This morning we trawled the medical press and found this article in the UK GP magazine Pulse. Not been able to find anything definite to back it up on the DoH website unless it is hidden in Sir Liam's fortnightly bulletin for journalists. A real rivoting read fully of pretty graphs all in colour too.
Later in the day when we were working we found that the Jobbing Doctor (respect) posted this piece.
What are we simple GPs missing?
A National Health Service?
Which is . . .
Praise be to the Party for its consistency in a “crisis” of its own making which means we here in the UK in general practice are clearly like mushrooms kept in the dark.
And when the "big one" hits, what then? Doesn't bear thinking about but we will have to cope regardless of such co-ordinated central "planning".
Contact Northern Doc:
Northern Doc was once a blog originally written by a group of GPs in Northernshire and expressed their experiences and frustrations of working in today's NHS. The pieces were compiled at social meetings after work and published anonymously in a once free society. Following the Government's Medical Council clamp down on freedom of thought, speech and expression by doctors and our belief that the views of a few doctors DO NOT represent the views of the profession as a whole their views will now be written by and published by a journalist who has previously contributed to the blog by virtue of social ties. Any inference that the word Doc means a doctor is now purely coincidental. This is as of the 22 April 2013.
