One in ten partner vacancies left unfilled for a year

Comment

10:38am problem?..what problem?...bang on the money there. 10% of vacancies unfilled within a year.. 25% of all partnership vacancies unfilled for 6 months. Everything is fine..in fact his is pretty good isn't it? ??? 10:57am..no doubt they are using locums - the question is ..is this what they want? I'm frequently struck by how often some partners on here talk about 'salaried' GPs as if they are two a penny commodities piled high somewhere ready to plug the gaps for 'proper' GPs (i.e. Partners) when ever needed. We all had the same training...we all do the same clinical job...we see the same patients...we can all get sued if we cock up...we are all GPs...Salaried GPs are predominantly early on in their career...like you once were...and a fair number of them are totally disillusioned with what General practice has become and want out. You bet there's a crisis...and sticking your head in the sand and saying everything is fine is plan dumb.
