Doctors on Strike

#1
I see the doctors are now going to go on strike. Will they be calling the army in again this time?
 
#3
I cant see it doing any harm, since, statistically speaking, 89.6% of illnesses presented to GP's clear up of their own accord within 5 - 7 days.
 
#5
GP training for squaddies (or anyone else for that matter), repeat after me:

"Hmm, yes, I see your problem. Take 2 paracetamols 3 times a day for a fortnight. If it doesn't clear up, pop back in, OK? NEXT!"

I've had a dig around in the G10 stores in my loft and found a couple of first field dressings with rusty safety pins attached, I think I can still remember how to do a triangular bandage - we'll be fine!

I'm in the process of getting my doctorate. From the university of Lagos. It'll be a tough 10 minutes but I think it'll be worthwhile.

It's not a walk out. They are to provide ‘urgent and emergency care only’.

The BMA has ruled out total withdrawal of labour and resolved that members will attend their usual workplace for that day for the times they would normally attend. This means that those doctors participating in the industrial action must turn up at their workplace. A doctor who decided to stay at home (if they would normally be expected in to work on that day) would be acting outside of the scope of the official industrial action. Their action would therefore be unlawful and they could be subject to disciplinary action. Doctors being at their workplace (albeit not doing elective work) will help to assure patient safety by making certain that enough doctors are available for urgent and emergency care if needed, and will promote solidarity by providing support for the doctors who cannot take action that day because they are on call or scheduled to undertake urgent or emergency duties.

I'll gladly offer my services at the mammogram unit.

I won't have a clue what I'm doing, but I can guarantee that ladies that they'll never have a more thorough examination.

That would be the quickest way to make sure you never want to look at a breast again, the amount of fat, sweaty and smelly flesh you would be expected to manipulate. I'd give you half an hour before you come out retching.

I had thought of that. I would simply tell the fattys to fuck off, and skip to the hotties and MILFs.

As said above they're not going on "strike". A single day's industrial action not affecting emergency care is unlikely to change the government's mind on pension reform.

Not quite sure why this is in the NAAFI but anyway. A GP colleague paid off her student loans at 38yrs old It takes a long time to earn money as a Doctor and junior Doctors earn about the same as senior nurses.
We've had several recruitment drives throughout Europe to get doctors as there is always a shortage.
The training of 'physicians assistants' doesn't seem to have worked.
GP's are working longer hours due to extended hours and people who think they play golf half the day are deluded. A GP's day will typically be morning surgery from maybe 0800hrs-1200hrs, visits, meetings, lunch, then evening surgery until whatever time they decide to stop working and then sometimes more visits.

You forgot the tubigrip if you're on about the Military Med Centre...

All of them, I'd imagine. It's part of the training.

If it's been sent from my HTC Sensation using Tapatalk then I'm probably pissed.
