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

Comment

Witnessed what happened the day after a GP suicide: patients banging on the desk, "Who will be my doctor now? ". My GP partner's death saved my life because I saw what it did to their family - but there were times when suicide seemed the only option and still now I feel I am a failure because general practice broke me. However, I am still here to watch my kids grow up. I was too ashamed to see my own GP as I was terrified of being referred to the GMC. There is no PHP in my area.
