"The trust said the app will help improve information-sharing, reduce the need for hospital trips"
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. Where do they get these naive managers from. It will obviously have the opposite effect.
This reeks of idiotic management ideas. A real facepalm moment.
What doctor in the real world has time to watch the previous doctors consultation!
I would bounce the patients straight back in to hospital as a failed discharge and report it as a SEA
I actually make all referrals urgent now. It is more of a self preservation mechanism. Looking at a lot of complaints it often is down to “the GP only referred me routinely”
I would be a bit careful as a doctor doing video consultations on patients you don’t know. Seems a bit risky.
The CQC is a quango which is hell bent on harming patients. Here they go again.
Well that is a surprise.
This is NOT for GP's.
Only for hospital consultants. Pulse is a GP magazine. Perhaps you need to understand this.
“As a regulator, we will use all our influence and powers to support doctors and medical students.”
Ha Ha Ha. I love a bit of irony.
There is one thing being "expected to do this". I won't be doing anything unless there is a formal contract and payment attached.
Faceless clinicians or admin cancel or delay the referrals, but who is left carrying the medicolegal risk. The only identifiable clinician is the GP, until they are seen in clinic
“Leading an integrated approach to care across Swindon is central to our long-term strategy and providing GP services, alongside our hospital and community services,“
Blah blah blah.Management speak
I wonder if medico legal consequences could arise for the CQC inspectors if any patient comes to har from this action.
Hold on a minute. We are assuming the CQC ratings are valid. In reality they are an incoherent amateur mess of a quango who ratings bear no correlation with quality. It is a bit random.
They are best ignored as much as possible
If somebody tells you they are a critical friend....run for the hills. I would consider myself a critical foe of the CQC.
I wonder if the BMA could take the CQC to court for breaching the human rights act in their dealing with doctors ?
Just ludicrous comments.
This is ridiculous nonsense.. At best your are hopelessly naive.
The CQC should be disbanded. It is just a self serving quango.
I hardly ever used to call 999. You have to now because otherwise the patient will be waiting for 6 hours in your surgery.
