"40 simple, single-issue consultations could be akin to 10 consultations with complex patients" .....pathetic line from the spineless RCGP!!
Every consult could potentially be complex and perhaps even land you with a manslaughter conviction....Anything and everything can walk through that door.... RCGP clearly have no idea about the day to day situations faced by GPs.
I wonder how many patients Helen Stokes-Lampard sees/saw in her typical day at the practice!
No thanks...I didn't go through GP training to work as an SHO under the A&E consultant/registrar...
Of course the current VTS program needs extending....after all how else will we reach Mr Hunt's 5000 new GPs target by 2020....lets just add an extra year to each of the ST3 Gp trainees...problem solved....and that too without much expense...RCGP do it now!!!
