Chickens coming home to roost???
many DGH A+E's were closed
many cant afford to traval to central locations
(East Lancs services moved to Blackburn)
central is best theory
now central cant cope
Managing gp's ?????
Not for profit GP's
Old GP Co-operatives
but of course
no one will take back the OOH contracts
unless fair funding
CLAUS = LUCAS = DEVIL
@ David Bannar
did you mean SATAN OR SANTA?
Everyone talks about winter pressure
but the cold doesnt come untill Late January February
Google/You tube "Truth about Christmas"
Maybe everyone is just
making the one and only true God
Think about it
@ Angus Podgomy
with NHS england
keeping them all fluffed up
leave Hunt as foreign secretary
Who else thinks the spying academic was given a pardon to his life sentence
in exchange for amnesty for MBIN Salman
Why the sudden generosity
or does Jeremy Hunt want to take credit for this good luck?
Hopefully Jeremy can help Nazanin
Does Iran need any amnesty agreements??
GP returners could be trainers without seeing any new patients
Training role could be specifically just sitting in
i.e like driving instructor sitting in on the trainees consults
but will need funding..
No RCGP ????
That's if there is a general practice
left in 2 years...
2020 .. nice round number to end on ??
Qualified in 2000
are you exited or exhausted ??
ironic as this is what you will get with poor voice recognition and an annoying spell checker
could be a good aid to document notes
after the patient has left
Given the trend to Skype type consults
a video recorded consult
will be very useful medico legally
More time will be required..
As in an exam scenario
(i) welcomes NHS England’s independent evaluation of GP at Hand service
how independent is this ????
NHS england seems all for this
unfair unsanctioned cherry picking service
whilst not allowing any other gp practice to do the same
level playing ground please
The health secretary said he is a patient of Babylon, and that the company is ‘taking the pressure off the NHS’.
does that mean he lives in their catchment area
because if he is outside the catchment area
he must leave babylon and publicly announce he has had to leave as he is outside the catchment area
The GPs voted in favour of the motion that said they ‘cannot have confidence in him if he continues to demonstrate ignorance of the value, worth and function of general practice’.
A HEALTH MINISTER SHOULD HAVE
1. DO A TEST DEMONSTRATING THEIR KNOWLEDGE BEFORE THEY TAKE A POST
(pLAB/ Citizenship tests)
2. Declare all conflicts of interests
and gifts / payments received
Is this the only area where you show ignorance after getting the post ?
A situation where A+E ambulance/a+e agrees to pay taxi costs on arrival
understand NHS earmarked moneys will not be spent due to a shortage of staff
could I suggest this money be spent here
if not already lost in previous shortfall costs
Lets not get started on the ambulance callers who then refuse to be admitted !!
This should face a penalty charge of some sort
If NHS England was to agree an emergency hourly rate beyond closing time
with proof of emergency ambulance delays
then this would resolve the issue
Otherwise clear guidance is required from the GMC as to where the liability lies.
Faster just to call a taxi ??
The problem is really for those patients who are extremely vulnerable and have no one else to support them or transport them
List size needs to be
per Number of "full time" partners
that way practices will be incentivised to improve working conditions to actually attract said partners
Having said this
how will it work when practices are closing and further strain is put on practices when patients are simply transferred across
If there was a limit in place it would put an end to this transferring !!??
so the Gov should be against it
but Practices already struggling should be all for it
traditionally 2000 patient list per partner ??
like Babylon the list size of healthy cherry picked patients can be as long as you like..
so long as they don't come in to be seen
so long as you get paid per patient on the list anyway
Most Gps know they have not been to see their own gp in years..
