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


The profession has been changing rapidly over the last 20 years and it is deeply different from the way it was 10 decades ago. Doctors and physicians occupied the highest rung on the social ladder. Doctors were permitted to dine with the family during home visits. A physician’s fee was wrapped and placed nearby, for theoretically gentleman did not accept money for their work... A different job, a different place in the society. I suspect many doctors find themselves doing something that hardly looks job it was when they started practicing.
