Four in 10 GPs taking time off for burnout

Comment

Sorry , doing this on the phone. Public services will not pay more for GPs and Partnerships will rather cut services and posts than pay salaried GPs more than they earn themselves. Being a Consultant means you can boost your income, by non NHS work which is where the real Money will come from in the future. The big plan of politicians is to shrink the NHS, but GPs are solely reliant on their NHS income - unlike consultants. Don't get me wrong, you'll have to be a much better doctor to be a GP these days than a consultant who's possibly only specialising on pushing a camera or two up Someone's orifices, but don't expect to be rewarded for it.
