If you want to stick at this long term you cant do any more than 6 clinical sessions a week or you'll burn out. That's why so many are 'part time'. They're just trying to protect them selves as the job has become impossible. This is our problem and no one will fix this for us. We have to force the governments hand or things will continue to deteriorate.
I'm sure the college will issue some more colouring books and fund a few resilience courses to help ease this problem. Clearly it's not the colleges fault we face this
And yet an MP can still go to prison and claim her MP salary. Says a lot about the clowns running this country. Absolute disgrace all of them.
And I hope the money also.
I'm sure the college won't hesitate to pay this money back.
Obvious question here - who gets sued when the cancer is missed? The GP for 'not taking a good enough photo' or the hospital for not seeing the patient? Should we not trial this system first? Is there a good evidence base a dermatologist can screen using photos?
The bigger issue here is not planning. It's how do we provide medical cover to nursing and resident homes. Currently its dumped on general practice but this causes problems. And will only get worse as the population is set to age. We need a long term solution to something which affects every GP in the country
Does this just mean we can't move from MDU to another provider as if we do we will be stung with run off cover? Feels like we are now over a barrel and can no longer shop around for cheaper cover.
They should be made to do all follow up including scans and other test they deem necessary.
And this is why there is no future in general practice. Nothing will change. I still work way beyond my core hours and see many extra patients, process many extra tasks and my day is still 12 hours long. Nonsense.
The government has caused it. I'm not going to fix it. So NO!
We need to work to reduce demand. Not increase capacity. Stop health scare stories in media and constant 'checking' of symptoms
People don't want 7 day access. They just want to be able to see a GP. If we're not careful we wont even have this soon.
I would do an extra session a week I never had to do revalidation. It would solve the workforce issue overnight if we could get rid of it
Does anyone know what these 'seven service specifications' are going to be?
I think this is what frustrates me the most about politicians. They really are too stupid to see its their fault and their responsibility to fix the problem of lack of GP availability. What an idiot
The only way there can be a future in general practice is to move away from our model of all you can eat general practice. Like the dentists, and consultants contracts. We need to be paid for the work we do. Our leaders must get this sorted.
Classic case of PHE passing the buck. No!
Agree with above. This shouldn't be our work. We have enough to do.
Was there anything wrong with the old partnership system? I don't think there is. No one wants to do the job any more, and no one wants to financially commit when the government doesn't support us. That's what's broken. Not the current model.
