Sounds like very useful tool in GP. Thanks for that
The system is choking on red tape and lack of joined up thinking. This is just one example. I am pulling out of minor surgery as too much red tape and lack of funding/ time. MBchB working in a surgery with good clinical governance should be enough to allow implants, IUDs, minor ops etc.
Pharmacist needs to give nearest alternative. We are told that they are highly trained and under used so please let them prove it here.
has something been rushed and perhaps not properly thought through?
Strong leader needed to explain to public that 10 mins unsafe and we are switching to 15 mins ASAP with capped numbers. Rest advised to attend A+ E. The hell with public opinion.
Totally agree. A local peer review system led by LMC/CCG with some lay input would be fine.
no surprise. I suspect that once the boomer generation is gone the stats will look much worse. Working longer to pension age etc.
it does not take a specialist to start it, but certainly to stop it.
thank you. Should not be your job.
the only way to get people off this stuff is with intensive input and even admission a bit like crisis team input. This will cost loads but it is worth it. AS GPs we know what needs to be done but have no time/resource to do it. Of course if we see more private medicine, the issue will get worse.
Remember osbornes advice to Hancock. When trying to make a change ignore the noise and just do it. Looks like he's following it to the letter.
good luck to them. just look to OOH to see how much this will cost.
excellent work. Only shame that media has to do it.
Devil in detail but sounds very promising
let him run open surgeries from 0800 to 1830 5 days a week and find ?why can"t we get anybody to be a MP anymore?
If there is to be competition there needs to be a level playing field, ie we need to be able to offer private vaccines same as pharmacy
it is actually, for once, an argument against continuity/partnership. WE can and do become complacent. 111 etc with their torturous pathways would pick up the red flags and send ambulance. Of course there will be great delay because they have sent 1000 other ambulances that day,
I find it amazing that such a scheme can be announced prior to be it being fully thought through/ costed. It is little wonder we are in such a mess with Brexit.
I did not realise that we could house a private GP provider in house and encourage patients to use that.
I hope he realises how vital this issue is. One of the only things keeping me in partnership is this idea of state backed indemnity. If it turns out to be BS ...
