BMA and RCGP should hang their heads in shame.
Not a single member of staff in our practice was positive (45 people) despite 2-3 having clinically had a covid illness. I think that the antibody test is garbage.
Christopher stop trolling us. The maximum tax rate in the UK is 60k on earnings between 100-125k due to the erosion of personal allowance. Then you pay NI on top of this so it’s actually higher.
I thought shielding was over?!
Just fill out this 400 page questionnaire by the end of the day as to why you feel stressed out...
Can someone let the pain clinics know please?
Nothing will change.
If they’re going to dump this amount of work I’d seriously prefer to see GPs nationalised into a fully salaried service. At least then it would not be our circus. We could leave the impossible logistics to NHS management.
They needs to be careful that they get what they wish for. As above, if they want a clock off culture they can have it.
I’d rather not be your guinea pig thanks all the same.
No thank you.
^^^^^ hear hear!
Isn't there still a doctor shortage???
There is no way we can squeeze 12 months of QOF work into 6 months while still social distancing. I think if this happens we should be balloting on strike action/work to rule/handing contracts back. Why do they hate us so much?!
Can we use this Emergency covid fund to cover the costs incurred if having to role out the meaningless antibody test? Consenting the patient, taking the test and discussion of the result is all going to take time and resources at a time when workload is rapidly returning to normal burn out levels.
Could Pulse please ask NHSE under which provision of GMS this falls under and if it does not how they expect to compel us to do this?!?!?!?
What a complete and utter farce. I bet this ends up as more GP work as they ask us to review them all. Again.
Here was me thinking that the BMA is a Doctor's Union?
I’d rather have access to PPE and the 60k of income that our practice is going to be down by this year. Thanks anyway.
What is the point in asymptomatic testing? Surely this is pure propaganda for HMG so that they can tell us they’re testing lots of people. Unless they’re going to swab me on a daily basis this is completely useless.
