Headline

GP 'resilience' coaches to persuade burnt out colleagues to stay on

Comment

It's a classic diversionary tactic which puts the blame for the problem onto GPs being unable to cope instead of the NHS accepting any responsibility for making the job unsustainable. In addition, it allows NHSE to claim it is working to alleviate the GP crisis. Any GP who takes part in being trained as a resilience coach is therefore betraying the whole profession by taking part in NHSE's diversion of the blame onto GPs. Sadly, I expect there will be plenty cardies who can't wait to take part and who can't see the big picture - Lenin called them "useful idiots" and there is no shortage of them in GP land.
