Dr Hamed Khan, a board member of the RCGP South London Faculty, has long warned that the profession is heading for burnout.

To secure the future of the NHS we need the best doctors - and more of them - to enter general practice, he says, yet the number of applicants has declined.

‘GPs encapsulate the abilities which all doctors should ideally possess - which is why it is imperative that we have a key role in training them.’
