Cash for dementia diagnoses ‘draws attention’ to under-diagnosis, says NHS long-term conditions tsar


Just finished those useful care plans in time..tick. Right..dementia diagnosis. This MUST be useful and cost effective too...seem to remember something about Wilson rules, but that must be rubbish now (the clever people on government must know what they are doing)? I must go on an update course for my appraisal, I've obviously missed the bit about cost effective treatment for dementia and all people wanting to be tested? Haaaang on....this is just another inch of utter s*&yte to wade through every fricking day!!! CQC, revalidation/appraisal, 7 day opening, I'm lazy/greedy, get paid too much, the media bending us over a barrel every other day with a hefty toxic enema of GPs are sh*&te at XY and Z. Too many groups want to tinker with what we do and I feel like I'm starting to drown under the never ending avalanche of bureaucracy - we need to take action and kick our representatives into positive action. The GMC is part of the problem so they should be scrapped.
