RCGP meets with medical school heads to discuss 'toxic anti-GP' culture in universities


Medical undergraduates are not stupid,they get to see how gps are treated and respected.I also suspect they have been reading the tirade against us from th gutter press and the general reporting agianst us.Last but not least they get to spend some time in practice to see what its like.They see General Practice as it is and make their own minds up.The powers that be including RCGP need to recognise what its like on the coal face and make our working lives less beurocratic and more fulfilling.The establishment cannot buck the market to make more people go into general practice there has to be somthing in it for them.At the moment there is a long list of cons and not enough pros to keep our numbers up on General Practice UK.The future seems bleak,If not in 5 year when the 50 year old leave,it will be even worse in 10 year when the fortysomething are burnt out and start leaving in their droves.Something needs to change for the better and soon.The RCGP are part of the problem .
