Partnerships scarce because of Government
I can see the frustration of being a salaried GP. I've been one myself ('Salaried GPs, stop moaning and start working for a partnership').
There is no sure-fire way to get a partnership - a lot of it is luck. But the main reason for lack of partnerships is the way the Government has dealt with GP funding, by introducing more APMS deals - no partnerships in these practices. I wish all GPs would challenge the Government over its destruction of our wonderful healthcare system.
Life is not so good as a partner - lots of stresses and not much financial reward. I earned more as a locum. The financial reward comes with seniority pay and the MPIG, which are on their way out.
