Locums at NHS-run practices faced with 'unacceptable workload'

Comment

its salutary to see how NHS boards cannot run a practice. Its time the value of traditional primary care was properly valued and the government did something positive to support it such as removing the CQC nonsense check ups of paper work, the onerous Data protection protocols, the mandatory training in stuff we rarely have to deal with and the revalidation merry go round that wastes time. In our practice retired admin staff often put in sessions on a zero hours basis which is a HUGE help but doctors are so bound down by petty regulations they cannot help out once retired. Time to get rid of the unproductive stuff so we can concentrate on seeing patients.
