What this article only alludes to is that we won't hit the rump of the baby boomer GP retirement age bulge for a few years yet but it's interesting that the cracks are already beginning to show. GP scarcity (as ever) is unlikely to be evenly spread and the politicians are unlikely to notice until the effects are felt in key marginal seats or the home counties. There is a further demographic problem when you look at trends towards part time GPs and the growing debt burdens of the under 45 group who are struggling with their mortgages and the need to 'buy-in', London being particularly badly affected.
