Very well done to these doctors. Why does BMA not fund this? Great to see positive action. Ideally this would not be needed I agree but conditions are not ideal. DDA please do the same and allow GPs to dispense to all. Why does a conservative government oppose this? One suspects that they secretly agree but want to be seen to oppose it.
basically all meds management boils down to - if you shout loud enough then you get it.
don"t worry. They can get them from an app.
Agree. These consults are always difficult with the patients believing in their phone more than the doctor and usually leave feeling short changed and better post a bad review on trip adviser.
"paid so much only work part time". I wonder how many part time bankers and CEOs there are ?
Anyone told SOS?
Any hospital docs out there who can confirm what you pay?
ridiculous to suggest that people are being pigeon holed into a certain specialty before graduating. The proper thing is to make those areas more popular then then the problem will sort itself.
I have no objection if it is an optional added extra to GMS with proper funding. What we cannot do it absorb it in addition to what we are doing already.
Could a GP please tell us how to safely manage common conditions eg headache/cough/abdo pain etc with no examination. Maybe it is possible , I am keen to learn.
why not allow an experienced Gp with knowledge of the patient to eyeball the patient and decide if statin will benefit. I consider that better than any risk score etc.
I think having the option of offering some private appts , like the consultant contract, would help. This would shift baby boomers out of the system and provide income to practices. Guess some docs would try to abuse it ( like the current Consultant system where they encourage long waiting lists)but we are out of options.
I am still uncertain where the major errors are. I cannot see anything that I and all other docs have not been mixed up in. Some clarification on this would be good. I suspect that the only difference is that someone was pushing for prosecution.
A disgrace that crowd funding was needed to get this outcome which was obvious to anyone reading through the facts of the case.
This weeks study showing importance of continuity.
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??
