further evidence of the gulf between the front line and the long lunch brigade.
Chosen his words very carefully. It has gone beyond that . Fact that there is no resignation speaks louder.
Round here the pendulum has swung in the opposite direction. Trying to think of a suitable headline for that.
great to see some positive actions here.
if they can see 40 odd patients, countless calls etc then I happy for anyone to be partner.
yes we know. Tell the mass media and the charities. They don"t.
so basically the contract is unsafe.
I welcome this. Society cannot have it both ways. If we are to be locked up for error or even no error then we must have time to think about what we are doing.
I have had a couple of patients come to the emergency surgery after being "e-mailed antibiotics" because of flu illness. The patients were very pleased. Of course the ABs were totally unneeded. Asked how the doctor examined the patient I was told "he told me to feel my own pulse".
lets hear the standard DOH comments
please introduce a national formulary rather than debating each medicine in turn eg coeliac at present.
My friend is a vet. He charges £5.00 to make out 1 prescription.
all part of the grand plan. Faced with long waits baby boomers head to the bank. Consultants are happy re. perverse incentive. . Gradual privatisation of elective services by stealth.
Agree. Look at any random surgery website and at the top you find a couple of males in their 50s (FT) running the show. Beneath are a shower of part timers with special interest in appraisals etc. 3 of these needed for one of the former.
Then look at your surgery. Everyone is aged 72. They are all going to get ill in the next 15 years and expect top class home treatment. It is going to get worse before better.
I am sometimes told to stop complaining and come up with some solutions , ok 1) allow all gps to dispense 2) restore seniority 3) allow us to see private patient s if they want it 4) replace appraisal etc with local accountibility.
Strong leadership is required not endless reviews with ambiguous outcomes and fine words
each winter is bad so call for scrapping it next year now.
Agree with above. Having read through the case it seems that the patient was correctly diagnosed, appropriate treatment was started. Some system errors then came into play. Where is the gross negligence here?
he is up to something but I don"t know what.
HBG must have some guts. I would have thrown the towel in long ago and said goodbye to this whole stinking mess.
