  • GPs need to start prescribing lifestyle medicine

    I hugely admire Clare Gerada but I am afraid the disadvantaged residents I work alongside cannot tolerate any more 'lifestyle-ism' We need to start talking about a more social model of medicine - At New NHS Alliance we call it 'health creation' see http://www.nhsalliance.org/mediacentre/new-nhs-alliance-announces-mission-address-health-inequalities/

  • GPs vote to remain independent contractors

    I'm afraid the current contractual model has been shown not to be very good for the development of general practice nursing. The recent RCGP Survey showed variation in training and a massively aging workforce. It isn't just about GPs you know!
