No financial compensation for GPs affected by performers list delays


'health minister David Mowat said that it was ‘vital’ the process allowed time to check applicants had provided sufficient evidence' - Yes - 12 weeks which is far more than the process took before the DOH decided to farm it out to a private company Capita which has a history of incompetence and delays - and somehow (NO evidence of bribery or back handers to politicians or civil servants proven)got awarded this multimillion pound contract, which they are milking dry for any semblance of profit, leaving very little money and no trained staff to do the job they have been contracted to do in a meaningful time period due to incompetence and lack of any checks or penalties. The trained puppet standing in for the (I was not sacked by Mrs May but got reinstated JH - who is mysteriously absent recently)can't stand up and say - yes we are to blame for this debacle - please sue us for hundreds or thousands in cumulative lost earnings from all the GPs suffering due to their poor decision to give Capita the contract. The GPs in question all hols GMC registration and have passed the RCGP training and exams - hence by default are safe to work. Sack Capita and recoup all the 100 million and spend on patient care - leaving the GMC to hold the register of who is entitled to work - without pointless bureaucracy and duplication.
