‘You’re completely missing the point!’ Sajid was warned that he is ‘out of touch’ because he’stirs hatred’ towards doctors.
Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Health, has been accused of “raising hatred” towards GPs, according to a new report that criticizes the mounting pressure on doctors in recent months.
Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, has been accused of being “out of touch” and “raising hatred” against general practitioners. The criticism came after family doctors were handed a £250 million support package to ensure that all patients could see a doctor face to face. Following the coronavirus epidemic, GPs have been under increasing pressure to resume normal consultations since the majority of appointments had to be transferred either online or over the phone.
“The bundle as a whole is pretty little,” Charlie Stayt stated on BBC Breakfast. It demonstrates that the government is utterly unaware of the magnitude of the problem on the ground.
“And it appears that this is the main issue. If people are furious, you’re talking about putting CCTV.
“This morning, a GP accused you of inflaming the rhetoric, the anti-GP vitriol.”
‘That’s what they’re charging you of.”
“Well, this is a support package,” Sajid Javid responded.
“I mean, I think most people find it difficult to see how a quarter-billion pounds in extra funding, cuts in red tape they’ve requested, having pharmacists to help with some of the workload, how that isn’t going to enable GPs do what they do best, which is seeing their patients.”
“It’s all about helping each other.”
“Let’s not forget that throughout this epidemic, we had people staying away from the NHS, even doctors, for the correct and understandable reason of being urged to do so during the peak of the pandemic.”
“There are many people on waiting lists who want assistance,” he continued.
“They require assistance, and it is critical that they now come forward and receive that assistance, and it is reasonable to urge others to do so.”
“At the same time, we must provide the support that GPs have requested.”
“That’s what this is all about: collaborating with GPs to explore what else we can do.”
Ministers announced a £250 million winter rescue package for GPs in England, allowing them to see more patients in person.
It is predicted that social distancing laws would be loosened so that GPs can see more patients. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
