Figures show widening shortfall in GP training with 20% of places unfilled


Impose another contract on medical students. They must work in GP land. I, as a burnt out, worked to the bone GP am actually amazed that 80% posts are filled. Last night, after 45 consultations,11 phone calls, 200+ repeat and acute scripts and over a 100 blood tests, never mind the vandalised window or the plumbing crashing, I went home with my eyes googling. I cannot understand anybody who is not a GP already and cannot leave, wanting to become one. There must be other parts of the UK that are sane, because my part is slowly becoming insane.
