It's not just hospital where GPSTs are used as 'rota fodder', you'll find in a few practices that GP registrars are assigned to look after the care/nursing homes (usually the sole doctor); apparently part of a 'learning experience' (read as partner's work avoidance). It's a Shame really as the lack of interest of senior partners denies the most vulnerable patients the opportunity to be cared for by the most experienced clinicians, a scandal quite frankly.
