  • Young doctors take note.

    Enter UK General Practice at your peril. Either do something else or even better get the NHS to train you as a GP then emigrate.

    I was a full time partner for 27 years and got out early with VER and would NEVER ADVISE GENERAL PRACTICE AS A CAREER.

    Listen to these warnings from so many older doctors!
