We could all be outstanding with the same funding We get about £65 per patient per year I bet they get 4 times this figure or more !! Equitable . I don't think so !!
Hunt reminds me of "the artful Dodger"
Pigs might Fly. Just as improbable!!
Limiting GP consultations is just not possible We are there to help patients and just remember they pay our wages !!!.
As for 2/3 of patients do not need a doctor then why do they take 10 mins or more in appointment time ??
Food for thought isn,t it. !!
The death throes of the list system
Never see a GP you know
Lack of patient-centred care
It will be more expensive, less efficient and prone to getting more legal cases.
Good luck !!
I will be gone.(but still a consumer of services.) God help me.
It will bring the advent of Private GP, what an opportunity !
The day is fast approaching when we as GPs will join the Juniors and strike. Wherever GPs have withdrawn services governments have given in They only chase the next plebiscite/election.
NHS England and the DOH What planet do they live on. (on the seniors fat cat salaries.
Lets all threaten to go Private and then patients can recoup their money from the NHS
a cynic might say that the MDO's have seen an opportunity to increase fees and that GPs will tell the DOH that they cant do extended hours within the existing pay structure. The DOH will pay (they want the extended hours so much) and the MDO's will get their fees !!
The bell tolls for General Practice. Practice with a patient centered practice will die.
This does not address the problems in GP recruitment and what patients want.(but they do not matter to the DOH)
WE need more GPs but not in 5 years but now or there will be a haemorrhage from the older folk and no one to replace them. They happen to also be the most experienced and will be sadly missed.
the election in 4 years may be the crowning factor. Fancy going in with a failing NHS. !
Shorten the training and add a supervised introduction to practice. Safe Effective and problem solving, especially if its including a financial incentive for new GPs!
I see nothing wrong with FY2s who are supervised working in practices(but not OOH services).
The need to increase the GP Doctor count will need a change in GP training to encompass "on the job training", supervision and formal education.
This is the only way we will be able to have sufficient doctors available in General Practice.
it may be that the only way to stop all this is to refer all those back to secondary care whence they came. The CCGs would then have to pay or put a stop to it. Hospitals would be overwhelmed and hence they too might listen, but they can close their lists and put more patients in the LIMBO state. The un-audited waiting list. !!
Far from being a dumping ground GP is the only Generalist Medical career that now exists
The Medical Schools should praise it not denigrate it, This is typical of Academia which promotes false idealistic views of Medicine.
I totally agree
It is not possible to put the genie back in the bag !
GPs to offer ‘step-down’ beds, homecare and counselling as NHS England reveals details of radical new model for practices
The death knell of Mr Cameron's wanting an individual GP who knows the patient and his family. GP as we know it will die !!
there are no words to describe this behaviour. Can the CCG just stop paying all the practices if they are short of money.
This money was agreed and earned.
The officers should be voted out by its members.
Impossible. Howdo we define Sepsis. A Spot ? Conjuncctivitis ? Otitis Media ? LRTIs? UTI ?Pyelonephririt ? Bact Meningitis ? A Paronychia ? (it can lead to Cellulitis ! Insect Bite/? Sinusitis
The task is impossible Who's bright idea was this ?
NICE of Course !!!
As if we do not have enough to do already ? By the wat a course of Amxil or fluclox £1.50 a swab £17.00 and 4 days to get the result. Laughable and expensive !!!!!!!!
Well done UKIP. Cut paperwork and tick boxes. I applaud this but how much money would be saved if we all did this Hospitals, Commissioners (who seem to think of success by producing the longest documents they can, and even the NHS England.
Is it time to raise money by charging Hotel Charges in Hospitals, not for Healthcare but everyone has to pay for food and Laundry at home !!
I am not a UKIP Voter but I applaud them for the most appropriate comment and measures so far. Well done.
Perhaps all these comments should go to Downing street as a positive contribution.
The usual mishmash of panic measures which will never happen in real GP land.
The Deaneries and |NHS management are completely ignorant of the real world.
We need more doctors now not in 2020. Why not offer final year medical students a split role for an extra year and the equivalent of work experience and pay them . Training and supervised work experience.
Solve the bums on seats crisis.
Another hair-brained scheme that shows he just does not understand what we do. No benefit , no outcomes, no point.
Just when will we get time to check these anyway. Just by cutting another couple of appointments a day !!
Own Goal Mr Hunt.
Coem and spend a few days with me at the coal face. But he has to remember I start at 7.00am and I expect him to be prompt !!!
Do you really think GPs would work 100 hrs a week if they were not partners !! Cloud Cuckoo Land !!
He would have to double the numbers and accept the cost implications !!
It shows a complete lack of undertanding and insight into the current situation.
But he is only a politician !!
not a good idea.
more division of the profession
Not a good idea !!
When are we going to act together with one voice ?
