Why are so many GPs under 50 leaving the profession?


Not just the under 50s are going it's the just over 50s who are going. Had enough of this ridiciculous paperwork tick boxing chasing hospital stuff care plans that have limited value told not to refer told to refer more 2weekers etc etc 51 next week and handed in my resignation and my work partner is doing the same. From 5 to 3 doctors. I do feel sorry for the remaining partners but my family tell me i haven't looked as happy as i do now. Time to be selfish for first time in my working career.
