There is a major difference between talk the talk and walk the walk.
Unfortunately politicians can only do one.
Meanwhile the the rest of us left will manfully struggle while politicians have 5 weeks campaigning.
100% agree with the tone of all of the above. Unless I'm mistaken we have no functional law passing government till 13/12/19 at earliest and thus BMA can demand as many laws as it wants because its got F*** **L chance of getting near the statute books, far less debated and even then how exactly is it enforceable?
This is complete waste of breathable air uttering it and a pointless use of twigs/rags/pulp if on paper!
If you want to be really scared a recently qualified pharmacist had to google what a shingles rash looked like prior to advising the patient, mind you they did better than the "locum" Dr who saw patient few hours earlier and wasn't sure what it was!
Dignitas has a growing appeal if this is sort who will be caring for me post imminent retirement!
Yep that should help fill the few seconds I have free any day.
One assumes no payment, encouraged to do it by our supportive leadership and expectations will be doing same next year and onwards for SFA.
Roll on 4/20
Agree would love to have better direct access to CT especially for my higher risk patients (we do have abnormal CXR pathway direct to CT) but my radiology department is on its knees currently regarding capacity so suspect I would be a tad unpopular if even tried asking for this.
That should greatly help the 4/5ths left no doubt.
100% agree with above comments.
Hardly surprising comments from them but their mentality appears to be we’re more shit than last time so we must inspect more to root out the the really shit.
Forgets the point that they and the other reasons they have contributed towards the crap work space.
Assume annual fees will be increasing again to justify themselves!
GP Spa’s must be well paid with regular annual increases.
Nothing new. Same theme when started as GP!
Best one locally recently when trust did some IT work on one of its “servers” but forgot to restart afterwards.
Never had so many letters/discharges in one day.
Virgin as bad, so many letters in one go sent a massive file for my staff to unpick!
The said part is the she can write such ill advised bilge.
Concession isn’t the exact wording just an understanding and empathy and practical nouse around the current work place.
With that in mind lack of CPR equipment is likely more important than a tap running protocol? From a true example locally and my “nouse” tells me which ranks higher?
Perhaps she needs to look and reflect on “responsive” and “respect”
Agree the usual sticking plaster mentality to a problem from a government that that is as useful as a chocolate fire guard and a pleasant to deal with as a fart in a space suit.
Virtually nothing no correction nothing would get me to alter my current plan.
About time too: got SFA from numerous people/services when reported a GP practice within our PFI building numerous times over 4 years.
Soon perked up when cut off the electricity!
Exactly as the others have said.
I refer back to Blackadder goes forth and a plan (last episode I think) that was regrettably “bollocks!”
Good to see history repeat itself
Beyond shuffling the deckchairs well and truly sunk.
Actually red the all the above and have no idea why or have any take home "nugget to add to my PDP
Poor Manchester it’s taken a private company to give them NHS services 24/7 and 365 days a year they deserve.
No idea I’ve been such a slack lazy shister for last 27 years.
Any ETA for rolling out to Grimsby area they must be a real “cash-cow”
Excellent: tick enough boxes get what you want, use your training/knowledge/common sense of many years and your stuffed!
Excellent article more you give the more the bastards take/expect.
Drop dead at work and work still gets done.
Personally worked with # arm, consulted during personal renal colic, stitched episiotomy with # wrist etc and no one from NHS E gives a flying f**k
Done with NHS and April isn’t soon enough!
Quite accurate and succinct David Banner.
27 years in my practice with individual lists and soon to be no more.
Thanks to all in Government and NHS E and others.
Well said GP Monkey
Default NHS E GP's must be the worst as they are easiest to shift blame onto!
Keep this sort of crap coming it will really help both "talking up the GP job" and "staff retention"
Exqcty as said by Turn Out and Decorum
Yep very decisive Mr Hancock et al.
Bexit on the horizon and the Government close down and do SFA.
I doubt anyone from my era doesn't have a cunning plan and it 100% doesn't involve the NHS.
"significant further action" comes too f******g late.
Done the maths and 2 finger salute to you all in NHS E by 31/3/20
Entirely right and proper that he should apologize.
He ought to concentrate his efforts at getting a backbone so a) isn't seen slouching b) doing what he's paid for by you and I, namely sorting Brexit
