GP concerns over network DES will form ‘basis’ of talks with NHSE, says BMA


I have just listened to a podcast by Patrick Deneen who cheered me up by saying that the "neo-liberal world" wishes to structure, enforce and report the actions of those who work in vocational professions in the mistaken belief that it is necessary and will generate better outcomes. He made it quite clear that this is misguided and patronising and does not help the morale of those same professionals who don't need to be cajoled and who, given the right conditions (ie time and resources), know exactly what to do anyway. Sadly reassuring but very validating when we look at these sort of sudden contract changes.
