GP practice paid to divert lonely patients to charities


Vinci and NHS manager have their rightly held views. What is evident to me is the many stress points that we are all familiar. We must stop apologising for wishing to be well paid for a professional job that sees our practices providing millions of appointment a day to an insatiable appetite. The politicians are feeding this by pounds of GP staff flesh. We are down to the bear bones and are about to fail to keep up with 'servicing' the eat all you can buffet for £80/pt/yr. that's ridiculously cheap. The system needs more money or less work. (The latest less bureaucratic QoF is BS too. Adding back the unplanned admission service is a joke, more paper time less patient time.)
