‘he has been unable to get hold of key documents from a GP practice he used to work at back in Australia, which is not legally obliged to provide them.‘
What cloud did you leave under for them to not want to help you?

Why don’t they just scrap the AA altogether? Even without a taper many doctors will be stung.
I decline to do these already because I'm not trained to do them. This will not change my practice.
'Tackling neighbourhood inequalities' ; would love to know how they plan on fairly measuring the attainment of this target...!
'NHS England has guaranteed to cover 70% of the costs for pharmacists, physiotherapists, paramedics and physicians and 100% for social prescriber'
I think you unfortunately mean physicians assistants although a physician or two would actually be helpful.
Dr Rickets. Class.
We're not going to let a physicians assistant step foot in our surgery so there's some money we won't need to find.
Have we not long since learnt that it doesn't matter who is in what post? They're either Blue or Red and will toe the line regardless.
They always seem to find the money to bail out foundation trusts.
Here we go again, ‘GPs missing sepsis!!!’ Closely followed by ‘GPs over prescribing antibiotics and speeding up the post-antibiotic apocalypse!!!!’
Do me a favour.
2100 would be the dream!
But during the debate, Lord Young claimed 'less than 1% of taxpayers will be affected by the taper of £40,000 that was introduced, and more than 95% of those approaching pension age will not be affected by the lifetime allowance'.
The flip side to this argument is that if so few people are affected why bother penalising them in the first place, surely it won’t make a dent in the public finances?
For those of us who are fully tapered this plan is useless. Even at a 50% contribution I’ll be putting in 35k, meaning a potential AA tax bill annually of 45% of 25K. No thanks. I will definitely not be opting back into the scheme.

Privatisation may not be a bad idea if it stops these yearly contract changes and hoops to jump with no one knowing how you would land.
: I briefly worked for one of the big private health providers. I promise you it is not the land of milk and honey.
I’ve left the pension scheme at 34 years old. There’s 50K+ the Ponzi scheme is deprived of annually. Life insurance is incredibly reasonable at my age.
How does this work if a practice has chosen not to participate in the voluntary PCN DES? Or is this more evidence that there was nothing voluntary about it?
Hang your heads in shame BMA. It's a complete scandal. More work for less money. Again.
As a GP partner if you’ve opted out of the pension scheme will you be given this extra 6% as cash?
