sick notes should not be the responsibility of GPs after 1-2 months

Alot of people who are off sick could be back at work, and they would recover more quickly. Typical problems include back pain and depression. People off sick typically lose confidence and become more depressed and their physical health also suffers. I believe that GPs should be concentrating on the physical and mental health of their patients and patients should be encouraged to return to work with the aid of counselling, therapy and a dedicated occupational health scheme. Too much time is spent by doctors already investigating health complaints in people determined to stay off work or who have never worked and have made a lifetime career of being sick and claiming benefits. A robust and independent assessment is vital for the good physical and mental health of the patients,  but I fear that this is a very deep seated problem affecting a small minority of patients and it may also reflect a lack of aspiration sometimes affecting many generations of one family and it may also reflect social inequalities and a desperation  to access resources.

Freedom to choose G.P. outside the postcode area

Can David Cameron please reintroduce his idea given about two years ago that he would abolish the limit of post code ruling for patients in their choice of G.P. if he ever came to government. Some of us have wonderful doctors but if we have moved just outside the post code where he practises his practice manager tells us we can no longer be on their patient list. Please, Nick Clegg, please adopt this idea your self and give us a right of choice here!! Let us choose our own doctor and not one forced on us by a wretched post code restriction?

administration of medicine without requiring consent – urgent

Side effects mental health treatment take for granted are inhumane; the dose that gives these hyperawful effects is administrated without requiring the patients permission.

Permission should always be required; patients' opinions of their medication should be respectfully acknowledged and requests for lesser dosage should be obeyed without exception.

Minds will take preventative measures to outdo critical physical health, adverse onsets of debilitating mental states, and can and do include accident preventions.

In the mind, dimensions are 'yesterday and censured memory-banks', and also 'tomorrow and possibility'; when critical eruption of reason and emotions are within possibility the brain recognises a logic having emergency measures and initiates supreme proxy; homes each ration enough secure ID.

Removing Restrictions on Numbers of General Practice Sugeries To Increase Competition

At present the number of NHS general practitioners in any area is limited and controlled by the local PCT.  This regulation is liked by the PCT as it gives them more control and very popular with existing practices as it gives them a local monopoy to supply services.

This anti-competitive regulation gives existing practices an unhealthy level of protection and at best encourages complacency or at worst allows bad practice to continue unchallenged until there is need for a formal complaint.. The threat of another practice opening nearby would make practices much more responsive to patients opinions and needs.

The new regulations allowing parents the freedom to set up their own schools could be mirrored in general practice with groups of patients setting up and running practices with the services that they felt were needed in their area. Putting the patient in charge would revolutionise general practice and vastly improve levels of care. Patients are the best judge of the services they want and the doctors who treat them best.

As the new regulations for schools will awaken education, so new practices could lift general practice to much more patient centred services without extra costs.

The following are some examples of incidences where repeal of this regulation would have been much better for patients.

Suffolk.

In a small coastal town a doctor appointed an old college friend as a junior partner. This man was arrogant , had a rude off hand manner that upset patients but rarely justified a formal complaint. There was substantial unrest amongst the patients who tried to set up another doctor in an alternative sugery , but they were prevented by the PCT.

Eventually the doctor concerned refused to visit a child who later died of meningitis . He left the practice after this incident but patients remained upset as they had always realised he was uncaring and probably dangerous.

Hove

In a three doctor practice all the partners are male. Last year when the senior partner retired a large number of patients requested that a woman doctor be appointed. In spite of this a further man was appointed as the partners did not want the bother of a partner who might get pregnant. Had there been the possibility that a woman doctor or two could put up their plates in the locality and start a new practice they would have been very successful. Probably the threat alone woud have been enough to moderate the doctor centred behaviour of the two partners who appointed like for their own comfort.

Camden

A doctor in Camden reported her partners to the PCT for dishonest and dangerous practice. When the complaints went to the GMC one doctor was deemed in need of retraining and the other was suspended for more than two years. The doctor who complained was locked out of the practice by the two doctors at fault and prevented from practising. Patients were distraught at losing their much loved doctor and asked the PCT for permission to set her up in practice in the local muslim community centre. There was adequate funding and enormous patient enthusiasm for this project but the PCT refused and refuse to allow it.

Had the two faiing doctors had the threat that this doctor could open an opposing practice present then they would have modified their behaviour earlier as they were aware that they were not popular with patients.

Private sector doctors should not be able to overrule your own GP

The idea is that whichever law allows companies to send people to private  doctors, who are obviously working in the interests of the company, not the patients (in breach of some of the most basic tenants of their profession) needs to be changed in some manner so that these unethical sellout doctors cannot overrule your own GP.

Your own GP acts in the interests of a patients wellbeing, as it should be, whereas an unethical private doctor working only in the interests of a company only has their own financial interests and the interests of the company they have sold out to in their minds.

Revalidation of doctors – abolish it

The program of doctors' revalidation every 5 years is very expensive, putting a lot of pressure on doctors (beauricratic requirements and filling the forms) and there is no evidence that it will increase (or influence) patients' safety at all.
The famous Dr Shipman would pass the revalidation with honors …
