Comment

To S.K.S "I'd say freedom from serfitude, not wanting to feel exploited by another and yes the wonga, do motivate most GPs, it's a fact" Your point being...?? Let's see, hmm... "I'd say freedom from serfitude, not wanting to feel exploited by another and yes the wonga, do motivate most bankers, it's a fact" "I'd say freedom from serfitude, not wanting to feel exploited by another and yes the wonga, do motivate most criminals, it's a fact" "I'd say freedom from serfitude, not wanting to feel exploited by another and yes the wonga, do motivate most lollipop, it's a fact." Oh I see - not being in servitude, not feeling exploited and wanting wonga is a god given right for only GPs. as a group of workers, to expect/demand. Is that what you mean? And I take it that you feel as a result of this injustice that GPs should have no sense of professionalism towards patient care because you want to stick it to the boss man. And what providing OOH care for acute problems has to do with providing continuity of care for patients with LTCs. only you know. Note the difference between acute (needing to be seen urgently) as opposed to chronic (ongoing management over time). Trust me a cardigan would not be seeing let alone writing a letter for any patient at 10.30pm to expedite hernia surgery or any other obviously inappropriate request. We cardigans do have some discretionary judgement you know, despite what some might say. But then again a cardigan probably isn't so "wonga" hungry to be doing that OOH shift in the first place!!
