GPs warned to prepare for 4% pay cut


Pope Francis is catholic, the bear s**ts in the woods and the government wants to squeeze more out for less. Everytime you disagree, as a clinician about how something should be managed, copy (wiith consent) your actual suggested actions to the patient's MP and CCG lead. Swamp them with your misgivings about patient care, prescribing restrictions etc... If you feel your workload is too much then admit you're being dangerous to your health and the patients; tell your appraiser/responsible officer and your patient's MP. None of the above will work though as we're cornered by our self-employed status and the budget defecit that the country has. If HMG won't afford a decent health service and treat its providers with respect but can bail out banks and neglectfully allow tax evasion then they will set it all to fail. We'll just have to go down with the rest of the country whilst trying to do what's best for people.
