How will you be freeing up more appointments when theres no one to work? Its beyond belief sometimes.
Isn't this what NHSE wants? Smaller practices to be swallowed up by bigger ones
We should be charging the CCG for the extra time it takes to fill in these forms. I never agreed to do this extra work for free. Then this nonsense will stop. We need to move away from notion that GP time is free and unlimited
If you want clinical triage. You need to pay for it. With professionals. Like everything in life.
Time to become a management consultant
And do we see our pay or conditions improve due to our hard work?
Great saved again. Just like Hunts 5000 GPs he promised in 2015. It's a shame they're never in the job long enough to see it through and gullible journalists dont hold them to account
Until there is a serious rethink and spending on GP. This will become a more common occurrence over the next 5 years. And yet the college and BMA do little.
End Game, has pretty much hit the nail on the head. Typical British medical trying to portray us in a bad light, yet again. When really we are doing well. People like their GP. There just aren't enough of them.
No App will change this but it will make some people very rich indeed for very little work.
Carrot and stick. This wont fool anyone
Really this should be nearer 100%. There arent any GPs I know who want to go until they retire if they had a choice
I really don't think they understand just how much extra work they get for free out of the partnership model. If we all go salaried I think itll be a real shock for them. Bring it on. We'll all go salaried. Same pay scale as hospital consultants and push back all extra unfunded work.
Agree with locum x.
I think this just goes to show who the BMA are really working for
I agree with the report. Ticking as many boxes on the pathology form is never good medicine. However, I feel this is common practice as when things go wrong we are often asked 'why didn't we do X test'. And this is why so many of us now order unnecessary tests. Did the study conclude why GPs do this? Thats what we need next and real change in how we go after doctors when things are 'missed'
Great. So we are held to account when we don't follow guidelines. And now criticised when we do follow guidelines.
I think he needs to go now. It's the only way trust will be restored.
The government doesn't care. We have to take matters into our own hands. When will the BME realise this?
I'm worried about PCNs and where this may lead general practice. My fear is eventually we will be forced to take back OOH work and provide cover on a rota basis for no extra money. Instead of using market forces to fill OOH post as we do now. I hope I'm proved wrong
It certainly doesn't feel like self regulation any more
