Primary Care Training - NHS - Game of Thrones-01

Game of Thrones…

There’s another kid on the block. Strictly speaking they are a new kid. New name, new bosses and all the usual. In realty they are just another. Another organisation promising us a bright techno-future of clicks not bricks. A byte-size future. Plug-in once… see the whole landscape of healthcare unfold before us. NHSX has arrived […]

Next problem, please…

I’ve stopped writing about time management. I don’t have the time to write it and you won’t have time to read it! But, there is one rule in time management that is worth mentioning. Do the thing you least want to do first. Get the unpopular job out of the way. Get the tricky stuff […]

Training Primary Care NHS GPs Why Are We Here...

Why are we here…

The more you look at the numbers, the more you delve, the more you can see the problem. There’s a huge divide developing between the north and the south. Although government spending is roughly even across the country, because of communication and nearness to markets, many businesses are attracted to setting up in the south. […]

Primary Care Training - I think they're all Jeremy Hunts-01

Show them ours…

The Duchess said; ‘There is something good in everything, you just have to find it’. The Tory election ‘thing’ is a bit of a challenge… something good? Well, Mum was right. There is. Well, maybe not ‘good’. More, interesting. The interesting thing? The way some candidates have used social media, to get noticed… get traction. […]

Over to you…

It’s about dependency relationships. We go back to 1896 when Karol Adamiecki invented the harmonogram. No, it’s not an early greetings card… … but, first published in Polish, which is why it took until about 1915 to emerge into the main stream as the developed work of Henry Gannt… the Gannt Chart. In the days […]

Their debts…

Headless body, in topless bar Super Caley go Ballistic, Celtic are Atrocious Axis of Weasel Freddy Star Ate my Hamster…. If you want your stuff read, you need a good headline. How about… Trusts are now so deep in debt, they owe more in bail-outs from the DH than they owe to PFI companies. Thank-you, […]

Do the maths…

By far, the most elegant of the disciplines is mathematics. Nothing much works without numbers, chugging away in the background. Look what a zero and a one can achieve, in a binary format. It’s the foundation of all computing. Look at the elegant calculations of the parabola that enabled NASA to take a man to […]

training primary care NHS the sooner the better...

The sooner the better…

We are obliged to wait. Not for a bus, or a new hip, although both are becoming increasingly scarce. I meant, a prime minister. The nation’s business is on hold whilst one hundred and sixty thousand invisibles, with no mandate, chose a prime minister for our country. Even a banana republic would be embarrassed… democracy? […]

Zip wire…

The main political parties are beset with inner wrangling. The Tories have lost 43 ministers, who, one way or another, have walked out, in a huff, over Brexit. You don’t have to be a genius to realise, the country is being run by the ‘B Team’. None of the cabinet occupy any of the jobs […]

Tough people…

The one question none of them can answer is; ‘what happens if you can’t’. That’s the big flaw. Every one, of the wanna-be prime ministers, is banging on about how they will deliver Brexit. Some, setting themselves a deadline. Most of them have a straight-line strategy; ‘renegotiate the deal’… that the EU say they won’t […]
