Headline

Gerada to 'start dialogue' on GPs' independent contractor status in new NHS England role

Comment

I do think Clare realises what is good for London may not fit the rest of the country which is why Berkshire where I practice had good OOH care pre2004 and post. 111 has caused chaos at our A+E whilst the OOH call volume has decreased. Where GPs were talking and looking after patient 111 has sent them to less qualified staff in A+E -genius. I'm ready to give up responsibility for my building staff and getting the job done and demanding pay, rest, study leave, annual leave and not crawling in whilst sick as no one else can cover my on call. Let them win over our complacent alive bodies. Take up clinical jobs only.----unfortunately we know it'll cost more.
