More doctors become GPs in mid career
Doctors are increasingly switching mid-career to become GPs, the BMA's study of 1995 graduates has revealed.
The cohort study found 30 per cent of the 545 doctors are GPs, but only one-third are full-time principals.
Overall, doctors are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with practising medicine a result of Government pressure to achieve targets and a desire for a work-life balance.
