One in ten partner vacancies left unfilled for a year

One way to reduce the recruitment crisis would be to reduce the workload pressure on those GPs who are partners to prevent them from leaving partnership. At the age of 54 I left my partnership a few months ago to prevent becoming burnt out. I cant believe how much better life is as a freelance GP. Sad, as I was committed to my practice and patients and assumed I would remain a partner till aged 60. No going back now though....
