David I completely agree. Thank god for GPs with real word experience and no cardigan
Kevin I think they are called sexually shared infections now. More friendly and less demeaning. You cant give anyone as dose nor can you get a dose -- you share it. The prof shared hos dose with his wife.
As ever what NICE miss out is the key rule of antibiotic prescribing which is that most people get unnecessary antibiotice except me and my family.
Moved to a party that doesn't respct democracy.
Didn't go for another election so she doesn't have decency.
Says it all really -- classic remainiac.
...And in other news Polar Bears actually do s*** in the snow. Who funds this stuff?
It's 3 weeks to see a GP keep it that way if its not settled by then -- bingo
Its was sounding credible till the RCGP letters came up. Who knows when the RCGP says something is credible its best to shuffle off the other way.
I suppose the Asian chap had it coming as he walked into the GMC office-- "ah please join the suspension queue direct sir.. just line up behind Bawa"
Stelvio -- bob on. We can;t whine about ever increasingly workload and decreasing workforce in a completely free system with no penalty or responsibility for misuse. Sadly the medicap profession have convinced themselves the NHS is a world leader and great value for money. How's it working out then?
Don't tell me: No one explained anything, no one took my requests for cannabis seriously, no one explained anything when they tried to stop my citalopram, diazepam, tramadol and viagra.
Andrew, it's worrying you say you surveyed the RCGP membership and online access to advice about exercise and activity was their biggest concern. I suspect that if I surveyed the non rcgp members who are spedning more time seeing patients I suspect that won't be anywhere near the top of the list given the plethora of information on t'internet.
When you launch a toolkit you do infact introduce a hurdle that would put people off, luckily I'm not a member but this is one more RCGP initiative that will at best do very little and at most stand in the way. Theres a waiting time for 2 months for coronary revascularisation surgery, and 4 weeks to see a GP, it's a bit tough to see money being spent on this.
Agreed it is about to go... BoJo said he would sort the 3 week wait to see a GP by investing in new hospital departments.
Agreed Hawkeye, an element of privastisation is the key
Nope won't work unless the Pharmacists are in GP, in a shop they will revert to type. There is a fundemental inducement to prescribe linked to profits.

Well put. Don't worry about the GMC unless you have a non estuary accent and type 4 skin.
Sadly all that your speak of was created by our own colleagues. To frightened to see patients but happy to make or hell for others.
Eh? A lot of long words there.
If they understand it who cares?
Somehow I don't think the scandals were related to the use of stool and urine as words.
With support frpom Arvind Madame and the RCGP cabal, GPs don't have a chance. I honetly think Julia Hartley Brewer would do a better job
They borrow your watch to tell you the time. They failed abysmally with PCGs, PCTs, CCGs. Some mug seriously thinks paying some of these sharks £2500 will sort their networks. The awakening will be rude but drawn out.
I am an international doctor.
In my internbational opinion the RCGP are a bunch of self serving racists (anyone recall the furore over the low pass rates of anyone who wasn't the right skin shade?).
Other than serving to over complicatr training, presiding over a catastrophic decline in numbers of GPs and morale what do they acheive. I've been to one or two of the conferences in the past -- I mean it was an excuse to get out of work, the only interesting bits were the keynote speech and the stalls. The rest was the usual rubbish. Honestly didnt affect my practice. Disband the whole lot and put primary care under the Rollege of Physicians who franly have more kudos and a clue.
