I've just relocated and replacing a retiring full time partner. However, I have changed my sessions from 8 to 6 as it's just simply not worth working those two extra sessions once you take into account tax, child benefit, nursery fees etc. I don't want to do this. But the government need to wake up to the fact the figures just don't add up unless they start to pay us a decent wage
It's quite simple. Stop treating us like s**t and pay us more.
The BMA should do the decent thing for its members and bring about a class action. This is a disgusting way to treat your workforce
If only they could do this on 8-8 access 7 days a week
6:13 has hit the nail on the head. Book all the patients in whom you need to do a virtual review on prior to prescribing tamiflu. Therefore reducing your capacity to see little Johnny with his sore throat of 9 minutes who then has to go to casualty. Then it'll be commissioned.
Just like adding an extra lane to a motorway it just gets immediately filled. So we have smart motorways. When will we address demand? You cannnot realistically increase access in one parliament without flogging your current workload even more. Does the NHS chief exec even know how long it takes to train a GP?
This is because the current government has made being a junior doctor so crap. The quickest way off hay contract is becoming a GP. They won't stay.
This just encourages more people to turn up without an appointment, inappropriately to A&E. What a short sighted idea. I didn't spend all these years training to stay as an A&E SHO
Still looks like a lot of work for a tiny uplift in pay - still a long way to go
Don't worry I'm sure the 50p per patient to cdo her increaed indemnity costs will more than cover this.
It's clear why partnerships are not being taken up. There is too much financial uncertainty. No one knows even if the practice will turn a profit in 5 years time so how do u expect young GPs with mortgages and young children to take on this risk? The older GPs should look at themselves to see how they allowed their profession to fall into this mess.
It's quite simply really. Most patients don't want it. There's no money for it. And no one wants to be a GP is office hours let alone on Sunday afternoon.
It was ill thought out by a government who is no longer in power and not in touch with healthcare or social care. I can see an argument for Saturday morning surgeries and that's it.
They need a good sueing and then they'll sort this out. Unacceptable and pointless we have to register with multiple lists.
52ppp is a joke considering it's going up £100s each year for GPs. All NHS indemnity should be reimbursed infull as per our hospital colleagues
Why are we celebrating a 1% pay rise? This is pathetic! My friends in the city get a 10% rise and 10% bonus each year. Come on GPC!
I'm not a social worker
In our day jobs we are doing the job of three GPs
Finally some sense!! But how does this work with your 7 day opening Mr Hunt? It doesn't. Oh dear. Full circle
Politicians could do a lot more for us but they don't
I've been a GP for 2.5 years and I'm dropping my sessions from 8 to 6. I've tried to work full time but it was too
much and all the extra money was just taken off me. I see no future in general practice. What an almighty disappointment
