GPs in deprived areas 'appear less empathetic'

Comment

Was working in a deprived area the first choice of the GPs?. Were they unsuccessful if previouisly had applied to better off areas. it is easier to treat poorer people with less respect or good quality consultations and treatments as they will not have the confidence to deal with it. Are less able doctors working with those who need the best because of snobbery and social class issues?
