Please can we have this motion carried at conference. The idea of a home visit is a very british thing which is not sustainable in the current model. Trying to squeeze them into our day in our lunch hours is not safe nor sustainable. This has to change.
We've already has this lie from the Tories. How about the 5000 by 2020. They should be held to account. It's disgusting how they can just kick the can down the road like this. What are we supposed to do for the next 4 years?
Nothing will change as GPs wont change. We will still do unfunded work in our own time and take on more and not support our colleagues.
There is always a role for home visits but asking GPs to do them during ther lunch isn't sustainable. We also need to tackle the issue of home visits for patients who are not housebound.
There are better ways of doing this.
Has it been a year already?
I dont think a GP referral should ever be rejected. By all means offer use advise if you feel the patient my benefit from a different service. But an outright refusal to see is simply dangerous.
Well done to the surgery involved. I've done loads of SAR recently at a significant. Hopefully this will reduce this burden
For the chair of the royal college to suggest a fix to this problem of just photographing consultant notes is an utter disgrace and 'utter frustration'. You're the chair of the college. Fix it! Pathetic.
I've always wondered if these online GP services provide antibiotics for things like chest infections, sore throats, and how they can safely and effectively do this by not being able to physically examine the patient.
Please can we have some originality from our RCGP chairs?
They should never be allowed to reject a referral just because a box isn't ticked on a form. It's terrible this has happened and I hope all hospital trusts learn from this and stop the obsession with referral form box ticking
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.
