Also the age discrimination case seems to have gone quiet. This is obviously huge. Any update pulse.
Would be interesting to hear from the 20% who wish to sign.
Agree NHSE likely having a laugh coming up with crazy first document only to retract it and come back with what they actually want version slightly watered down
the number of people who actually need medical care is low. WHen we have snow here I only see 2/3 per day. When QOF/public health/reviews stuff is deferred we can manage easily.
Get the basics of the NHS right first before feeding the inverse care law like this. Creating ethical minefield.
Well said Dr kiekegaard but it is too easy to escape. Registrar tutorials, meetings to discuss how to deal with all the patients etc. etc. front line clinical decision makers need to be better rewarded than these low risk activities.
I agree with Obione, but suspect that the concern is that if money is given directly to practices partners will pocket it. Some would. I can see now the humps that we will have to jump through to prove that PCN is achieving it"s 7 areas, leads for each one reducing clinical time, pointless audits etc. Really need to allow the PCN to do its"s own thing.
we could do with some full time working class grafters on the front line.
Huge rise in GP numbers says DOH showing our policies are starting to bear fruit.
pay the money "on retirement". I wonder what that means. aged 67? Not trust this at all.
similar articles written re giving up night work. Think it will come. Not through choice but forced central underfunding. One more area that we lose control of and gradual erosion of current model over next 10-15 years. Costs will be astronomical and of great surprise to ministers.
Or at very least a national definition of what needs visiting and when to decline as once again when implementing the change we will come in for lots of abuse .
Any detail here? Welcome the focus on it but of course it is hot topic with voting boomers. Suspect once again not thought through re training capacity and doubt they will just increase GMS assuming that partners will just pocket it.
Excellent idea. We can't be in 2 places at once. This is one of biggest sources of stress.
there is some common sense somewhere then. BMA should be doing this work.
but if the coroners office ring us they expect a quick, verbal response. Time to turn the tables BMA/LMC.
pointless research. Compare anything eg cough, a nice relaxed 20 mins with a nurse vs a rushed 5-10 mins with a doc.
Also we need to design some forms. If paramedic wishes to d/w GP let them fill an online form and submit it via e-mail for consideration in a meeting. Same for coroners/hospital docs.
GPs are easy targets. What about the general public and 111 operators? Lets put them in the too difficult box. Strong leader needed to communicate how GP works and fact that we can"t sit around for hours waiting and neglect everyone else.
LMCs need to insist that this is commissioned as a locally enhanced service.
