There are 7 trusts in our network. So yes, 68 in the other 6 (larger trusts)

That is incorrect. There are 5 in my itu alone (I am an Itu consultant)

There is so much pressure to meet these targets that in fact, if anything, they are systematically massaged to appear better than they are.

A prerequisite for testing is the presence of known structural and irreversible brain damage for example a massive stroke or catastrophic trauma. The absence of cranial nerve reactions e.g. Fixed pupils/corneal reflex is not a feature of locked in syndrome. Unfortunately, when your brain stem is dead, you are dead. Not one single person declared brain stem dead by the official criteria has ever regained consciousness or made any sort of recovery.

The clinical tests used are entirely reliable unlike an eeg. The preconditions to perform brain stem testing mean that it could not lead to a false diagnosis for guillian barre.

That's not true. To donate with a beating heart you must be brain dead and by definition unable to breathe.

This is a very important point Ian. Those that blast Labour over the generous contracts awarded to GPs either forget or don't realise that general practice was in an extreme crisis before the new contract. GPs were leaving in droves and the workload was unsustainable. The government of the time glossly under estimated how much work GPs were doing.

Does this sound familiar? After 10 years of clawing back, the take home pay of all but a minority of successful GP partners has steadily dwindled. The administration related to CQC and revalidation is destroying the profession and once again there is a massive crisis in recruitment and retention.

The word on the ground is that the new JD contract is widely unimplementable on a practical level and trusts are struggling to even provide equivalent cover under the new rota rules let alone increase weekend cover (http://www.hsj.co.uk/topics/workforce/trusts-fear-impact-of-junior-contract-on-services-training-and-bottom-line/7004271.article?blocktitle=Workforce&contentID=20103).

It is a shambles from start to finish and they need to put on hold and go back to the drawing board.
