GPC calls ‘emergency meeting’ to discuss action on NHSE access plan

GPC calls ‘emergency meeting’ to discuss action on NHSE access plan

The BMA’s GP Committee has convened an emergency meeting to discuss what action to take in response to NHS England’s GP access plan.

The meeting will be held ‘in the next few days’ to discuss the package set out by the health secretary last week, a BMA spokesperson said.

However, they said they were unable to discuss the meeting any further in the public domain at this stage.

It remains unclear when exactly the meeting will take place and what is on the table.

It comes as one LMC has advised local practices ‘not to participate in any aspect’ of NHS England’s measures to improve access to general practice.

Am sure the profession would be right behind the GPC in taking a stand against the frank oppression that seems to be exerted currently. We are and our teams are suffering which ultimately affects the care patients receive in a multitude of ways. Be strong GPC please please please 💪🏻

The number of emergency meetings held is borderline useless.
Like I said – you stand up in the meeting while they sit down and tell them exactly how this profession works and how disgusting it is to cover-up for “them” – or invite them to experience it first hand, without their bodyguards and polished shoes.

get out as soon as you can.

come to locumland, where you can choose when, where, for how long, and for how much you will work.

if you’re approaching your pension limit, say “i’m sorry – love to help, but HMRC are making this impossible”

as the number affected increases, the locum force will decrease.

and then the sh*t will really hit the fan !

With the crisis that is ongoing and seemingly worsening by the week it is sad to report
1 The provider of phlebotomy in our community hospital is stopping at the end of the month-no public consultation just an assumption that the GP s will take on the work and the CCG seems to go along with it even though they know there is no space no staff and no capacity
2 one of the NHS bodies i work for has notified me that my manual handling level one expires in 10 days and unless renewed i will not be allowed to work. It does not expire until next May
