So ''continuity of care'' still exists in UK General Practice? From ''Cradle to Grave''? Amazing!!
Excellent piece! Mr Hunt your job of finding 5,000 GPs all done for you, by Dr Peverly. A recovering GP. Go get them. Send them all for the Induction and Referesher Exams and attachments (for those of thewm who manage to pass)and in 6 months you will have 5,000 Refreshed GPs!
Hopefully emergence of GPwS interest in Endoscopy?
Congratulations to Dr Serrano. Hopefully this ruling may restrain certain sections of the press from publishing inaccurate reports against doctors and the profession.
My utmost respect and admiration for these colleagues. Pulse may wish to consider publishing the list of members on their selection panel, along with their declared interests. Just for the sake of transparency.
May the soul of Tom rest in peace. I sincerely hope Mr Hunt reads this article, and the letter from his widow.
Apologies, to the sun, I meant the Daily Mail.
Perhaps better to not comment on this, as the case is still undergoing hearing before a judge. We do not wish to see this case dismissed due to honestly held expressed opinions. Not long ago, a pre-trial comment, made by politicians, led to the further trial of Andy Coulson, on accusations of abuse in public office and attempting to pervert the course of justice collapse. Let's be patient and see the outcome of this trial. It's in the interest of all GPs, The Pulse and indeed the Sun for this trial to reach a conclusion.
Congratulations. Very well deserved.
A good choice by the BMA for the task. In my opinion.
The new system has unfortunately driven many trainers out of training. A few trainers who couldn't imagine life in General Practice without being trainers have retired prematurely. Surely the Deaneries must have some statistics on fall in trainers. They should appoint mentors for trainers and invest all it takes in retaining them.
I hope the Government is listening. Leave it alone!
The article by the Daily Mail actually made me laugh. I don't think we should be taking them serious anymore. In fact even the news review team on Sky News found it hilarious. I just wonder if the general British public take the Daily Mail serious anymore.
This high consultation rates is neither in the interest of the Patients' nor the Doctors healths and morale. The MDDU has already shown a correlation between high consultation rates and increased reporting of Doctors to the GMC.
NHS England, and the Minister, should consider extending this offer to all practices who could put up a bussiness case that they are in similar circumstances, or likely to be in the very near future. Prevention is always better than cure.
I still find it difficult to believe that The Times could ever get engaged in an anti-GP smear campaign. What has happened to good investigative journalism?
Hopefully we'd get there at last! It's a question of when NOT if.
The LCP was greatly misunderstood. No training, and the right publicity, to health care workers and patients were undertaken prior to introduction. Not until The Daily Mail and the likes of it got hold of it!
I am very sorry that Una left the college. I will urge her to reconsider her position, if possible. It is always better to represent your believes, and those of others, from within than from outside. Having said that, Una is more than likely to continue fighting for what she considers right as a BMA Council member.
It's not the Practice that should pay. NHS England should reintroduce golden hellos and bump up seniority payments to stop our senior colleagues retiring prematurely!
