There's little emotional gain from being a doctor and now little financial gain.
They don't realize those driven by money will now either work in a very reduced fashion or leave General Practice entirely....or leave the country.
This country has a toxic attitude towards those who work hard for money.
What do you expect from socialism bordering on communism.
GP trainees need more time in secondary care clinics and A&E. That's the only way to create true diagnostic ability, by seeing what needs referral and what doesn't.
I think this shows just how poor our country is in comparison to others
The NHS does not need it's doctors to go into research. It needs them to go into politics!
Can somebody please organise a capacity assessment for the health secretary?!
I agree with semiretired!
Admission does not prevent suicide it only delays it!

Resilience = another way of saying deal with it or leave
Clearly these GPs need to work on their resilience!
*that was sarcasm*
They are using a common defense mechanism known as denial
Pharmacists and paramedics see how shity the job of a doctor is.
Why on earth would they waste 3 years studying to be a doctor when if they really didn't like their job they could use that 3 years to go into banking for example.
Has anyone seen or heard an NHS recruitment advert on the TV or radio?
It honestly sounds like a recruitment drive for the army!
Because that's exactly what it feels like when you work for the NHS. It's like your fighting a battle.
Prevention is better than cure.
Avoid mental health issues by not working for the NHS.
Well what do you expect from someone who thinks improving login access will save the NHS.
It's quite simple really. Mr Hancock does not hold the competencies required to run a health care system. This should be treated the same way an incompetent doctor is.
I see no value in return for the money paid to you Hancock!
Police thieves, because doctors in this country don't have the balls to do that.
Which is precisely why many leave the country. Not only in search of better working conditions but also to work alongside those with big gigantic balls.
Just read the BBC news comments on this article:
The degree to which we are under the control of the general public is frightening and I quite frankly want out of this countries health care system.
Yes a plumber has a lot more freedom but they work in the private sector; and last I checked, access to free health care was not a Human Right.
The country now needs to start realising that doctors have worked far too hard to get to where they are now and too exhausted to go through the stress of organising industrial action that it is far easier to just walk away.
