Can’t help speculating about the future career prospects of anyone leaving capita for another health admin job...any references they have re their competence would be difficult to believe if they were applying for an admin job for our PCN for example!
If it frees me up so I can fit in an even denser workload of more complex patients per hour then please no - I will stay on sick leave instead
This is all very honest but we do need some bright doctors coming through to look after us in our old age,even if they do the job on their terms!
Cant see why people with learning and communication difficulties would find being asked to write a free text feedback any easier than a rating scale , just producing a scale with smiley faces instead of numbers would be more likely to get a response..otherwise I see no claim of benefit from any of the above tinkering whatsoever.
now Why didn’t they think of that before?
I could go along with us being sent a letter saying this person has been screened and an abnormality needs further investigation,please tell us if there is any reason why this shouldn’t be done (eg pt already known and investigated for it)Otherwise no reply needed - still needs us to check notes,but if evidence does turn up for effectiveness fair enough
Their leaflets were misleading our patients into thinking they were connected to our practice and we had a lot of very unhappy patients who had difficulty believing their missing prescription delivery was nothing to do with us and we could not do anything about it
Presumably once this system has been found to work we can then cut out the middleman as it were,and do without the gp present at all and we can then go off and do our audits,quipp and Qof requirements,appraisals etc...
Yes well that really worked for us this year - not. Fool me once ...
Why would anyone pay 5.99 for the chance to have an unpleasant swab test swab,fill in a questionnaire,then have an 85% chance of not getting a script anyway when they could badger a practice gp/ minor illness nurse for free with a sick note thrown in?
Surely they shouldn’t start anything new until they’ve put all their resources into sorting out all their previous errors,pension mistakes etc. (Obviously their remuneration for ghost hunting shouldn’t be handed over until they do start it either)
Somebody should do it but can’t see why gp should be anymore appropriate than other agencies
We, have just had to argue with nhs England over the same issue thought I was helping both the practice workload and my own return to work by doing some work under monitoring then told the reimbursement we were claiming wasn’t valid as I was doing some work not totally incapacitated. More importantly ,this same restriction is applied by sickness insurance policies and that can’t be argued with,so if off sick long enough to need to claim they can not count partial absence periods so I came within a hair of being financially scuppered by actually doing some work rather than no work while unwell!
Could we have the money for the huge overspends as well please,would solve some problems if not all...
They’ve Found a way to make it GPs’ fault ! Took them longer than usual with this one!
Hi this is helping me feel I am . not the only one neither is Merlin.got packed off on sick by occ health for m h reasons 3 days ago and colleagues also at breaking point Would’ve been better to have actually planned a sabbatical before this point bu who’s got the spare money?
PLEASE can the moderator delete Matthew Davies ‘ suggestion ASAP before the wrong person sees it or it will be taken as a serious suggestion aaaargh
Spending more time on more complex patients is fine until th BIG downside of no locum cover for annual leave or other activities.Resilience must be much better than mine however to have survived so long so best of luck
Drat I thought from the title there was a support service for lonely gps in the offing...
sounds like a WeightWatchers group , so I suppose it must have some success rate...but can't see where GPs would be 'ideally placed' for it
