I think it would be better on reflection if they just went away quietly.
There is nothing controversial about Julia Hartley Brewer. She seems a good no nonsense sensible sort to me.
This is silly. I would much rather that they banned that nice but clueless Matt Hancock.
The usual NHS England none of extra support in General Practice.
What they don't get is that for every extra allied health professional = more work for the GP because they can't take responsibility. Therefore risk and workload is siphoned to the GP.
NHS England also say that they are adding lots of support staff to GP surgeries.
In my experience Pharmacists, Nurse practitioners, Paramedics etc add to the GP workload and increase their medico legal risk.
I have a rule that if I am dumped on I will always reciprocate and ask them to do something back Can't be too careful..and possibly over time makes people think twice.
Idiotic ivory tower thinking totally divorced from the realities of the modern workplace.
I think we all need to flag the bad medical practice we see sometimes from online services..maybe at GMC level...I think we all have examples of this...
It is weird isn't it that those that are willing to go private probably get the worst service.. who are going to fill these shifts.
Total politicians answers. He didnt answer any question
Yawn...I feel the best way for your mental health is to ignore these dictats..bin it...dont waste any headspace on it. Just be a doctor and do what is clinically indicated.
It's a gimmick. The first few doctors that get struck off for the inevitable errors will cause indemnity to rise. Patients will realise the grass isn't greener when they use it and come back.
I really fear for any GP doing this. I hope they are up to date with their insurance because any private company wont help when the complaints/significant incidents occur.
I have no confidence in the GMC.
I wonder if the government gave them 250k to do this. Otherwise how can any sensible CCG see this as an outrageous waste of money
Useless quango trying to justify its existence. We see what happens if any doctors makes any mistake, most people are just being more risk averse and careful. I dont blame them.
If they are going to reject referrals we need a named clinician and complaint number to give to the patient. These referral are often rejected anonymously.
I always write back and say for the medical legal document could I have a name of the person who rejected it.
Need to have GMS as LLP. That would save it.
There appears to be no confidentiality at all in community pharmacy. There doesn't seem to be even the concept of it.
Walk in centre were always massively over funded however getting GP's to do extended hours is another matter. I dont want to do them.
