have they reduced admissions yet? at a presentation few years ago they said there were "early signs" of this. Anyone know?
be a man and stand by what you have said whether we like it or not. Would respect you more for that.
Column cheers me up no end.
no doubt the usual suspects will pile into surgery demanding I prescribe it as their mate gets it on NHS.
This man seems to talk nonsense.1) We need more GPs so give them no pay rise. 2)if the apps reach re wrong diagnosis we need to change the rules??
there are so many holes in this I don"t know where to start.
guess the device could be set up to directly call an ambulance or book into a GP appointment or send to A+E. Endless possibilities.
that is not bad given that public have direct access. I am sure similar stats can be found for most jobs. Trouble is , if you see a noctor, for 20 mins, then they can"t manage it, it goes to a GP for 10 mins ie total 30 mins. This is common and cancels out any gains.
Could PULSE take a look at such a practice and report the pros and cons?
a very unlikely course of action ?nothing better to study
great. The chap who saves our skin from time to time when someone is off sick is barred from working. We all know he is getting on a bit so we support and keep an eye on him. Thanks guys.
As I have said for 2 decades gps need access to the full range of diagnostics. At present we work in a U.S. Type litigation system but with 3rd world tools .
Also whoever is pushing this needs to come and do a few Monday am on-call sessions please and then think about it again.
someone at NHS England got CRP shares?
well done guys, some clear headed thinking.
SOunds like another D-dimers. That has at last been dropped locally after lots of expensive schemes and time wasted. Why can we not trust clinic judgement?
a simple method of agreeing reasonable increases in rent reimbursement in leasehold premises without the constant need to appeal and large gaps between rent and reimbursement opening up.
Once again the front line will have to design methods to be SEEN to be doing something whilst battling the day job as usual. ie keep a few "app" appointments but embargo the rest. The basic service must be stabilised before introducing gimmicks.
yet more inconvenient evidence.
guess it"s a bit like 111. Look where that got us.
