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


I qualified in 2002 and I'm afraid everyone from the statistics lecture (not a doctor may I add) saying "90% of you are going to be GP's so you don't need to know anything" to the professors and consultant never had a single nice thing to say about GP's or being a GP. That has no changed at all as far as I'm aware and in fact is getting worse. The RCGP, BMA and the toothless bodies who represent us have only made it worse and are just as much to blame. It is a crap job, with all the responsibility and no positives at the moment except being your own and setting your own work pattern, this too is unlikely to last. Consultants think they can treat you like their houseman. The resilient GP and fellow like minded GP's fighting back are the only things keeping me going. Not sure how long it will last. RIP General practice. Thanks for nothing RCGP and BMA.
