what does it matter if she isn't a partner.
one can still know about partnership issues without being one.
granted it would be best placed knowing the issues as partner but as we partners already know if you are a partner you cant do any additional roles or your life effectively.
are there really any resources for setting a dedicated service?
cheapest option for the government/nhse is for us to get on with using our personal vehicles.
good luck trying to change this but admire that this particular ccg has highlighted the issue
you can't get hold of the belt and braces proper stuff as there is global demand for it so it comes down to rationing. its not right but there it is.
so why are cqc silent now? Surely this is where they should be sharing their wealth of experience for what may help in this current crisis.
They would have seen all aspects of general practice and OOH so would be able to offer an objective and practical view on what may work or measures to think about to tackle the current crisis.
It took Red whale to come up with a sensible practice checklist why not the CQC?
another hung parliament
this is a good job for someone - out of harms way
what possible scientific evidence could this yield on hard end points/quality apart from sporadic anecdotes from patients.
we should be ashamed that so much time/resources and £ has gone into this.
genuinely asking, but where is the evidence this stuff has worked, has there been longer term pilots that have shown stellar results for patient care and reduction in costs etc.
Just open the floodgates, problem solved. We all know its going to happen just a question of when. I'm not sure how any GP working in the current climate could deny this basic law of supply and demand.
inadvertently drives you to go private....
4 years of total rewards vanished in my case
a really helpful lady at pcse/capita persevered with me on a really lengthy phone call and found each and every pensions cert submitted to them by email over 4 years in their inbox. was totally miffed why it wasn't accounted for. still not fully resolved but possibly getting there slowly
complaints dept non existent and keep submitting online reference requests which fall on deaf ears.
locum x sums it up very well.
also I keep seeing this everydoctor campaign - looks interesting. from what i have heard the bma might be bit frightened of this challenger.
I think soon they will have the gp workforce on their books on a ad hoc basis to roller coaster into any area. I don't see many other organisations being able to do this. as a semi young partner who likes tech, as much as i loathe to say it, if you can't beat them, join them.
strange how all the top dogs, bma, rcgp don't just go on record and publicly call out the joke that is capita
very good points especially re mp's truth finder.
unfortunately they make the rules we don't
surely this OOH provider should be penalised for breach of contract - this is unacceptable and staffing is their own issued.
pure jealousy over 3 pages of comments........
i'm sure her role involves PR articles such as this but
surely we can commend someone who has managed to work full time and only do 1 day seeing patients.
Respect is due from me as I am trying to limit my patient contact days as it utterly exhausting in a broken system and I would love employment for 4 days office based but i'm too stupid and not networked enough.
totally a personal view but i'm sure most of us angry and exhausted about general practice feel the same if a high powered office job came up
agree with above. probably ff 3-4 years and the network will quietly be ditched or big private providers will take them over contracting out to the nhs.
e.g nothing to stop g4s etc offering to arrange a turnkey solution for an areas network especially when partners have no time or appetite for this sort of stuff anymore. Surely more of us will give up and give the whole mess to someone else and then just salary for them.
as above, well said. agenda to provide everything all the time. political win but unfortunately comes at a cost which we are currently seeing.
bring on AI/bot consultations so we can all be out of a job and released from this current mess.
Could the editor give Vinci a regular blog spot please?
Ability to combine medicopolitical commentary with contemporary pop culture references is outstanding and would make pulse a lot more readable.
interesting article from Clare - suprised about the parallels now as it was published 2011.
as for support to say no - never going to happen
