Headline

Training bosses introduce further round of GP trainee recruitment in 'desperate' bid to plug shortfalls

Comment

@Practice Manager 11.36 That's because it's a much better deal for the taxpayer if the cheaper physician assistants/advanced care nurse practitioners deal with the crud in primary care while the doctors who are alot more expensive to train are kept in hospitals.Considering how we are continually vilified and portrayed as the ignorant,greedy runts of medicine why would any young doctor with an ounce of self respect want to enter General Practice?There is only one thing that will bring the public,media and the politicians to its senses and that is mass closures of GP practices.That isn't happening so perhaps all this talk of a crisis is overplayed.
