  • Family pays tribute to GP found dead after suffering from severe post-natal depression

    Very sad indeed and my heart goes out to her family
    Both the complex increasing stresses of general practice and postnatal chemical changes are major factors in increasing risk of suicide
    I am sad to see the government intend to cut free occupational health to GPs - they will only pay if there is a fitness to practice concern with the GMC - a matter of short sightedness and shutting the door after the horse has bolted in my view
