NHS England's ten-point plan for GP workforce


I'm considering retirement next year at 55 - I bet it will cheer a lot of people having a 'difficult' doctor out of the way. The odd bit is the fact that some GPs who are 70 and still hanging on tell me that I will get bored if I do so ! The only thing that may prevent me from closing a Practice with 4150 patients is an incentive that will give me payment enough to employ a full time GP and a full time nurse. At present I have a GP locum 5-6 sessions and a nurse only one day a week. Global sum of 21500 pm in contrast to other Surgeries getting av of to 31000 pm for the same number of patients in the area.Stop discriminating against my patients and that will be my incentive to continue doing my bit.
