According to the Herald:
THE rollout of Covid vaccines to the over-80s could be stalled as thousands of GPs and primary care staff have yet to receive any inoculation. There are warnings that unvaccinated doctors do not feel safe to start bringing hundreds of elderly patients into GP practices from next week.
The ‘warnings’ come from Andy Mcintosh who runs an online forum GP Survival Scotland. They are only a Facebook page with an empty ‘About us’ section and less than 4 000 followers who may be doctors across the UK. There are around than 60 000 GPs in the UK. The group’s presence in Scotland is not known.
Is the warning based only on reports form NHS England?
I cannot remember the last time a GP gave me jag. I’ve had the flu jag for years now and a nurse always did it. I’ve had blood taken several times and even during this pandemic. It has not even been a nurse but a very young ‘nursing assistant.’
Friends I speak to tell the same story about other GP practices.
I haven’t met a GP in person since 2019. Those same friends have had the same non-experience.
My 90 year-old mum is only ever visited by a nurse and gets jags for more than one thing, from only a nurse. She hasn’t seen a GP for years.
