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


Why do doctors, who managed to achieve during the tumultuous changes of adolescence, stick the long course through university and retain their independence of thought and responsibility in the unsupported junior doctor roles, all the while funding and passing exams and bureaucratic assessments, suddenly need resilience training as a GP? 99% of the population would have left during the first term of medical school, let alone the first month of each 6 month hospital rotation for 5-10 years after graduation. Could it be the job is underfunded leading to intense working for those who remain? NHSE needs a bit of Matthew 7:5 I think.
