A whole cadre of GPs hiding from patients in soul less rooms promulgating a bizarre dystopia. Sadly a lot of these ideas were put forward by our own colleagues.
Harry -- I shake your hand spot on
A brave article, I love the correction factor!
Sorry that bunch are a bit too far right for me, what with institutional anti-semitism and the aim of an all powerful superstate. To much resonance with Germany in the 30s. I'll give that lot of no hopers miss and I think you should. Save yourself!
A massive PFI that will leach the funds out of the local health economy for years to come.
I imagine the GMC thought your Name sounded like you may not be caucasian, having reflected on their treatment of Baba Garba they decided to reduce the risk by not admitting you!
A load of mental health patients with no backup
Finish you career unable to take blood read Xrays ECGs or risks.
Whats not to like!
We need longer appointments to deal with health full stop. More appointments means longer waits. So the answer is to regulate demand. The only thing that would regulate demand is a charge.
Christopher Ho 10:17 Spot on. We won't get 5k new GPs we need to reduce demand.. the only way ios to charge for access even a small amount. Fols will need to choose -- latest phone or access.
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.
