One of the team saw this little gem on the web this morning. Quite frightening if true for it means that GPs will no longer be able to resist the will of the new Party for they will have to obey its new set of organs the consortia.
Fine if you have enlightened forward thinking intelligent GPs in charge but if your consortia GPs are at best a quarter of a century out of date being led by PCTs who don’t even know the Berlin Wall has come down where does that leave the individual GP? Can you see the GMC being lenient on a GP who cocks up and uses the “I was only following consortia orders” excuse? Didn’t work that well at Nuremberg did it?
Praise be the Party for liberating GPs and the NHS from top down reorganization and Big Government. Things can only get better?
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.
