GP leaders condemn NHS England's 'wilful destruction' of excellent GP occupational health service


The cutting of occupational health services for stressed out doctors and the fact that a recent a recent GMC executive has stated doctors need resilience training like "soldiers in Afghanistan" in response to a study highlighting suicides amongst doctors under GMC investigation...... this reminds me of a verse from a poem by Rudyard kipling... "When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains, And the women come out to cut up what remains, Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." The cutting of these services is a disgrace especially given the findings of this recent study; It seems that doctors much like our soldiers are expendable
