At the heart of general practice since 1960

New generation must take over the baton

I am disappointed our LMC leaders, representing GPs old and new, have rejected calls for a wholly salaried profession, which would be a significant leap forward ('GPs split over calls for salaried profession').

General practice has to evolve, especially with women increasing as a proportion of the workforce. GPs of the future will want to balance home and work; many will work part-time and few will want to take on non-clinical work as partners do.

Change is inevitable. The old breed is dying and the new generation will take over the baton.

From Dr KS Pandher, GP partner, Kidlington, Oxfordshire
