Mandator NHS service plan for new doctors…..? Run, Doctors, Run! (While You Still Can)

The European Convention of Human Rights is going to be ditched when we leave the EU. Brexit could exclude much needed overseas talent, but also chain our own down. Getting experience abroad has been part of development for many doctors, most of whom return home. The undercapacity in medical staffing and manpower, and the more attractive “shape of a job” abroad do tempt many to stay. One answer is to remove performance management, improve morale by “showing care” (for staff) and training an excess for delivery in 10 years time. Juniors with ambitions to expand their horizons are incensed. Narrowing their experience will only help to reduce standards further. The time for feedback to the administration and the Hunt style “jack Boots” is gone, but below is article by Dr Evgenia Galinskaya, and I can only apologise for missing the deadline for consultation (June 2nd). Run, Doctors, Run!

About Roger Burns - retired GP

I am a retired GP and medical educator. I have supported patient participation throughout my career, and my practice, St Thomas; Surgery, has had a longstanding and active Patient Participation Group (PPG). I support the idea of Community Health Councils, although I feel they should be funded at arms length from government. I have taught GP trainees for 30 years, and been a Programme Director for GP training in Pembrokeshire 20 years. I served on the Pembrokeshire LHG and LHB for a total of 10 years. I completed an MBA in 1996, and I along with most others, never had an exit interview from any job in the NHS! I completed an MBA in 1996, and was a runner up for the Adam Smith prize for economy and efficiency in government in that year. This was owing to a suggestion (St Thomas' Mutual) that practices had incentives for saving by being allowed to buy rationed out services in the following year.
