Locum GPs forced to claim benefits as work dries up

Comment

Been waiting for unpleasant comments like 11:48am. Anonymity to add to the unpleasantness, too. I don’t think using out of date over up to date doctors is good for patients. I don’t think doctors working for free is good for the profession (the Government may think otherwise...) I don’t think the CCAS shambles is good for anyone. I don’t think asking for sympathy is helpful - or reasonable, in my opinion. I do think we should all be angry that medical skills are being under-utilised in a pandemic - and we should reflect on the myriad reasons the locum workforce is needed in “normal” times.
