THE MIDDLE MEN – RECYCLED

September 2009

The spirit is moving me to bring this old post to the front of this blog again.

Creep has crept this far in less than a year!!!

THIS IS THE KIND OF THING THAT MAKES ME HOPPING MAD!!!

LINK TO A GOOGLE MAP OF HOSPITALS WHICH BYPASS MEDICAL STAFF

Just look at these examples:

Burton Hospitals NHS Trust

% of non-medical specialists: 52%
Policy to inform patients: N/A
GPs able to request doctor: No

……………..

Morecambe Bay Hospitals NHS Trust

% of non-medical specialists: 72%
Policy to inform patients: No
GPs able to request doctor: Yes

…………..

Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust

% of non-medical specialists: 93%
Policy to inform patients: No
GPs able to request doctor: No

…………

Buckinghamshire Hospitals NHS Trust

% of non-medical specialists: 53%
Policy to inform patients: No
GPs able to request doctor: Yes

…………….

And this one beats them all:

Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

% of non-medical specialists: 81%
Policy to inform patients: No
GPs able to request doctor: No

If you click on their website of Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust there is a scrolling message that describes the place as “UTOPIA”

…………

I simply cannot believe I’m reading this!!! Why in God’s name have the medical profession allowed this to happen!!!!

…………….

Northern Doc has something to say about this too .…..

THE “CONSULTANT” WILL SEE YOU NOW

NOVEMBER 2008

Please read Gee-Pee Mum and The Jobbing Doctor first.

If The Witch Doctor was to make a list of the initiatives that has made monkeys of doctors over recent years, the first two would undoubtedly be:

1. MTAS/MMC
2. The Arrogant Geezers who vet referrals between GP and consultant

Neither of these phenomena should ever have been allowed to happen.

Not ever.

SPINELESS CONSULTANTS NOT BOTHERING MUCH WHILE WAITING FOR THEIR PATIENT ALLOCATION

Not much has been said in this blog about (2) but in The Witch Doctor’s opinion, this is the prime example of doctors selling their patients and their profession down the river. At risk of turning this into a Minor Swear Blog, all that needs to be said about the medical profession regarding this is:

“Hell mend the medical profession for allowing this to happen.”

The solution is simple.

If you are a consultant you get to know your GP colleagues.

If you are a consultant you insist that you open all your own mail.

If you are a consultant, you insist that if a GP wants you personally to see a patient, they write the referral to you personally and mark the envelope “Strictly Confidential” or “Strictly Personal.”

If the system tries to sabotage things at this stage then organise the appointment yourself.

If any manager / administrator / clinical director / medical director waves a stick in your direction, then wield a bigger stick.

DO NOT TRY TO BE “REASONABLE” OR “NICE”  OVER A MATTER AS IMPORTANT AS THIS.

What would you want to happen if you were the patient?

Where do you suppose the creep will end?

This works.

You will be taken seriously.

If you can be bothered.
