How can I retire from my singlehanded practice if no-one takes it over?


I HAVE done it and it worked out very well . take a partner and retire for 24 hours. ask partner that you will come back after 24 hours. you would work for 16 hours a week fo 1 calendar month then it is up to you if you want to continue few session or call it a day. other option is to make an nhs employe to be partner and retire and comeback.. if your gp partner continue then tell him to buy premises or share of premises. you need to continue to use premises. it will give you notional rent till you use it for general practice..
