NHS England's ten-point plan for GP workforce


Stop telling the public that GPs should be the go to for every single one of life's little problems and maybe we would have more job satisfaction. We are not magicians. Endless forms and box ticking to fill in don't help either. The Government and NHSE haven't got a clue how to increase the workforce because they simply refuse to accept the problems that are so obvious to all GPs. I think the best (worst) idea is taking another year of training just to do a part time course/certificate - do they really think people will jump at the chance to take a 50k+ pay cut (ST4 vs salaried FTE) to do a certificate that costs a few grand?
