importance of being sincere
Eamonn-excellent helpful article, am in London and am tempted, have you got any contact details you happy to share please? cheers
when will we actually smell the coffee, the business of health government is to appease the masses and aid "public confidence in the NHs" and hence votes, not the workers!
err guys, many of us voted for this, right? harken back to 12/12/2019....
meanwhile us cardigans wearing colleagues are happy to be paid for all this stress at less than a plumber take home rate per hour!
madness, we do get what we dont complain about chaps!
Likewise, the GMC has asked government to remove legislation that asks them to investigate every complaint that comes their way rather engage local resolutions , but the gov wont change it. So yet again GMC cant do much!
anon2016-spot on, but will they listen, would some of US even listen, i shudder to say no!
totally agree, but referral management autobots will slap our wrists for over referral...
I cant believe you guys being doing this for free,unchallenged
We do get what we deserve i guess, sadly!
you guys above speak too much common sense! will fall on deaf ears!
calling a spade a spade, we should we ashamed with ourselves they way she is still continues to be treated and "managed" by the system....could be anyone of us...
dont worry guys, after Brexit we will get £5,000,000 a week for the NHS.
All will be well, just be patient when you voted last time...
what we should ask is how as a profession we have lost our self respect to be treated like this!
the Politicians arent stupid, they have to balance the books. They know that better health care costs money, but they haven't the money.
So here we are, its us who dont push back....the patients expect a lot because we arent maent to temper their expectations, otherwise NHS England/GMC would be after us. go figure.....
meanwhile eltlets not complain about our rate of pay less than an OOH plumber.
GEN-Prexit- 100% spot on
With respect many here have the wrong end of the stick, 15 minutes in EHS allows one to both enjoy medicine, take a better history/listen better,etc!
As it should be.
So yes extended hours deserve the rate they get, and perhaps more, but its the partners who then should lobby for better pay!
consider this,plumber rate OOH £100/hr
Alas, sometimes i despair for the fraternity when you cant see the woods for the trees! Do you think one may suffer from the Stockholm syndrome?
common guys, whats wrong with yous?
Whey are we fighting with our respected fellow colleagues.
is it, should it, be any surprise when all this was foreseeable by the government own admissions of austerity cuts in the public sector and in the NHS as we already know.
Also, we have one of the the lowest,if not the lowest,level of GDP contribution to heath amongst most European industrialized nations
Really, do we need reminding of this!
but we knew all this for at least 10 years!.
Nothing changes...i guess
i dont see why we are complaining about pay, we should celebrate that we take home less than a plumber per hour and also are subject to uber regulation, multiple jeopardy, should we make mistakes which in this job is common not least because we deal with uncertainty!
meanwhile, i have 10 minutes to consult....and write it all up properly as per GMC guidelines... how high shall i jump Sir?
I suspect most of us would agree with you, and what you've written.
