Burnout forces almost 10% of GPs to take time off work as pressure on occupational health services grows


I work 50-60hrs/week but feel this is managable (for me). My family is complaining as they never see me but that's part of being a GP's family. Could I manage if the work load goes up more? Probably not. I will be leaving the partnership to do locum/OOH if this happened before I go insane. GPC are on different planet if they realistically think "40% reduction in QoF" will translate to anything like 40% reduction in work done by GPs.
