Health minister rejects request for compulsory GP training placement

Comment

Dr Poulter is right in saying 'No'. Low morale is highly infectious - if you force these youngsters into general practice rotations - you might scare the daylights out of them and they may never venture again into GP. Let things calm down and either stabilize or improve - that may be the time to offer them the opportunity to participate in GP tasters. Without compulsion that is - because human nature resents compulsion.
