provision was established in the community
They will never learn!!
So if you cut funding for GP educators, and abolish nursing bursaries, it will certainly improve GP and Nursing numbers in NHS. #theyjuztdon'tcare
£7.5 million for the whole of Scotland?
What is the difference between a salaried service where GPs are employed by the government (and the government would be liable for sick pay, holiday pay, locum provision, post graduate education) and large practices where individual doctors have little or no control?
I'm not advocating a salaried service but surely that is as attractive to most doctors than working in a very large practice , where they would still have financial liabilities?
I know it is a crazy idea , but couldn't General Physicians be General Physicians and GPs be GPs (or Consultants in Primary Care)?
Yet more of secondary care workload being dumped on primary care(with very little if any extra funding), and I suspect without any consultation with our secondary care colleagues either.
