What can be done to solve the GP recruitment crisis?


Where is the attraction of General Practice? When you look at your hospital colleagues who are treated as equals; sure you may be at the bottom but no one thinks of you as a "longterm servant" you do your time and move up unlike those Partners who have abused the salaried GPs . Yes they talk about the generous BMA contract but hardly a single salaried post is given that in its fullness. Of course the Partners are working harder than those slacking no prospect salaried colleagues... choke! choke! ...but the reality is just not true. The junior doctors look at this model and turn away. Partners versus Salaried has filtered into reality and the job looks fixed/poorly paid and unglamourous not so the consultant. Is anyone surprised????
