RCGP cautiously endorses chaplains in GP practices

Comment

I think my practice can hire whoever it likes without any recourse to the RCGPs. Along with the BMA they are an irrelevance. However, if people want spiritual guidance there are already churches, mosques, temples, synagogues and other places of worship that they can attend any time for free and there is no need to introduce any of this into General Practice. It just reinforces the paternalistic and disempowering rhetoric that the NHS is there to solve all the issues in life rather than the ones that we are trained (and commissioned) to deal with.
