Come on you lazy GP bastards! Get off your collective jacksies, put that drink down in the nineteenth hole and do some work!
Tongue Very Much In Cheek.
NHSE has done a report listing patients. Good, NHSE can send out letters then. Admin work. GPs are at the fornt dealing with (in some cases) dying patients. Let them get on with it.
Interesting. No email received here. I am told that those of the awkward squad who told the GMC to shove it, whilst not paying the subs have not been invited as they left for administrative reasons and not in good standing.
Those doctors who paid the leaving fee, filled in the forms and got some worthy to sign to say they had nothing outstanding in the way of complaints left in "Good Standing". These doctors are being invited.
It matters not that over two years for me have gone by with no hint of scandal which should put put me in good standing. However I didn't pay the leaving fee - Bounder!
So it's the cardies over the top into the chattering machine gun of the Covid-19. Once this fodder has been chewed up they might invite me!
Don't laugh, I might, still, consider it. But I would need a Covid-19 IgG, PROPER PPE, and my standard locum Ts&Cs and payments. There would be no negotiation here, I don't need the money, hassle or risk.
Altruism for the sheople? No. NHS? Don't joke!
"Buxton Hospital treated RA's with the healing spring waters"
This is still an option not at Buxton Hospital but down the soda aisle in Tescos.

I am pleased that you've been through this ordeal unscathed Clare. However it may have been a "Cabin cough' or standard URTI until you are tested.
I'm in a similar position having got some lurgey off my granddaughter (bless) two weeks ago and the NHS has no interest in testing an old codger even a medical one who might be useful with CoVid-19 IgG.
The actual audacity of not providing valid PPE to front line primary care has now been vaguely resolved but far, far, too late. Operation Stable Door is right. This Covid-19 is out there in numbers, containment is not now possible. And remember the incubation period varies but around 5-7 days is average so we are probably a week behind the curve.
And as anonymous says, FFP2/3 is just placebo protection.
Hang onto your hats this might get a bit rough. When bog roll overbuying public meets Covid-19 it could break the NHS.
Oh and NEVER rely on NHS Indemnity to cover you. Always have a separate policy with a MDO who have (mostly) your interests at heart.
NHSE Indemnity will feed you to the wolves if it suits them
I'm firmly behind Dr Jessup on this one. Best survival tactic here is reduce mixing with the herd, not increasing it.
Dr Moulds' approach is more altruistic but much riskier and the kicker is, which made me laugh, he doesn't want paying!
Ultimate cardie but I suppose it'll keep him warm when he is shivering and shaking with Coronavirus thinking how indispensable he was.
Ivan Benett = Troll
Do not feed the troll, he'll love it.
It's shame I can't post pictures here as I have one which shows a rat and the caption is
"Here's a rat's arse as I'm out of fecks to give".
Sums up my thoughts.
Perhaps the powers that be might want to start with all those administrative doctors currently clogging up NHSE and PCNs. They to a (wo)man profess current clinical experience so the death rate shouldn't suddenly increase when they start.
Daft advice from NHSE as per.
So isolate this covid19 presumed person in a room after they have sneezed over the receptionist, sniffled in the waiting room and coughed on the doctor. Then what?
And come 6pm when practice needs to be locked up and staff go home?
Does NHSE think GP is a 24/7 operation?
new surveillance system = new money.
No? AND no PPE?
Do you own damn surveillance!
Katie I can't let this go without giving you my support and saying you are in the majority in terms of your views.
A GPs job can be wonderful but just not in the UK, for now.
I see even Shaba decides to have a poke. You kick puppies for fun Shaba?
Katie, just wait. A domino will fall probably in some coastal town and GP will fail.
Faced with minimal primary care the government will relax access to FP10s and NHS secondary care and private GPs will take off.
The Alt Left option would be to make all GPs salaried which will be underwhelming seeing how few will remain.
10:29am. This is not a Aktion T4 Gnadentod programme. Use of such shroud waving is just wrong. Whilst you may feel this is the thin end of the wedge it is not beyond the wit of man to make sure it isn't.
I would like the freedom the determine the method and time of my own death unless big G decides he wants a role.
So 51% of cardies, CARDIES, voted to change the RCGP stance to neutral or change the law on assisted dying.
That would appear to be a clear mandate for change? Did we not leave the EU on similar figures?
The RCGP is clearly not listening to its members.
Latest brain fart from her maj's gummint.
The fly in this ointment? Not enough GPs.
And as Fay rightly says we should be heading these patients away from AEU unless your idea long terms is to abolish GP.
I'll leave you with that thought. If you believe that is their aim then some of what they do makes sense.
Just sad that the current service in mental care is so bad that even a service approaching competence is seen as a beacon of hope.
Normal service will resume all too quickly.
Dr Sara Bodey told Pulse that GP trainees and medical students would save the day.
In so many words.
Definitely a glasses half full girl.

Evidence please. My imagination needs no encouragment.
Dear me, does Dr Vautrey work for NHSE as a sideline? Is he Dr Kanani in drag? We should be told because he is spouting the same guff as NHSE.
This contract has not addressed the major reasons for poor retention in GP which have been gone over time after time in this magazine. The older GPs will continue to exit and the dominos will start falling. Where will it start Folkestone anyone?
