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


Anne Bedish, while I respect your comments, just because you sit on the PPG doesn't mean you have a say in how the practice should recruit its medical workforce. The partners probably have a large financial stake in the practice and need to consider all the pros and cons of taking on partners vs salaried. In fact it is often more expensive to take on a salaried than a partner. There are of course people who wouldn't take a partnership no matter what the circumstances, me included, you only have to look in the BMJ jobs section to see how may vacant partnerships there are currently. The way general practice practice is going in this country, things will only get worse and in the future you'll be lucky to have a free GP service.
