Spot on. Sitting here in Wales horrified by what I’m reading colleagues in England were being expected to do.
Just ban abusive patients from all NHS services and let them pay for private care. Would end the abuse in a second.
Matt Hancock is living up to the potential of his surname I see,claiming most home visits are done by nurses.
Funny to note that both in Wales and here, those voting against stopping home visits are either locums (so can declined) are were retired.
Excellent article Shaba. Thank you.
This is why I respect NHS England so much. Its the never-ending shower of ill-thought out crap that is so reassuring.
RCGP take note. They won't, but they should.
Addison’s, not Addinson’s
As I repeatedly decline to participate in Pulse Power 50, I would be grateful if Pulse would remove my name from this list. Thank you.
Well said Jaimie and excellent article by Pete Deveson.
I suppose they can just rely on booking time on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.
I personally know one of the two GPs. He is a conscientious, highly performing GP whom I would have no hesitation to work alongside or care for me or my family. There but for the grace of God do most of us go in this time pressured and fragmenting service,
I wonder if any of the GMC tribunal members were GPs. I suspect not. So how, exactly, are we being judged by peers who know what our working day is like?
Utterly inappropriately harsh action by the GMC, yet again.
Thank you for your work Anvishka. I note the ominous silence of no mention or response from NWIS in your article - only Microtest. NWIS are the bigger problem here I suspect - they seem trapped into following a flawed procurement and unwilling to face what many of us increasingly feel was a serious mistake. I would be delighted for NWIS to comment here.
Be better off setting an in-house coffee morning for group lonlieness, not a sky-pilot.
Well done David and Iain.
It’s published in the RCGP journal. That’s how much weight I will give this study. ‘Nuff said.
What is the purpose of these annual popularity contests? Most of those who appear are those doing the least work as actual GPs....
Evidence base from research studies? What is NNT to prevent one cardiac event, for example? Is this a cost-effective intervention given the opportunity cost?
Whether a drug, a wearable, a new managmenent policy - all interventions in NHS should be based on robust evidence. We don't have money to waste.
Sorry to be nerdy, but a 0.5% difference between groups (assuming about 800 males and females in respondents) would I guestimate not be statistically significantly different, so I'm wondering at the use of the phrase 'far more likely. Do a chi-squared test and report results please Pulse?
