Fit Notes are coming?

Just watched an item on one of the morning TV programs with a government Lord explaining the new fit note scheme. Pretty boring stuff as this has been smouldering away for years but his parting comment pricked up our ears. It went along the lines of it “will be computerized to reduce GPs work.”

The Fit Note is to be introduced in April 2010. Another Government scheme to reduce GPs work like extended hours? Prepare yourselves fellow resistance fighters for the inevitable: another over priced, inefficient, work generating waste of time and money like Choose and Book.

Praise be to the Party for its ever efficient use of computers to increase costs and workload in healthcare. Now if we could just find a cabinet minister to ask them which computer companies they will be using then we could buy share in these that will be funding their forthcoming retirement from politics . . .
