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


Not many medical students go into medicine wanting to do General Practice! Most of us (not all) wanted to be a heart or brain surgeon. The changes in the contract in 2004 brought pay up and attracted more recruits. But all the negative press does not help one bit The way to attract candidates is to make general practice attractive. Otherwise I would suggest all medical students to choose hospital based medicine for much higher salaries on 4-6 clinical sessions a week and getting paid for 10!!
