we can send a copy by Fax??
the Barnett formula strikes again....
excuse me , whilst i go and wash my keyboard!
From discussions with colleagues who are thinking of GPVT, it seems their ambitions are to do part time Locum’s and never become a Partner!
So it doesn’t bode well for the future ( GPS & patients )
Lots of ads in the Tubes today ( London). No mention of patient sifting!
Just how big can a 1 principal practice get? (or his bank a/c?)
What happened to the archived / backups of data???
1 do more backups

According to last nights Panorama, the mother suggested that he had not had his evening dose.
It was not written up by Dr B.
The nurse talked to Dr AN other who seems to have said that it was ok for mother to give it.
Subsequent arrest/ collapse of child.
The nurse was also convicted of manslaughter, and I believe struck off.
So the Fulham practice can claim
New patient fee
Out of area fee
A licence or print money!!
it makes you yearn for the good old days of the GP Coops!
lower cost care, with low OOH workloaad for individual GPS. Thrown out with the last GP contract - collapsed or bought up by Commercial sector (Harmoni).
the intersting thing is what happens to patients who have easier access.
A US paper on Virtual/ Remote care suggests that improved access increases demand!
Evidence of increased utilization over time: As shown on the right,
members who have had access to Teladoc for longer periods of time
use the solution more frequently than those who recently joined: the
utilization rate for users onboarded in 2013/2014 is nearly twice as high
as for the recently onboarded 2016 cohort. This virtual care model,
therefore, is not just a “flash-in-the-pan” offering but a product that gains
momentum over time.
This is the sting in the tail for funders of Babylon etc!!
Access breeds Excess!!
Clare Gerada is the best thisng ever invented for sick doctors, and the concept of the new group sounds like something we should all support.
i hope that if you contact it it will provide support.
All wounds heal eventually, but the scars serve as reminders.
Will this be legal after GDPR is implemented next month?
(EU General Data Protection Regulations)
Data on consultation / prescribing / F2F visits / home visits etc should be available ( pre and post implementation) in order to estimate if changes in patient care-seeking behaviour has resulted from access to this service.
I suspect all care seeking behaviours will Be increased by this service - Access Best reeds excess!!
Access breeds excess!
I will be interested to see how they cope with unleashing the demand Genie!
Those of us with long memories may remember the last attempt to set up an independent defence organisation.
ISTR that it ended badly and that at the end GOS were queuing at the doors of MDU/MPS to rejoin!
GPs are a high risk group, so the newcomer will need deep pockets!
who has medico-legal responsibility for the false negatives ( as well as accepting costs of false-positives!)?
the lawyers will have a field day!
Intrusive ads - install Ad-Blocker ( PC/windows/IOS)
Makes you long for the heady days of GP coops. Alas killed overnight by the £6000 offer, but they were the best thing that we as GPsmanaged to organise.
We invented OOH centres, computer assisted nurse triage And the IT systems to support remote GPS in cars. We orovid d care by local GOS who understood the system, and the individual workload was manageable.
Why did the DoH think it was a poor system??
All gone now, like tears in the rain...
The charity Had an annual income of £270k , and expended £12k on charitable works.
They also spent £295k on support services!!
Sound as if the charity coMmissioners need to look at this, as they may be in breach of their charitable status ( And the benefits thereof)
In NW LOndon the GP trainees always referred to Playschool!
