i wonder if doctors inany other country sign all these prescriptions witout reviewing the patient as we do here. when I worked in canaada patients came in for prescriptions so you would be paid. you might give a year of it if thas how long before next review or a month depending but never signing dozends of scripts of patients you may never have met as we do here. whay do we do this
good for them . on xmas day I wouldn't work even for that to be honest though but I have young kids
Who could agree to this?! but then ive thought that about the GMC contract since i spent 6 months as a new partner then pulled out once i spelled the coffee before joining. The majority of sheeple will just throw themselves of the cliff and keep on moaning as we Brits tend to do.
Jesus this sounds rubbish
why does everyone have such slow internet. dial up? is that a joke?
Who's paying £240 an hour to GPs? Private patients?

I do think that the posh are getting posher and the dross are getting drossier. It's the hardworking middle getting shafted paying for the indulgent lifestyles of both.
Good comment whoam. So true.
We need people who will stop saying how hi when told to jump. People who demand to be treated as professionals and not low rent protocol monkeys
wow. breaking tablets in half. i wonder how much they got paid to come up with that ha ha. wonder if theyll think of taking 2 together as well
LOL. im voting monster raver
i think visits are an important part of healthcare and GP but people need to stop caving in a visiting those who are not bed bound. if they can get to the front door they can get in a taxi. Better to get rid of all the qof ccg pcn beaurocrasy
i think home visits are good if apropriate but i pretty much never do any in the afternoon. if they call in then its for the next day. other people phoning for an ammointment have to wait a week why do home visits all have to be done the same day. if it cant wait til tomorrow then by definition they need to be in hospital surely? as said above emergency care is not GP work
payment by activity is a pain in the arse of course doing the billing. its a shame the govenment cant just be fair about things and when asking more work to be done offer fair remuneration for it as said 150 to 400 pounds per assessment is the current fee as its probably quite time consuming.
oh Dear. DO we need any more evidence that payment per activity or fee for service is the only way forward. The work dump due to capitation knows no bounds. A mixed model between capitaion and payment per activity perhaps
What's this rubbish about it costing more to charge. It costs nothing. £10 please and thank you very much. End of. We charge people for letters etc and it costs nothing just take the money
Just talk to the patient. Many mildly abnormal results just need reassurance.privare med takes a lot of worried well away and the majority dont then come to us. It's a non issue
More time in hospital. Agree that's where u learn about all the things your ruling out in GP but rarely seeing. Why not 3 in specialties 2 in GP. Doing psych derm paeds gynae general medicine maybe ENT or palliative med then GP
I thought very funny.
some of the comments mention things not in the piece. Are they being added to the wrong article?
I think everyone should pay the same percentage of pension TBH not sure whey lower rate if earn less
does that mean you lose tax deductibility of pension contributions as well as you are falsely judged to be over the threshold of tapered earnings of 150k
Dont think theres a cheap market in Bournemouth. Defo cheaper to get frozen chickennneggw5s n chips from Iceland. I guess chips are vegetarian food tho
