Recruiters using seven-day working warnings to tempt GPs abroad


i left uk 3 yrs ago and it looks as though things have got far far worse...... so its obvious to me many of the reasons that pushed me away have not been addressed. its unlikely i think that i would be tempted to return unless the government takes a long hard look at itself and how it works with professionals. Working abroad has really opened my eyes to what a work/life balance really is, which is something i really wasn't aware of in england. as long as the "lunch is for light weights" mentality prevails in england and GP's , despite working very hard, are portrayed as lazy money grabbing amateur golfers, there continues to be a major risk of burnout. i value my life and family above all else and certainly won't be martyring myself for the NHS!!!!!!!
