‘I understand why GPs feel so disenchanted’


Doctors care. That is why GPs exist. But at what price? Can we put up 12+ hours, 40+ patients, the hydra of GMC,Defence, CQC, never mind imposed Contracts, Penance, Neglect, falling % of NHS investment for more work, the basic unfairness and injustice, the papers and politicians and our peers like Field / Thomas. I cannot, so I am away. I wish all those good and kind and altruistic folks the very best in the future. But ultimately, the system is just unjust and for me, impossible. It may not survive, because till a few years ago, I put up with almost anything. But to be constantly criticized when working so hard is demoralizing. I wish the remainder good fortune.
