Just how lazy is your greedy and overpaid GP?

Britain’s best known GP, the late Dr Harold Shipman was no slacker and worked all hours on behalf of the “envy of the world” that is the NHS. But a survey out today shows just how unusual such patient commitment is in Shipman’s profession.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast 11 March - Being uber bearish and being a mean bastard to wronguns like Lawson

I repeat my request re itunes - please go give Bearcast a 5* rating now. Then I refer to Amanda's piece earlier which is a compelling lesson in why its right to be a bear. Finally I explain why I am a mean bastard when dealing with Dr Harold Shipman, oops I meant Roger Lawson of ShareSoc.

My father Suffers A Day of NHS Incompetence, at least Dr Harold Shipman was efficient

My father and step mother spent most of yesterday afternoon at a Midlands Hospital for a routine chat with a consultant and pick up of medication. Late in the day he and my step mother retrned home, drained after a session with the world's third largest employer which left both fuming. I had a similar experience the other week here in Bristol. Say what you like about Harold Shipman but he does appear to have been ruthlessly efficient...he clearly did not fit in well in today's NHS.

My father and step mother who are both seriously ill arrived on time for a noon appointment. The consultant granted them an audience at 12.45. The consultant who was meant to be there was not and the stand in did not have any notes relating to the previous consultation
