The Doctors’ Association UK were saddened to read a series of tweets sent by Allison Pearson yesterday.

Over the last year The DAUK have frequently spoken of the GP crisis resulting from chronic underfunding and a decimated workforce. But instead of focusing on these issues.. 1/
Ms Pearson chose to detract from her abusive comments about GPs and instead shared anecdotes of tragedies that have occurred as a result of the crisis we describe.
We believe our patients deserve better.... 2/ #gpcrisis
There were so many more headlines that could’ve been chosen rather than the “lazy GPs” agenda - it’s not true. GPs are routinely working 12hr days yet still the service is overwhelmed. A review of general practice is needed to improve patient care
Sign our letter to @IpsoNews if you agree #gpcrisis and read some alternate views from people actually doing the job about where the problems have come from 4/

Please don’t treat us as cannon-fodder

We are over 6000 frontline doctors who are pleading with @BorisJohnson to intervene to ensure all NHS staff adequate personal protective equipment (PPE) when facing the Covid-19 pandemic.

Frontline doctors have been telling us for weeks that they do not feel safe at work. ICU doctors have told us have been carrying out the highest-risk procedure, putting a patient on a ventilator, with masks that expired in 2015 or even holes in.

#protectthefrontline #COVID19
Paediatricians have told us their stock of protective glasses and masks will run out in 48 hours, including in special-care baby units.
