Baubles, beads and trinkets the new Manhattan deal for general practice.

There are some real morons at present who are medical “leaders” and false “professors” as can be seen by this latest announcement from a certain Royal “College”.
Now if you were a GP wanting to return to practice what would you want to tempt you back?
1) Not having to pay a minimum of just under £ 11,000 a year for basic medical defence insurance? Of course not patients are far more important.
2) A highly paid stress free job, free of the NHS institutionalized bureaucracy one of the reasons you left in the first place whereby seeing and treating patients was (once) an option and the reason you became a doctor in contrast to today’s box ticking for bureautards fully supported by a certain Royal “College”?
Of course not, comrades, reflection is far more important than treating patients it achieves bugger all (for patients) other than ticking another box for retards. 
3) A job with reduced workload (most GPs leave because of workload) and the opportunity to see real illness in contrast to socialized inadequacy?
Of course not comrades completing an e-portfolio each year is far more rewarding and important and so by adding to workload it merely reduces your stress after seeing the odd patient who may, or more likely not, have anything wrong with them but the RCGP does not do illness.
4) No annual appraisal or any other such crap (all for the benefit of the Party and its bum chums at the GMC et al)?
All of which are but some of the (many) reasons why you left as a GP in the first place.
So if a Scottish womble says ah way hin, that must be terrible, I feel your pain and while I am here can I explore your Ideas, Concerns and Expectations of why you wish to return (not) to practice and do absolutely nothing about your problems after pretending to listen while appearing concerned and then goes on to say I think I can help, would you like a free year’s membership of the RCGP as there is a loads of evidence of its benefits together with that of  crystal healing, quantumtouch and homeopathy? 
We suspect that most GP (even) thinking of a return to practice (after 20 pints of Old Scroty Grundge and a serious head injury) would view this in the same way as someone asking you to come and see some puppies. 
Most GPs of a certain age who actually had the option of joining said Royal “College” would think and would once have known the true meaning of the word to “ice” someone.
Currently membership of this alleged “college” is compulsory as they are the Party groomers of GPs to be to fix social not medical problems and as such the “College” has a degree of (political) impotence but most GP registrars are bright enough to realize that its methods are so flawed that they are retarded (sic the e-portfolio, reflection et al) although its alleged “leaders” think otherwise.
GP registrars also know that such reflections can screw them more than their trainers do now but none at the RCGP can see this for most believe that the sun revolves around something dark called reflection which is essentially the art of self colonoscopy with the light switched off and then saying I can see everything more clearly now to your trainer or appraiser.
So if this is aimed at GPs who have left general practice and maybe older ones we are sure that those proposing it on high think that GPs can still be bought by baubles, beads and trinkets from the RCGP when schemes offering tens of thousands of pounds have failed to attract GPs to general practice posts. 
The war on the lack of GP recruitment will, comrades, be over by Christmas by this simple, innovative intervention of the RCGP for less than the cost of a First World War rifle (Lee Enfield) today by provision of up to £ 519 of RCGP membership will mean that GPs not currently in practice will like lemmings be flooding back soon in droves to return to work.
Clearly many hours of institutionalized retardation at the Royal “College” will have led to this earth shattering idea and we are sure that they will reflect at length on its success when it achieves absolutely nothing useful like a GP returning to work. Their e-protfolio will be full of brown stuff with which to discuss with and impress their appraiser. 
The muppets retaking Manhattan perhaps by a “New Deal”? You can see Jeremy’s smile now as he knows he will meet his 5000 new GP target thanks to his friends . . . 
Praise be to the Party for understanding why no-one wants to be a GP and thinking that baubles, beads and trinkets are the answer. And that is just those that claim to represent the profession that they do not understand.

Are we there yet?

For months here in the UK the population has been bombarded on a daily basis by claim and counter claim about its continuing involvement with the European Union. Today at long last the British people actually have had their say in contrast to the politicians et al who have had hours of air time. 
What has been decided by the combined people(?s) of the United Kingdom will mean there is only one thing that will be absolutely certain and that is that despite the lies and counter lies the NHS will be no better or worse off. Throughout the whole campaign both sides have banged on about the NHS using the NHS in the only way politicians know how to use it for as a mere political football to kick to death. And boy have they given it a good kicking. 
Just look at how little we spend on the NHS as a percentage of GDP compared with other European countries for until this increases the NHS will only get worse regardless of whether we are in or out of Europe.
Praise be to the Party for spending so much time talking about the NHS rather than spending a little more time to fix it. Talk as they say is cheap, healthcare is not especially good quality healthcare.
Still if you believe that the 200+ CCGs in the England get a share a £ 350 million a week that went to Europe then £ 350 million shared by 200 to keep the maths simples means that each CCG should be getting an extra 1.5 million a week to spend or may be a bit less given the other countries in the UK so the NHS will be laughing all the way to the brexit . . . ? Dream on.

A relative’s comments.

The first 2 minutes of any Party determined 10 minute appointment are now usually spent listening to the NHS non-paying punter complaining about how long it took them (to struggle) to get a totally free at the point of abuse NHS appointment with a GP something that anywhere else in the world they would have to pay for.

How the public in the UK suffer under this system is remarkable as they never complain to their elected “members” of Parliament who provide it and who often only spend a mere couple of hours a month listening to them complaining in contrast to those who work full time (listening to their complaints about the system that they cannot change).

5 such punters waste a whole GP appointment and a whole day’s worth of appointments could be as many as 10 appointments wasted by the non-paying NHS whingers before they start on any alleged illnesses always in the plural but rarely if ever in reality. They just whinge and go on and on and on.

A recent dinner party at your average UK GP’s baronial mansion led a senior relative to pass comment, when the port was passed around for the 97th time after their junior relative, a mere GP, had finished their working day on the golf course about the appalling state of general practice today.

Their comment was that at ones last attendance at ones General Practitioner had resulted in a disturbing comment from ones GP that distressed our relative and left them thinking that they were abusing the service.

They briefly needed the administration of smelling salts stat due to an acute attack of the vapours but fortunately declined the offer of an urgent NHS 111 consult and subsequent blue light ambulance and trip to A&E for a slight emotional upset.

And what was this incredibly hurtful comment from their GP?

The comment from their GP was: 

“Thank you for being the only person that came to see me today who said that they had just one problem and who actually had just one problem”. 

And we bet no GP anywhere in the UK thinks they have finished their consultation before the non-paying punter says, with an idiot grin on their face, for they know they are on to a good thing called free healthcare says any of the following:



And also.

The other thing was . . .

I don’t come here very often . . .

I have saved them all up . . .

While I am here . . .

Can you see my relative while I am here?

Can I just order my relatives(s) repeat prescription(s) and . . .?

While I have gotcha mate can I just . . .

I know it is an emergency appointment for one item but can I just . . .

I just have a couple of things . . . (7 items later and still going . . .) 

And all of the above is as if they were all just doing their GPs a favour (remember the non-paying NHS punter’s idiot grin)? 

Can you imagine any other profession with the cashometer running feeling aggrieved by the above idiot grins seen by GPs on a punter by punter daily basis? If you are wondering why your GP appointments never run to time just look to the above “while I am here” wasters  just (doing their GPs and fellow patients a favour?). How selfless.

Of course not. 

Any other profession would be laughing all the way to the bank for with every other increasing demand for trivia the cashometer would be ticking on an hourly basis at your average accountants’, solicitors’, dentists’ or vets’ office but runs completely free with unlimited use in General Practice in the NHS’s using socialized medicine’s free at the point of abuse principle. 

Funny how GPs in the UK are not laughing at the moment and certainly not to the bank for increased demand for trivia is not rewarded by politicians it is merely encouraged.

No wonder our relative felt so guilty for they had not wasted their NHS GP’s time and had been honest with their GP and could count. And what was even more telling was that they could remember the days of having to pay to see GPs and that you did not waste their time then for most people could not afford to do so then. 

Such patients in United Kingdom general practice are as rare as is true illness in contrast to fabricated trivia or socialized inadequacy which is currently the raison d’etre of the health service and keeps the RCGP in existence and creates false prophets, sorry false professors of their leaders. 

One of them was a once a weak man in general practice and has since said he is ashamed to be a GP in a system that he oversaw the creation of and is now the Witchfinder General of General Practice at the CQC. Who knows what great “academic” contribution the other will make? Perhaps they will rediscover the 4 elements and impart them to their students via “reflection” and the ePortfolio?

Praise be to the Party for ensuring that one of the most expensive resources that takes care of 90% of healthcare in the UK is available for less than 8% of the NHS budget and with completely unlimited access completely free at the point of abuse. 

And nobody appreciates honesty for lying is the bedrock of all GP appointments and has been so since the inception of the NHS and abuse of the service continues to be completely free with a zero tolerance policy of any form of redress for doing so and it is reinforced by the donkeys that currently lead the decreasing number of lions.
