This confirms my suspicion that ANY form of part time work/locuming after retirement is now totally out of the question
Your loss not mine!
another clueless chinless wonder
I have a dream:
That this nightmare will end
You don't need an expensive review.
Just ask the GPs at the coal face - we will tell you all you need to know.
He will be turning in his grave at the sad demise of a once great profession.
These are not doctor leaders.
They talk a lot at conferences but don't say anything or do anything.
They talk about capping numbers and then retreat to their portfolio 3 sessions a week.
They don't represent me.
Frankly, who the hell cares.
Call yourself what you like but the Government has decided to get rid of you anyway.
Here are some better names:
Dogsbody, nobody, justaGP, cardigan, treehugger, Jesussandals, uselessleftie, spinelessmillenial, Huntsplaything, NHSLackie, wasteofspace, ideallyplaced, Timnicebutdim, idealisticfool, candlewavingsofty...
The list goes on.
Any more out there?
Agree with Fedup.
Giving speeches at conferences with no impact do not give you the ridiculous moniker of 'Top GP'.
9 sessions a week at the coal face like I do, perhaps do!
We must catch those horrible GP murderers red-handed. Awful people, just get rid of them. What good have they ever done?
Missed my Nan's cancer diagnosis.
Not even proper doctors.
I don't even bother with them, I just Google what's wrong with me anyway..
Non evidence-based weekly appraisals and annual revalidation will now follow.
Helen Stokes-Lampard:'we welcome the long overdue tightening up of the GP regulatory process'.
None of this will reach GP.
It's all to prop up a few failing hospitals.
Who cares anyway, I'm out in 2021.
God I'm sick of dementia
I agree, Geoff Boycott
Even cheaper, or more cheap.
Not 'even more cheaper'.
Slam dunk Hunt
4 years to go.
Well done Hunt.
Not you again?
Shaba N is correct.
If Dr Hall is so keen on visits, she can do them!
They are a colossal waste of time and often undertaken in terrible weather, icy roads, snow and pitch dark - with zero consideration for the health and well-being of the GP.
I do as few as is humanly possible.
The only indication is genuinely housebound and terminally ill but even these are increasingly the remit of 'hospice at home' nurses and paramedics.
With the impending salaried service and destruction of partnerships, visits will no longer be part of the GPs job.
Another angle to pursue for the permanently offended.
Nice one Arvind.
How many GP sessions do you do?
