Notes from Kafka’s care home

There is a desperate need for general physicians and geriatricians as well as community paediatrics. Sadly all 3 specialties are now called GPs. The increased rules and blame culture and treating everyone involved in care as a Shipmamn can only lead to 999 calls to see those in palliative care at the expense of those still alive and striking off the remaining numbers of doctors and nurses still left to show systems are in place to ensure a false sense of safety.
