lol you must be a young RP or GDFM / MMed graduate.
this problem is an age-old problem.
which is why i left OPS anyway.

if you stay in OPS, it means
1) you are okay with anyhow treating all conditions and giving superficial answers to all questions
2) clinical care means nothing to you
3) you just basically give up in life and do the bare minimum, as evidenced by several posters here

if you still care about patients, and treating them properly, then choose another clinical setting to work in
leave OPS to those who are quiet quitting, and don't give a damn about patient care

They should really be accompanied by family or at last have a 20 mins slot

Some patients have so many comorbids , one look and you know they should be on SOC follow-up yet SOC only see them yearly and they come to ops with all their complex issues and you scratch ur brain cause u really need time to solve the issues . These are the bounce in & out of A&E kinds . You can tell why soc doesnt wanna see them more often as well. Ant tips of such patients ? I feel its not a mmed vs gdfm or lack of training or medical knowledge issue . It is actually time , what you need is time to look thru their pmhx , summarise and solve one by one , yet u have only 5-10 mins per pt

this whole SAB thing is a total joke
it really doesn't mean anything at all
just for old fogeys to feel good about themselves
no actual change in clinical care / management / renumeration

There aren't that many fcfp anyway, last I checked was ?200 (and not all in public sector or still practising) so don't think will have much of a cost.

And if term of concerns of consultation charges, and people not willing to see non specialist/fcfp FP , we can function like soc.
One consultant supervising 5-6 mo/reg. I ran specialist soc before, most consultant don't even see the patient even for 1st visit.

Please. OPS don't need more supervisors. It needs more queue clearers.

Why would they need more supervisors.
And anyway there are only that many supervisors you need.

There’s nothing much to supervise in a 5 minute consult.
Just repeat meds, Tcu 6/12
Hope they either die from poorly controlled chronics or transfer to GP in the mean time
