GP Appointments &Negligence, Lack of duty of care.
Patients are being told that doctors are too busy to cope with more 20-minute appointments that they have restricted calls for 10 minutes and to only discuss one ailment per consultation.
Critics say it could put people off discussing important health issues.
People who are vulnerable who have ongoing mental health issues or have multiple issues may be reluctant to phone multiple times.
According to some surgeries dealing with more than one health issue can increase the chances of a mistake. (A GP should not make mistakes, although I have proof that they do, with my daughter being prescribed Gaviscon by the GP yet the A&E diagnosed my daughter with Multiple Sclerosis).
My calculation is if the surgery did an eight-hour shift and had 20-minute consultations, would be 24 patients a day multiplied by 5 doctors would be 120 patients a day multiplied by 5 days would be 600 people a week or 2,400 patients per month that they could consult.
Not everyone comes to the surgery every week or every month, so what are doctors doing if they are having problems with time management?
GPs are insisting that patients raise only one problem per appointment because they are so short of time.
According to the Mail Online (January 2017), those with multiple ailments are being banned from booking longer 20-minute consultations – instead of being told to book a standard ten-minute appointment for each condition they want to discuss.
A ten-minute slot would equate to 6 slots per hour multiplied by 8 hours, which equates to 48 patients per day per Doctor. (48 patients per day per 10 min slots x 5 GP’s = 240 patients per day x 5 days = 1,200 patients per week x 4 weeks = 4.800 patients per month).
Surgeries are increasingly introducing a controversial policy to cope with rising demand. But campaigners described the rules as ‘outrageous’ and warned they would put off patients from discussing potentially important health worries.
Practices across the UK have adopted the ‘one problem per appointment’ policy which claims it is to improve ‘clinical safety. However, there is a real increased risk that mistakes will be made and things missed as the Doctor may be inclined to rush, particularly if other patients are waiting.’ Other Surgeries have gone one step further by banning any long appointments for multiple health issues.
GP surgeries are under pressure from the rising and aging population on top of a recruitment crisis of family doctors. NHS figures published in December 2016 showed that in some parts of the country the number of patients on surgery lists has soared by 30 percent in just three years.
Katherine Murphy, chief executive of the Patients Association, said: ‘It is outrageous that patients are being told there are rules around the health problems that can be discussed.
We hear so frequently from patients who struggle to even get an appointment that I’m confident most would take such an opportunity to ask about a secondary or less-urgent health concern.
‘Our concerns are that patients will not be given the opportunity, or maybe put off, from asking for medical advice because of this rule, which is a very serious patient safety risk.’
Dr. Helen Stokes-Lampard, chairman of the Royal College of GPs, said she was ‘saddened by the move. She added: ‘For a lot of consultations, particularly for people with chronic diseases or any psychological element to it, to be pressured into ten minutes is really unhelpful.’
Note from the Editor.
In Consideration of the above article, the Editor (myself) who has multiple health issues wrote a nine-page letter to the GP back in May of this year. I sent it via email with an attachment marked as private and confidential. I received an email back from the practice managerwho said that she had read the letter (Not addressed to her) and that I needed to discuss my concerns by making a phone call to the GP even though it clearly stated in the letter what my concerns were.
(The GP could have phoned the patient (aka me) to discuss the concerns ratherthan ignore me altogether).
So, six months later seeing I never received a letter from the GP or a phone call, I happened to be chasing up a missing prescription for my daughter and I decided to kill two birds with one stone and asked for the GP to phone me only to be told I would have to phone back the following day to book a consultation. I replied just mark it on the system that I need the doctor to phone me.
By all accounts, the person I was speaking to could not pass on a message as I will explain.
I related that the letter I wrote in May clearly stated my concerns and that it could be marked on the system for the GP to phone me and that I should not be chasing the GP. The receptionist (male) said he would pass the message on so I thought…
Within minutes of the call ending the practice manager phoned demanding that I phone back the following day to book a consultation, she never said what time, but I presume at 8 am when the lines get jammed from people trying to make appointments for a good half hour to an hour, only to be told the slots are gone and to phone back the day after. This has happened previously to me so maybe the system has changed; I do not know, as I hardly ever phone the GP, I prefer everything in writing?
I said that the doctor should phone me and for the practice manager to pass the message on, who replied the doctor is too busy to read letters or correspond to them and that unless I phoned back in the morning to book a consultation the doctor will not be phoning me.
My reply was, I had to drop what I was doing today to speak with the practice manager that did not schedule a call and did not even ask if it was OK to talk. I continued to say I am also busyand that this call was inconvenient to which the practice manager raised her voice and in a stern tone said “Goodbye” and cut me off by ending the call.
If the GP does not phone me tomorrow, I will go out of my way to name and shame the practice and sue them for negligence for my escalation of health issues and emotional distress.
If I work into the early hours of the morning, I am not going to get up especially early to phone the surgery to ask for the GP to phone me when I have spoken with three people in total that could easily put a post-it note, on the GP’s desk to phone me. It is not difficult.
The overall way they treat their patients does not surprise me why people get agitated. If I were an elderly person, I would not be ringing back, this could then cause the persons’ health to deteriorate even more.
I speak on behalf of everyone who has problems speaking to their GP for multiple health issues. If a letter has been received and as per the phone call today which confirmed my ailments have been put on the system, you would think the care of duty by the clinician should have followed it up, but they have not, which in my way of thinking is negligence.
I suffer from depression and anxiety I am an advocate for mental health and have a website specifically for disabilities www.disabledentrepreneur.uk
I am not ashamed to admit it, I do struggle with anxiety and depression most days and some days are easier than others.
I lost my ex-husband and a family friend this year and around May time, which felt I needed some support from my GP hence wrote the letter not only discussing my mental health but other multiple ailments. Had I have had suicidal thoughts you would not be reading this right now because of my GP’s incompetence.
Imagine someone with a similar health issue relying on the GP to get in touch with them, I dread to think how many people have had their symptoms get worse because of the lack of duty of care by the clinician.
I have now spoken to three people in total over my letter including a cluster pharmacist who phoned me to discuss my medication who also told me she had read my letter and I quote “The letter was very thorough which is what GP’s like”, yet no one has followed up on my health issues?
I did write a while ago about doctor / patient confidentiality:

Big Tech Giants Forced to Open Offices on Russian Soil.
Yes, you are reading this right companies, such as Google, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, and Tik Tok to name a few are being forced to open offices on Russian Soil.
A Bill passed by the British Government allows Russia to fine companies if they do not comply with their terms which means that companies that do not delete content banned by the Russian government could have their sites restricted access if they ‘discriminate’ against Russian media.
From what I understand if countries that oppose social media and restrict their residents, cannot expect the rest of the world to not read or view fact-checked content.
Now let me get this right and just for argument sake I build a social media platform and have more than 500,000. users I will be forced to open an office in Russia even though I am a British Citizen and have no intention of ever doing business with Russia.
So this brings me to the next question who owns the internet and what about free speech?
To answer the question of who owns the internet?
No one owns the Internet, and no single person or organization controls the Internet in its entirety. Yet there are organizations that think they have the right to control the internet as a whole. The internet is more of a concept than an actual tangible entity. The Internet relies on a physical infrastructure that connects networks to other networks. Therefore, the internet is owned by everyone that uses it.
What about freedom of free speech?
Under Article 10 of the Human Rights Act 1998, “everyone has the right to freedom of expression” in the UK. But the law states that this freedom “may be subject to formalities, conditions, restrictions or penalties as are prescribed by law and are necessary for a democratic society”.
This includes the right to express your views aloud (for example through public protest and demonstrations) or through:
published articles, books or leaflets
television or radio broadcasting
works of art
the internet and social media
I can understand regulations and restrictions not to mention licenses that website owners and social media companies have to abide by, governed by the laws in their own countries.
Should a country decide to restrict content in their region similar to the EU and GDPR then I understand about licenses in order for the content to be viewed in targeted countries. The General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy in the European Union and the European Economic Area. It also addresses the transfer of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas.
Surely though any country that forces a company to abide by their regulations in order for their residents to view your content then that should be down to the discretion of the company if they want their content viewed or not, pending the purchase of a license.? For example, if a country said to me buy a license or we will restrict your content, then it would be up to me to decide if I wanted traffic coming from the targeted country or not and I could restrict it on my end if I so wished or pay the license. The country that enforces the license could also restrict the content if a license was not purchased.
You can turn a WordPress Site into a Community Social Media Platform Using BuddyPress Plugin.
WordPress is the easiest to use the platform to build your own social network using the free BuddyPress plugin. It is super flexible and integrates beautifully with any kind of WordPress website. You’ll need a self-hosted WordPress.org website to start using BuddyPress.
Physical Office on Foreign Soil.
However, to be forced to physically open an office in a foreign country is beyond ridiculous. However, with the rules of GDPR that came into force on 25th, May 2018 most website owners added cookie banners and privacy policies whilst others blocked people in the EU from visiting their sites. Here is an example of one site that restricts EU users: https://www.wfla.com/
So how is it that Russia has any say in what BIG Tech Giants can and can’t do unless they are sponsoring and investing in them in some way? The move is to stop any company from promoting propaganda about Russia and that is fair enough in itself.
The 13 foreign and mostly US technology companies must now be officially be represented on Russian soil by the end of 2021 or could face possible restrictions or outright bans. If anything the website owner could restrict a country from gaining access and that is what I would do if I were in the Big Tech Company’s shoes?
Roskomnadzor, Russia’s communication regulator enforced demands that even companies that already have Russian offices will need to register online accounts with the regulator to receive user and regulator complaints, according to Reuters. All of the social media companies named, including the messaging app Telegram, have reportedly been fined this year for failing to delete content that Russia considered illegal.
I agree that all social media giants should stop the propaganda and fake news. However, if the news is fact-checked there is no reason for it not to be published. It stands to reason the social media giants should also remove content that is prohibited, such as drugs, pornography, suicide, and terrorism, or any criminal activities, you do not need the likes of Russia to tell you that and it is the responsibility of the website owner to do their due diligence and be responsible to protect its users from ever accessing anything that is deemed illegal. With High-Tech AI Algorithms, it is easy for robots to scan millions of articles daily and flag them for deletion.
This comes as Russian authorities tried to crack down on social media companies in the wake of protests following the arrest of Russian opposition leader Aleksei Navalny. Furthermore, a court in Moscow filed a lawsuit against Telegram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, and Google accusing the social media platforms of failing to remove content calling for teenagers to attend unauthorized protests.
Roskomnadzor also announced that it was restricting its citizens’ access to Twitter, accusing the American company of failing to remove thousands of posts relating to drugs, homophobia, pornography & enticement to unauthorized illegal protests.
Apple, which monopolizes the mobile applications market in Russia has been targeted for alleged abuse of its dominant position. Roskomnadzor said company’s that violate the legislation could face advertising, data collection, and money transfer restrictions, or outright bans.
If I were Apple I would not sell my product to Russia. I have clients that only ship to the UK, it is their prerogative at the end of the day although I am sure Welsh produce would be welcomed to the rest of the world.
Apple and Google in September removed an app meant to coordinate protest voting in the Russian elections. The Russian government has previously said that Moscow had no desire to block anyone or anything, but stressed that companies needed to follow Russian law.
Data that is used by Russian residents should be stored on Russian Servers according to Russia who has imposed repeated fines for banned content. Russia is promoting its domestic tech sector over Silicon Valley alternatives, proposing taxes on foreign-owned digital services, tax cuts for domestic IT firms, and requiring smartphones, computers, and other devices bought in Russia to offer users Russian software by default.

Amazon has announced today they will not be accepting Visa payments from Brits from 19th January 2022.
This comes to light because of Visa’s high fees for processing card transactions.
Amazon has supposedly told its customers today that it will no longer be accepting payments via this method and that all customers need to update their credit card details so that their subscriptions do not become affected.
Amazon has disputed the costs and has stated that the prices should be going down because of “technological advancements,” the online retailer will still accept debit cards, including Visa, and non-Visa credit cards.
An Amazon spokesman said, “The cost of accepting card payments continues to be an obstacle for businesses striving to provide the best prices for customers. These costs should be going down over time with technological advancements, but instead, they continue to stay high or even rise. As a result of Visa’s continued high cost of payments, we regret that Amazon.co.uk will no longer accept UK-issued Visa credit cards as of January 19th, 2022. With the rapidly changing payments landscape around the world, we will continue innovating on behalf of customers to add and promote faster, cheaper, and more inclusive payment options to our stores across the globe.”
On the flip side, a Visa spokesperson said, “UK shoppers can use their Visa debit and credit cards at Amazon UK today and throughout the holiday season. We are very disappointed that Amazon is threatening to restrict consumer choice in the future. When consumer choice is limited, nobody wins. We have a long-standing relationship with Amazon, and we continue to work toward a resolution, so our cardholders can use their preferred Visa credit cards at Amazon UK without Amazon-imposed restrictions come January 2022.”
From the Editor.
For the consumer, this will become an inconvenience if they wish to continue to use Amazon and do not have an alternative payment method.
I do have a recommendation, but first would like to say I am not affiliated or get any monetary compensation for my recommendation with this bank or “Mastercard“, however, I have been a customer of “Cashplus” from the time they first started out in 2005.
Not only has this challenger bank become an official bank this year they have also been shortlisted for “The Atffi Banking Awards 2021“, but by far the best part is they are affiliated with “Mastercard” and one can open a bank account without any credit checks online and be guaranteed an account even if you have a poor credit history.
Hopefully, whatever happens, it will work itself out in the end, but Visa is naive to think that consumers will not be looking for alternative credit/debit card providers to counteract the problem facing them. Furthermore, I disagree with their statement that nobody will win this war as the consumer is astute and will not think twice about changing providers.

The world of professional speaking can be incredibly lucrative. No matter where you are in your career, it can be worthwhile to turn your skills into a formal business. Whether you decide to create a business for just yourself — or for a group of expert speakers — your venture can pay off big time.
Before launching your new company, it is important to do your research, if you’ve been thinking about starting a professional speaking business.
Not streamlining essential processes
Too many new entrepreneurs spend more time on tasks than needed. There is an abundance of apps, online platforms, and software that can help you do almost anything for a fraction of the time it would normally take. From day one, aim to streamline essential processes for maximum efficiency.
By far, one of the best time-saving tools is invoicing and scheduling software. This will give you a clearer picture of your billable hours and availability for gigs and projects so you can better manage your bandwidth. Better still, you can batch-process invoices so you save time and maybe even get paid quicker. And finally, you can track and pay expenses with ease.
Trying to do all business-related tasks with no assistance
Another major mistake that a large percentage of new entrepreneurs make is trying to do everything themselves. Despite the benefit of saving money, trying to tackle duties such as customer service, graphic design, copywriting, event bookings, and IT work is draining. No one has enough hours in the week to run a business solo. Attempting this can lead to burnout, which may ultimately lead to the closure of your company.
Instead, opt to outsource core duties. On almost any budget, you can hire freelancers for the exact tasks you need. Whether you contract for several hours of work per week or full-time services is completely up to you and your needs.
Forgetting to schedule off days
Closely related to trying to handle all business-related tasks yourself is the mistake of forgetting to schedule time off. When you work as your own boss, you don’t have anyone giving you a vacation day/PTO allotment. Driven business owners may overlook this aspect of running their company, and work seven days a week.
For your health — and for the well-being of your organization — plan time to rest and recharge. This is especially important if you will also be booking speaking engagements for yourself in the near future. Earning an outstanding reputation largely depends on your ability to perform. Exhausting yourself will lead you to show up as less than your best, which isn’t beneficial for anyone.
Not marketing your business to the fullest
Don’t be shy in getting your name out there. Whenever you are presented with an opportunity to market your business and/or speaking services, take it. Marketing your business to the fullest is essential for getting your name out there, and for lining up high-paying speaking events. Regularly post on social media to market yourself. If you need some help in this area, you can hire social media management services through online job platforms. Before hiring a candidate, review their experience and feedback for past work.
Avoiding networking opportunities
As a speaker, one of the best places to promote your services is at networking group events. While online marketing is certainly important, networking events will help local business leaders learn more about you. They’ll also get a firsthand look at your presentation style and speaking topics.
Turning your passion and talent for speaking into a business is a wonderful way to make a living. Utilizing the tips above can help you fast-track this goal and book your first engagement even quicker.
Motivation is the strategy to initiate, guide, and maintain goal-oriented behaviors. Motivation is the driving force behind human actions it is about the ways you and your business can encourage yourself and your staff to give their bestperformance. Motivation is not just about Business it is about empowering and inspiring oneself to do better, which in turn is passed down to your workforce. Motivated staff care about the success of the business and work better. A motivating workplace results in improved quality as the staff takes greater pride in their work and turns out great results.
However in some cases people especially my family and friends have never understood me when it comes to running a business, after all, they have never had a business of their own.
So when I decline meetups and am content with Skyping they do not support me and come up with advice on how it is not healthy for me to be working from the moment I wake to the moment I fall asleep.
I personally do not listen to people giving me advice, as they may have many opinions to make but may not be experts in the topic of discussion. Unless I am speaking with an expert, someone else’s opinion is simply their own. It does not matter what other people think, what you think is the most important.
As the following interview on Elon Musk explains why he is a workaholic just like me. I can relate to so many things he said and it may also be relatable to you.
Sitting around a dining table chatting about life is a waste of time for me personally, time that can be better spent helping my business evolve. People that cannot see my vision and are not supportive of me, have no right to be dining with me. In fact, I conducted a social experiment a while back and wrote about it called “Support & Encouragement“. It was disheartening to see not one person from my close-knit circle did not respond.
So the other day I reached my limit of 5K friends on Facebook and asked people in my close network of friends and family to subscribe and follow me on other social media channels and again strangers I have never met have the decency to follow me but my family and actual friends have not.
People who are not supportive of you may think of themselves as better than you they may feel they are privileged and like to see you struggle and just wait for you to fail or they could be envious of you. Remember when you reach your goals they will then want to know you.
My business is precious to me I have spent long tireless hours and money building it and will not allow anyone to stand in my way. My business is my baby which needs nurturing. My business model is digital marketing, mentorship, and website design for “People in Business” and people who are Disabled Entrepreneurs.
I would never work these hours for a job I did not love. I believe in helping people and if I can become a good teacher hopefully this will inspire other people to do the same.
If you are wondering why I am an advocate for disabilities is because both myself and my daughter have some form of disability. However, this has not stopped me from doing my work or my daughter doing hers, we have learned to manage our disabilities and work around them.
My ultimate goal is to cure myself and then teach people how I did it. I have started my journey and once I recover I will teach people and tell my story.
I am learning about self-hypnosis which I wrote about on my other blog, how this type of therapy is not available on the NHS, hence it has never been offered to me in the 30 years I have been a sufferer of OCD. Not every person can be hypnotized it does not work for everyone. But if you have a strong enough mindset to believe it will happen, then through the power of suggestion, anything is possible.
Some motivational speakers talk about dream boards. I agree to a certain degree you have to visualize what you want and set goals to achieve what you desire. Scripting your thoughts in a journal every day and using the present tense, you are paving your path to your destiny. You also have to believe that whatever you want can be achieved providing you repetitively every day think and talk about or self-hypnotize yourself into manifesting it.
Empowering oneself and others involves identifying, nurturing, and utilizing strengths. Promoting constructive motivational resources in oneself and others can teach us how to acknowledge and repair weaknesses and vulnerabilities.
My chapter has just started and will post more motivational articles in due course.
