Dear Sir or Madam,

How are they addressing fact that GPs and Doctors are being bought in by LAs and hospitals with sole corporate directors and are not in charge directing ethical practice as are no longer fund holders. .Why did my former one say was rationing and no longer had to use medical judgement ? Are they employing the not fully qualified, so can dictate.
Does it not make sense that when a Doctor does a Test he should be the one following it up as this is not happening itis receptionist at GPs Surgery .

I have met Nurses, Service Manager & other Staff pretending Doctors . In fact the 12 Medical Directors of Islington are based in surgeries . Mine who never met, said rather refer to contract than use ethics that was before cardiac arrest where specialist advice NHS/Private was ignored.

My LA/PCT & NHS are preventing Choice by using passwords and reference numbers using this to balance the books via appointment.Then removing recordsvia outside PCT/LA employees .

Why are they allowing those on remits and contracts to not record true facts by omission as put on computer. .I have also found this happening in A&E Depts.

Yours faithfully,

Julie Shrive
