GPs refute briefing claims that they are 'referring large numbers to A&E'


Thank you Jaimie and Ellie for bringing this to everyone’s attention here on Pulse. Please can everyone consider signing the open letter (which seems calm , measured and non -inflammatory ) and spreading the word. Frankly I find it sickening that one of our medical colleagues should use this high profile event to persue her GP bashing agenda when we have been working our socks off since day 1 . Yes we have reduced F2F but we are still willingly seeing and visiting patients when clinically indicated. The admin and organisational challenges have increased significantly and , again , GPs have risen to the challenge. Come on colleagues !! Let’s not accept GP bashing and lets try to educate this ‘professor’ about how GP practices work..... I also agree with comments elsewhere that we must thank all our staff - Nurses , PAs , managers and admin teams , IT support and pharmacists as its not just about GPs....thank you
