If it is a national scandal, BMA, then why aren't you raising its profile, getting it into the nationals and asking for an inquiry? We should not have to risk our health when we go to work. Do better BMA, you are weak and pathetic.
ObiOne, the reason why they ask GPs to do it, is because our time is free. NHSE has all you can eat general practice. Only until we charge per consultation like our hospital colleagues will this nonsense stop.
Unless we r resourced to do this properly,the answer is no. We are unable as we are too busy already batting off the other requests from numerous clinics expecting us to be their house officer. Once the referral is done it's the hospital responsibility. Any extra tests are therefore their responsibility to organise and interpret.
I dont think our PPE is proven to stop us catching covid. So does it count as PPE.
It was like this before covid
I really think primary care have been sidelined with regards to the governments covid response and we have been forgotten about as frontline workers. We need to our leaders to do much more to raise our profile. We too are exhausted. We too need help and support and extra resources to deal with the new way of working.
Finally some sense. They wont do it as CQC will then have nothing to do for a year and will have to sack themselves
I think we didnt have any confidence before covid in this government. I dont know how they are still in power
This is pretty much hit the nail on the head. Multiple organisations giving conflicting advice and trying to micro manage general practice. I hoped covid was due to put a stop to this. It seems its made it worse
We always forgotten and this is an example of that unsure how ENT will work with patients wearing face masks
Can we have a definition of what PPE is by DHSC? As I dont count the surgical masks weve been given as PPE. Neither does the WHO. Does that mean we should self isolate if a patient later tests positive?
Wasnt this the previous way of doing it? I remember being fleeced nearly £2K for the CSA. Still leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. No idea why it had to be done in Central London. Really the BMA should demand a breakdown of costs and value of money for trainees.
Group video consultations but please keep the consultation tailored to each patients need. I'm really growing tired of this.
I wish the BMA would move away from the teachers battle and do what they are paid to do and sort this mess out.
Will NHS staff still be paid if we have to be off for two weeks?
Can we forget about appraisals this year?
Yep. Appraisal must be cancelled this year. Sort this GPC
Another study which will be ignored
It's a very clever system. Strip practices of funding, and then practices try to push back. Send in an inspector to hit them with a big stick and tell them all they should be doing more for less. When is the BMA going to act?
