Can we just make life easy? Abolish capitation payment and pay doctors per service as done in some other countries.
RCGP planning a new e-learning course on gender variance. RCGP has sold itself to the highest....how much is another pressure group paying for this?
I agree with Prashant @7:04. I left in May for another country and have not looked back. The last 5 months have been bliss, even my greying hairs are turning black again!
The evidence said investigations can take up to three years, during which time ‘the doctor affected is under a great deal of stress and a NHS system that is already strained may be denied the services of that particular doctor’.
These halfwits in the BMA think their main responsibility is to be guardians of the NHS; what is the DHSC for. Do they understand doctors in private healthcare can be charged for manslaughter too.
I just wonder how many doctors still pay their subs to keep the BMA going or is it now being subsidised by NHS. With this group of ignorant colleagues, so-called 'top or leading doctors', the profession needs no enemies.
Folks...don't come here! Have you heard of the Windrush generation? You will just be used and dumped.
Good news for the internet-savvy worried well youngsters living within M25, I wonder how things will fare for the very elderly folks with complex morbidity who really need to see a GP.
Babylon feels emboldened to make this claim after the honourable chair of RCGP gave commendations.
It is clear the powers that be have decided AI is the way to go. Jeremy Hunt once aid doctors (I think he means GPs) will so be obsolete as AI will take over and this is being played out now.
This won't happen to the Tory members because they are wealthy, can buy their care and investments for children to keep these offspring free enough to look after them. Basically, they are detached from the world of reality of many patients we see.
Can we also have a right to sue so-called 'expert witnesses' or report them to GMC. Many of these clinicians fail to understand that no matter how much they have been paid by patients or their lawyers, their first responsibility is an impartial opinion to the courts.
Is this a report to help revive CCGs or a pretext for the goverment to disband CCGs and bring in ACOs?
I don't understand....four studies seem to point out the needlessness and pitfalls of econsultation but NHSE ignores this and gives us anecdotal evidence from one doctor that this is a magical solution appointment issues.
It looks like the die has been cast since the government decided on this implementation and we may well cry to heavens but nothing will change.
With data to be shared with social care welcome to a pool of 'practitioners' ticking of the emails as it happens in customer service centres.
I wish I was smart enough to invent a 'mandatory training'! There is now a big industry minting money on this - frankly, I don't see any improvement this brings.
What did Prof. Gerada achieve in her stint as RCGP chair?
It's hard to see anything sensible coming from this committee except to whitewash GMC.
I agree with @Vinci Ho - the government needs us more than we need it. The problem is doctors have become lily-livered and being led by some spineless, gong-seeking leaders.
If all doctors can just observe daily 12-hour action for 3 consecutive days - watch how people will toss the government out.....with GMC, NHSE et all. The Daily Mail won't even be able to come to rescue.
Can anybody explain why GPs still pay the bulk of money these MDOs receive?
The answer from the MDDUS medical adviser is sickening. Another failed clinician probably who has now coccooned himself safely from the coalface! We are not community SHOs - period!
85 GPs recruited over 2 years! Well this sounds like net increase of zero to me. I am counting GPs I know that have retired, emigrated, gone to pharma and other sectors or simply cut their sessions drastically and I am close to 85 and still counting.
By the way, last week I also joined the exodus to North America after 15 years of the NHS grind.
@GP UK 8:49pm.
I am an overseas dr who has worked x15yrs in the UK. The environment has become so toxic and that is why I left just a week ago. Goodluck to all - not just overseas dr but also to home bred!
RCGP is bad news. Just a look at what has happened with MRCGP is enough to predict how this will end up. If you are GPwSI, this is time to start thinking if this is worth it.
I am a overseas trained doctor and was a BMA member for only 1 year out of the 15 I have been here. If it is so clear that the BMA top echelon is useless and comprises just self-serving colleagues who are out to use the profession and status to get all they can, why then do frontline doctors continue to pay for membership. Stop paying and let the organisation go into oblivion!
The other option is the BMA is the equivalent of a labour union, can we not just set up an alternative body?
Agree with Tony @10:01
