Being a portfolio GP is the only way to survive


The author is merely shining a light on the reality of the pressure cooker environment of daily practice that we all suffer. Given she works tirelessly for her colleagues and thrives in her LMC work, her practices are reaping the benefits. This in turn means she can persist with her practice work. I believe she is also a mother to a young child, so before we all berate her for her paucity of clinical sessions, let's just remember she is committing 8 sessions a week to general practice in whatever shape or form that may be. Just because we're envious doesn't mean the author is wrong - quite the opposite, in fact!
