GPs expected to provide 24/7 'decision support' under proposed out-of-hours revamp


Its not the money "Anonymous" that will encourage chap(esses) like me to jump ship - and quite honestly the money hasn't been that great the last 3-4 years - it's the workload that will encourage full timers like me in their 50's working 6-7 days a week to want to join the great sea of locum/salaried and become "ladyboy" GPs doing their session and going home at a reasonable time to do what ever normal peolple do like enjoy family life or have a hobby like keeping fit or reading literature. This is the excuse a lot of us have been looking for to go a few years early and stop paying in to NHS pension scheme until we want to reture properly. Folk I feel sorry for are the younger group of prospective GPs, few UK trained Drs seem to want to be GPs anymore again - I wonder why
