dont think it will be that manageable. with physios and nurses seeing all the simpler cases 15 mins will still be too short to see mental health and genuinely ill people in. as above psych 45 mins in Oz
working in surgeries with recruitment problems i find that 90% of my patients are mental health some days usually personality disorders with shit life syndrome substance abuse fibromyalgia and usually have a physical problem to ask about as well so take well over 20mins if not over 30.
Its right that GPs see the tricky pateints with multiple probs but we really do need at least 15 mins or not longer and max 12 consults per session as will be over 4 hours

Beaker has hit the nail on the head. women also more likely part time or less time than men
long haul that is
pilots do one flight per week
1. It's not the public purse its personal contributions particularly for GPs.
2. If GPs will lose pension if convicted then surely this should apply to everyone with a pension state private or otherwis. and what if you dont have a pension should u get additional punishment to make up for it?
3. Punishment of a crime should be up to the court only.
This actually beggars belief. Are they actually serious?
I don't think anyones pensin should be annualised it should be based on annual earnings or whats the point of having tiers related to annual earnings if one person pays more pension than another while earing the same amount just because they did the work in one paret of the year with a break elsewhere.
good to know cephalexin can be used instead of cipro for upper UTI. I still always use cipro. is one preferable to the other regarding efficacy vs risks?
cannabis it is then. oh or cbt
just let people close their lists when they feel full. simples
remove the need to register unlimited numbers of patients ie can close lists when feel full, get rid of all the beaurocrasy like QOF les des CQC and change funding model to pay reasonable amount per consultation rather than per patient then partnership model will be attractive.
how about just let each GP decide how many patients they can handle or want. Many GPs now want to close their lists as too busy and aren't allowed. forcing those that are coping to stop accepting patients isn't good for them or patients. Some demographics are more work so you wouldn't want as many patients elderly versus lots of students. Stop micromanaging and removing autonomy. Its pretty easy really.

race to the bottom. as most young people are unemplyed or working in McDonalds with a degree then GP aint so bad after all
patient summaries? WTAF
ok in most instances but well what if you don't want to give a generic or you want to prescribe a certain generic the patient got on better with. the bioavailability of drugs made by different companies and so the side effects and benefits does vary. not necessariuly that the generic is worse just different. is simplistic to say they are identical and if patients get side effects with one brand I think that is valid not just some people whingeing and being difficult. I don't want other people changing my prescriptions.
you could add as in other countries no substitutions if you particularly want to give a brand.
How about we change this stupid situation where you only make money from patients who never come and as the article says the non profitable patients need the most care.
Isnt this nuts?
If a patient is seen then a payment should be received. Simples problem fixed
WOW. Normal retirement age until very recently
I would think not employing female doctors going foreward would be sexual discrimination these days.
