The cavalry isn't coming
Run for the hills.
I listened to her speech which unfortunately confirmed how deluded and divorced from reality she has been
If GP at hand only see the worried well and self limiting illness why not just staff with PAs ?
Computer says you are going to be a bad doctor. We will now hound you to a self fulfilling prophecy
Ambitious to change appointments from 10 mins to 15 mins over 10 years?
When I started my consultant psychiatrist post I changed my outpatient follow up slots from 15 mins to 20 minutes within a week.
Given that GPs are self employed why can’t you just do it?
It absolutely is one rule for clinical staff and one rule for the rest.
It’s not only patient harm, it’s reputational harm to the service and harm of stress to GPs that have to sort it all out.
The world has officially gone mad.
I don’t think it is appropriate for a trainee to be doing either.
Or ‘GMC give themselves another role to justify their existence’
I suspect the person who came up with this rule has never been a doctor. HEE seems to be run by those straight out of university on no clinical courses.
This is what happens then a profession gives up its education and regulation to those outside the profession.
D in Vader. I totally agree.
Where is the money coming from?
Does the taxpayers allowance committee have any health professionals on it?
Will the automatons mean we can get rid of a health secretary?
I am indoctrinating my children from an early age not to do medicine, as it will make you feel undervalued and incompetent. That was a good job with good rewards but it isn’t now.
It appears to be working.
Both myself and husband are doctors. My father was a surgeon my husbands uncle a GP.
You would think it was rocket science. Dumb fxxxx
And how many will leave within 5 years?
IT has increased the amount of time taken to complete a first assessment by 50%. Go back to a word document dictated to a secretary and notes where I can easily flick through to find what I need and voila; 50% more doctor time at a stroke.
Even NHS IT staff say that IT needs to be started from scratch as it’s a mess.
It’s quite unbelievable.
I remember saying that the pension was the only thing worth working for in the public sector.
When your professional body says that you have been listened to but the profession itself does not feel that this is the case then there is a big problem.
