Government to fast-track other medical professionals swapping over to general practice


sorry to whinge on (i'm off today and it's raining outside so i don't have anything better to do!) but some of the ideas mentioned - DO NOT COST A PENNY - ABOLISH ALL QUANGOES (CQC, NHSE, NICE, Monitor etc) -> cost savings £100 millions -> use the money to fund doctors/NHS staff - GET RID OF REVALIDATION 28 million (based on my calculation of 50 encounters a day x 14 days x 40000 GPs) encounters for FREE! - REFORM GMC again the stress and lost productivity due to GMC failures results in lost patient contact. - REFORM RCGP the money saved by GPs by scrapping RCGP could pay for a locum (for a half day). A good deal. - EXPLORE ALTERNATIVE MODELS OF HEALTHCARE we may just come up with an idea that saves the NHS (or not) ?
