Of course this is nonsense.
However the question that needs asking is will the pharmacist keep medical records and have indemnity personally...or will all the risk be siphoned up to the supervising GP.
It is all self justifying nonsense of course. There is no reproducible validity to a CQC inspection.
It is nothing to do with patient care. It is a quango trying to justify their existence. However politically they were set up to control primary care and is part of the privatisation agenda. It is much easier for a large private company to pass CQC than a small GP practice.
"Health secretary Matt Hancock has also said he will consider increasing the GP workforce by an extra 5,000 in the upcoming NHS workforce plan."
Didn't someone else promise that if I remember.
So are they going to keep notes and be liable medicolegally for their decisions. It must be high risk stuff.
This will not help in any way and increase workload. More GP's are needed.
It is no within our skillset to diagnose or treat these incidentaloma. I refer everything in the spirit of reducing risk.
It is good for them to be regulated. Who regulates ANP's however.
Is this retrospective. How do you then unpick it, including annual allowance tax charges etc.. An unholy mess.
All those little medication advice slips we shred. We have been inundated with them but I understand the pharmacist gets paid for doing them.
Will it be retrospective..
Ha ha ha ha ha ha.
Nonsense. Appraisal is useless and ridiculous. Every GP really knows that don’t they
...and we need a think tank to tell us that..seems pretty obvious to me.
Absolutely spot on. We all must have seen this. However only fellow doctors understand.
I know a returner who took nearly a year to get on the list. It exactly as the article describes, multiple email addresses, nobody answering.
What a foolish idea.
Life is better if you ignore this stuff. Never look at it. Also don't do social media. You have more time.
NHS England is a infested with self interest, troughers and anti GP sentiment. We need root and branch reform and proper resourcing of primary care, and a lot of the NHS problems will improve.
The CQC harm patient care. I am sure they will be disbanded or rebranded because the word is getting out. They are part of the problem, not the solution.
I wonder if those inspectors can be directly held accountable for harm from their actions.
This assumes that the CQC are competent? Which is a bit of a stretch because we all know they are not very good.
The problem in this country is that when a bad thing happens the authorities often feel duty bound to blame. That blame is often levelled at the GP.
Reality is often much more complex.
This is pretty extreme. I have just cancelled my membership because of the intolerant views of the RCGP..
