It's appalling that so many records might actually be up-to-date! Someone should hack in and delete some information before GPs get chance to work out what their pensions might be!
That is a little sexist!
Male GPs might also wish to do something other than staying late under high pressure doing everything the world dumps on Partners and no-one else will do!
Everything that female GPs want, Men do too, so why should it not be available to BOTH.
I may be cynical, but I think this is an attempt at 'divide and rule' by the DoH/BMA, to make GPs fight amongst themselves, and end up just carrying on wiht the work for less pay and less free-time!
of course it is the doctors' fault so they must be subjected to corrective psychological treament. It would not make sense to improvre workplace conditions, because they are not the doctors' fault, and we cannot acknowledge problems with them because to do so would indicate a denial by doctors that they are the fault that needs correcting!
why do we still pay BMA?
all 12 consulting rooms now occupied.
where shall we put the rest of the patients who are coughing???
This is horrendous - those out of date GPs who do not give adequate weight to the signs of severe illness are a threat to safety, and should be bypassed to prevetn excess deaths: just get the clerk to call an ambulance for every patient with a NEWS score over 1, and patients can again have trust in the NHS, and doctors will be unemployed, but safe from being sued!
If patient wants a second opinion, they should bring photo of the surgeon with them to GP, and also the surgeon's Height, weight, and carbon monoxide printout!
I'd be happy to give the second opinion, carefully worded of course, to avoid any criticism of my colleagues excess BMI!
If Dr Grant Really said " to discharge patients before it is clinically appropriate to do so.", then this must be reported to the GMC as an indicator of a risk to safe practice of Dr Grant.
I saw way more than 13 patients on Christmas Day, but didn't realise I was supposed to be paid £ 3,000 for it! Was I supposed to keep records though, of their responses to 'Happy Christmas - How are you?'
and do TRs count? most of the church congregation were TRs. are they extra?
@ Neil and Dr Shashikanth : Marketing services to the patients of another GP is forbidden by GMC rules, and should always result in a rreport of the PCN medical director to the GMC for attempted poaching!
4) clearly if it isn;t cancer then the hospital doesn't give a big watery stool!
(it approximates to water/sugar/salt as in rehydration salts, if you allow nibbles of digetsive bicsuits!)
(but proper lemonade is no longer available, only water laced with non-calorific 'sweeteners' which make it unpalatable)...
Why can't patients be seen without records?
That is what we always do if there is an iT failure - it is best to be practiced at this, so you know how to cope; but it is just like doing a HOME VISIT, or seeing a TR!
No problem - unless they want a repeat prescription - and they SHOULD NOT be seeing the GP fo rthat!
This is a secondary care problem!
Using up Primary Care funding!
If they standardise all hospitals to a single system THAT WORKS, it would solve the problem - BUT IT NEEDN'T COST £40 million!
more like £4,000!!!
I don't understand this : according to patients in south wales, they can only have an appointment on the same day, as Practices are telling them that the government has forbidden them to give any advance appointments, leave alone at 3 weeks!
Is this a Proffessional issue?
Should GMC be notified if Consultant fails to cooperate with respect to GPs as fellow professionals?
Don't know why you lot are all fussing about the NHS - the patients have voted for more Boris and the dismantling of the NHS: you should all be planning to work in the private alternatives market - er, like dentists. Much more lucrative, and don;t worry about th epoor, they all voted for this too!
Andrew Jackson should be seeing those 9 patients on his daily ward rounds. Just the same as hospital doctors do in their nursing wards. GPs have families living in the community to look after, nursing homes is a specialist service that did not exist when the GMS contract was first drawn up! Thus it is a non-GMS service, and such patients should be recognised as being in an hospital, like they are.
A 'portfolio' GP who gets visit requests from patients she knows well - what is her list size? what a waste of resources.
And she makes requests for home support that a social worker fails to do - do they not have trained social workers around there?
Who is the Data Controller?
It is NOT the GP Practice any more, because the data is held elsewhere by the CCG/devolved nation, who controls access.
It is THEIR responsibility to check the notes before allowing access!
At last, something GPs can bless IT for!!
As a Hospital Doctor (PRHO, SHO) I dealt with all such results in whatever department I was in, usually in combination with my partner-colleague, as we worked in pairs or 3's. I phoned patients, issued prescriptions, faxed them to chemists if out-of-area, or occasionally contacted GPs in other areas for holidaymakers; I also issued Med3 notes for any patient needing them, although hospitals managers have since denied that we ever did these things.
When was history re-written?
I'm not all that old!
