You can't expect all the benefits without any of the drawbacks and expect practices to book you when there isn't any work.
You can say the same with regards NHS England
And how practices expect to be payed
You can't expect all the benefits without any of the drawbacks and expect NHS England to pay you when there isn't any work done for qoff and access has been significantly reduced
Let the locums eat cake?
You may lose your head
Bring back JCPTGP
Well who is medicolegal responsible if there is a COVID BAME death??
Each BAME member has to self assess their own risk..And only proceed with work which is safe...
Or sign a statement that they are aware of the risks and take full responsibility to proceed...
Employers have a duty to protect their staff as much as possible
Who will enforce this?
NHS England or CQC
Let's say there is a situation of bare minimum service provision...
Phone consults as much as possible...
1. Patients deserve better access
2. Patients deserve better care
3. NHS England..
should inspect to ensure
They are getting value for money
4. A fixed amount of patient contacts needs to be ensured...and where a practice is not able to do this..then there needs to be funding for locum cover..
I suspect NHS england is complicit in allowing a bare skeleton service
and does not want to fund locum coverage where it is needed
Has anyone ensured a full BAME Risk analysis?
Hospitals still haven't
They say Locum work has ended... in reality the current environment should mean locums are needed more than ever..
I welcome CQC Assessments 1. To ensure General practice staff are risk assessed and protected from COVID
2. Patient appointment availability reflects the true size of a practice
The future looks like there will be so much more bullying and abuse in general practice
by general practice
You know who you are..
Too much common sense
Do not hold your breath though
Dear BMA... What are you doing to help GP Locums
Furloughed and unemployed Doctors..
Those that are still your members..
Stay at home
We all know the real number has surpassed
50 000 deaths...
10 000 care home deaths unexplained
An inconvenient truth
Like the rising R number
Masks reduce spread
But FFP3 prevents catching the virus
Home made masks need to be three layers thick.
Just sewing ear holders to a rectangle is unlikely to be good enough..
Their failings have led to large numbers of unnecessary deaths and serious illnesses. In addition, the failings of government have been aggravated by the making of wholly disingenuous, misleading and - in some cases - plainly false statements suggesting that everything necessary has been done to protect..
Summs up every aspect of COVID mismanagement
Boris says he is proud?!
Has the Government / NHS England behaved unlawfully in lack of PPE provision?
Sky News has obtained a copy of the letter sent by lawyers representing Dr Gardner.
In it lawyers write: "Our client believes that the policies and measures adopted by the health secretary, NHS England and Public Health England have manifestly failed to protect the health, wellbeing and right to life of those residing and working in care homes.
"Their failings have led to large numbers of unnecessary deaths and serious illnesses. In addition, the failings of government have been aggravated by the making of wholly disingenuous, misleading and - in some cases - plainly false statements suggesting that everything necessary has been done to protect care homes during the pandemic."
Dr Gardner said: "They must answer for the policies they put out and most importantly for what they failed to do at a time when they knew that people were at risk; they knew that some people were more vulnerable than others; they took a positive step to discharge people from hospital into a place packed full of vulnerable people and that decision is so shocking it's almost unbelievable."
Which speciality was he rotating in....?
Did he have enough PPE
Is the trust liable?
Test and trace...a national disgrace
.. Matt has failed every step and is clearly burnt out
He doesn't care anymore
He's always hiding a smirk
You would think..
Test and trace would be given a month at least..
No new cases being reported...
Then it would be safe....
How exactly are they calculating th R number...
What's the R number on a packed beach
Sweden had no lockdown
It did not work
Are Test and trace part of NHS....
Heard many are twiddling their thumbs as the software is not working
Many shifts advertised
Potential money for doing nothing...
Sounds good ...but actually lots having trouble getting payed for shifts taken and covered. ..
Too early start
To bury Dominic Cummings incident
To support too early release of Lockdown
South Korea noted respike
2nd wave here?
1. A clinically suspicious case is tested
2. The contacts will not be tested..but will be told to isolate.alone
Their household does not have to isolate..
Sounds like there are distribution issues with the quantities of tests
Let's blame Turkey again?
They didn't send it
They sent poor quality
So many cover ups?
So much bullying
Justice for Emily
... if you are Dominic Cummings... feel free to ignore the above
Use your instincts
Will those with new eyesight issues need testing?
40 000+ dead
Failures at various stages
Dominic Cummings incident
Boris: Its time we moved on
Matt: We need to watch our tone
Still no definite testing of
ALL NHS Workers and
ALL CARE Home staff
ALL Discharges back to care homes..
Better than nothing
But feels alot like closing the gate after the horse has bolted..
Different strategies in different areas
In say small rural pockets..test everyone
If all clear.. road block the area as a safe zone
The GOV has learnt not to set arbitrary figures..
It later cannot meet..
or which reveals it's own badly thought out strategies
Who are all these contact tracers.. would not be surprised if they are Tory party supporters / canvassers.
Did not see any national uptake programmes?
Hidden Herd immunity strategy continues?
Survival of the fittest/Luckiest?
What about false negatives?
Why not just apply contact tracing
ALL clinically positive cases?
