Well said. It is part of the culture of needing to be " seen to do something" . A simple system of occasional significant event bulletins would be good enough without disrupting our daily lives .
Cart before horse
this will get worse as continuity breaks down.
years ago I would agree, indeed used to suggest that a man be discharged and I am happy to watch the bloods. Not now. Been hammered too much. Gloves are off. Can"t expect good will in current climate.
this has gone on locally for years. As I always point out, the policy basically is that " you don"t get it unless you shout out loud." An NHS-wide list of drugs that can and cannot be prescribed needs to be drawn up and agreed by politicians or maybe NICE.
exactly right 1.54. There is not a cat in hell chance of reversing this trend without fundamental change.
may lead to increased admissions. Often there is little choice based on culture results. Only other option is admit for IV.
if this does not do what promised then prepare for further exodus.
sounds like nice little job to get me out of the heat
Wonderful thank you
Well said. Look on system 1. The notes are now a mess with " I gained verbal consent to enter the premises" type entries. Searching in vain for the 2 lines from the GP that makes sense of the situation.
Think there is some merit in it but care needed as Consultants will love to get GPs to do their admin work etc. please just pop and see your GP and get pee dipped or your BP checked or quickly look in the back of your eyes etc.and forward the results on to my secretary. Will be fully costed from the secondary care point of view but of course not from primary care.
surely they know enough to be doing this anyway
anything that bridges the gap will save money . Esp. would be true of psychiatry. How is the GPs time to use it paid I wonder.
apparently austerity is over so lets some evidence of this on GP front line
usually the diagnosis is wrong and we are treating PD etc with pharma. and wonder why it not work.
assume this was not sponsored by pharma.
the best hope is from this GP who is trying to change rules regarding charging for private services. Shame none of the large organisations thought of this.
OK, as long as the psychiatrists will take the " I"ve had my ketamine stolen etc." calls.
