Another gentle soul sacrificed by this PPE fiasco
Bottom line- What exactly is the treatment for Covid-19patients who drive to the Hub ? Go home, isolate and look for breathlessness as a harbinger of needing Hospital admission. So why are GPs being offered here for the slaughter? An idea purely pushed to try and splint the crumbling NHS 111 service. Zero logic, zero use and homicidal to GPs at best.
This only benefits the CQC. Jobs.. jobs... Tax payers money
Pouring in more money is a bit like uncontrolled Diabetes now. Pushing more sugar around (funding in various forms)... but a lot of the Insulin has long gone ( GPs have been lost to the system). Even a Pacreatic transplant has failed ( Recruitment of overseas GPs). Wait for the festering.... and as all are in a network (PCNs) the gangrene will spread rapidly.
You have summed up most GP's feelings in a mild, soft-spoken way. I fear my post would be deleted if I were to explode into the real expletives one really wants to blast out.
You have hit the nail on the head.......From Australia !!!!
Although USP of GPs is their Emotional intelligence, putting down AI as pointless is just kidding oneself. The ability to shortlist and cone down from a list of differentials as well as rope a few unliklies that a human GP would not normally think of, can be helpful. AI can be used as a refining tool rather than a blind lead. as GPs with USPs... keeping an OPEN MIND is probably equally important for the future. It is precisely the same Emotional intelligence kicking in and trying to protect our domain. We will probably be having different conversations in a few years time.
I suggest we use the Car park for this and ask Sessional GPs put up a marquee titled ' Sectional GP'
You shot from the hip and I mean that as a compliment Nigel. All the best.
I know exactly what you mean. Been there. A poignant part of my life. will never forget
Gutsy article - saying all that most BME doctors have wanted to express all their lives.
Echo sentiments from 'cobblers' @ 5:52pm. Well said.
Very brave and fair Nigel.
True.... very true
Mr.Hunt..... there is this one chance to redeem yourself and atone for what you have done so far. GP indemnity ought to be paid for by the DoH.
A third of patients don't see their GP and end up as emergency admissions for cancer.

A 'Field' day on a 'Hunt'.......Purge coming on ???
Within a year of Revalidation, GMC quickly moves into position to take the credit. THE TRUTH IS, COMPLAINTS HAVE DROPPED BECAUSE MANY DOCTORS HAVE LEFT AND A LOT OF DOCTORS HAVE MANAGED TO SURVIVE AND REMIAN SANE IN SPITE OF THE GMC, CQC and NHS England.
ask me. I can certainly tell you where to put that Gong.
well said. Just like Governments of different countries do business with each other, so do individuals, whether it is the NHS or any other walk of life. They are all humans in a sea of humans, the only witless idiotic aliens being our politicians
