'The GPs who don't even know your name'? These patients would beg to differ...


Anonymous 7.37pm - then please stay at your practice ! And encourage your colleagues to stay ! The problem is when there is a rapid turnover of salaried GPs, such as has been at our surgery, that it is impossible for them to get to know the patients. Two of the earliest ones who were very good left to become partners at other practices - they might have stayed had they been offered partnerships at our practice. One of them spoke to me before he left and said he wanted to have more say in how the practice was run but he couldn't as a salaried doctor, and since the practice were not taking on partners he left.
