I won’t take long on this one.
Scotland’s national clinical director Prof Jason Leitch told the BBC the JCVI was trialling whether GPs could give boosters to older people attending flu vaccine appointments. However, Dr David Shackles, who jointly chairs RCGP Scotland, said general practice had been expressing serious concerns about the “already stretched workforce” for some time. He said: “General practice is already working beyond full capacity and GPs have had unprecedented demand for appointments due to backlog.
General practice is already working beyond full capacity?
OMG, there must be a crisis elsewhere in the UK because:
Unless something dramatic has happened since 2019, Scotland has more doctors per head of population than any other part of the UK and far more than many parts.
This is just shop steward stuff like the NUM or the RMT back in the day and a sickening tendency to politicise health at this time.
Dr Shackles, just grow up.
