Social Prescribing in the NHS is a part of NHS 10 yr Plan. How will it affect you?
Well here is a video and documents to explain what it is but one thing it is leading to is Privatization on ‘speed ‘ as the Government implement STP and ICS throughout NHS and a reworking of the GP Contract. will it affect us all of course it will under this regime who are flogging the crown Jewels of to leave us with an Americanized welfare system of two tier. The insurance lobbies are waiting patiently to make a killing while many wont be able to access quality health care as under the NHS that was created as part of the Welfare State delivered to us by Nye Bevin.
My Interview with Dr Gill:
I asked Dr Gill How he thought the relationship between patient and claimant could be damaged with the new GP Contract which every GP will have to sign up to in May 2019.
I also asked him about social prescribing and its potential impact on patients who need state support and claim Social Security.
“He described to me that Patients are already coming to surgery with anxiety and depression or ill health due to hostile environment that austerity is creating, and the system is making people ill, or in a lot of cases more ill than they were. Making it unlikely they will be able to manage their conditions in same way they currently do.
He stated that perverse financial incentives for ‘sociopathic ‘ assessors are leading to really bad outcomes for claimants and pressures upon the public purse, as well as increased workload on GP’s whose patients need help with appeals etc. This contract will effectively making GP’s Gatekeepers which is not what they chose to be when studying medicine to become a GP.
He said the Government is driving a wedge between the patient and their GP and pitting them against each other, and that will most likely mean the good GP’s will leave while those without no consciousness will reap the rewards offered by the Government and DWP .
Social Prescribing, is blaming the patient for their situation and the whole treatment process of being denied to the proper care that the patient needs. I asked him about the potential that with ‘patient coaches’ (aka work coaches) who have too much power could lead to those who most need support and are extremely vulnerable ,are likely to disengage with their GP and fall through the cracks and could ultimately end in their demise which he agreed with my assumption. He stated that Patients/Claimants and GP’s are victims of a government who doesn’t care.
This is the tip of the iceberg of how it could impact on claimants needing further medical evidence support, getting a Fit Note if they are off work through ill health to claim state support, which under Universal Credit they would need to do so repeatedly.
The breakdown of trust between claimants and GP or other NHS staff has the potential to cause a rise in further deaths which have happened already under its predecessor ESA. That’s without the 120,000 who died due to poor care in NHS, etc as diseases previously eradicated are now making a comeback due to austerity measures and abject poverty.
This is Government Quackery on the cheap by unqualified people, dismissing medical opinion of professionals while eroding our NHS services and underfunding essential services that patients need and a NHS they can trust and flogging it to their mates. It beggars belief that the public would allow this to continue or collude with the government by being taken in about better services and cutting waste of NHS resources, when they have slashed NHS budgets for decades along with New Labour who are not blameless in this re PFI acceleration under Blair.
Your NHS is on life support, welcome to the American style health care system you allowed to happen, hope you got deep wallets or insurance which is the real end game , if not you will be one of those unfortunate that will meet a early end of life because you happen to be poor and can’t afford Insurance.
