GPs face long wait until retirement as review omits them from age-related 'risk' list


'I am in my 30's' Get out, do something else. I am really pissed with my self that I didn't get out in 2004 but the new contract gave us some hope that the GPs would be treated as professionals and our income recovered to a level where it was appropriate for the 50 hours + most of us were doing BUT the threats of QoF and the contract are now bearing fruit and the 'gains,' which were, actually levelling out, recognising the poor position of the profession are now all pruned back through the lack of investment. I have warned of too many patients, too few Drs too many hours leading to quality GPs burning out - it's real and >65yrs doing the same LMFAO- coffins or GMC and no pension claimed, taxman happy!
