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


The tragedy is that GP could still be a fantastic job but the RCGP are making things a lot worse. However you look at it you'd have to be mad to prefer GP at present: Workload - increasing to absurd levels Responsibility - increasing "see your GP" Criticism from the press and government - increasing Pay - decreasing at an alarming rate Risk of GMC and legal complaints - increasing control over working environment - increasing General practice is on it's knees. As a medical student you'd have to be mad to sign up for sale to the corporate sector. This is not going to end well. PS Brain surgery is actually really boring!
