Revealed: The rising tide of GP burnout as NHS cuts support

Comment

GPs work incredibly hard and IMO should and can only do a maximum of 6 clinical sessions per week. Most hospital doctors are not as exposed to front line patient care - and get PAs for admin, study, leadership and so on. The sooner GPs accept we can't do it all - we can't be both the saviour and the scapegoat, the better. I am working hard in front and behind the scenes to change things. But we GPs need to change as well. We can't fix the system by working harder. We need structural changes.
