LMCs draw up explosive 'plan B' to take GP practices outside the NHS


Anonymous | Other healthcare professional28 Oct 2016 5:41pm I think you don't understand the misuse of NHS by patients. I have had so many requests for OTC meds from patients for themselves and their kids. If there is a small misuse, then yeah, it can be sustainable. Now its not misuse anymore - its entitlement. one guy told me,"I f...g pay your wages" for refusing to prescribe paracetamol - 15p for a box in shops. I kept quite. I didn't want to lose my job/risk another complaint. I was so close to saying, '' No, U don't f....g pay my wages. But my taxes pay your benefits. I know because I did your sick notes and I know from the DWP letter you are on long term disability. Anonymous Health care professional - U have no clue whats going on and how serious this is. Just don't comment on this website please.
