Medical schools 'should have funding linked to producing GPs'

Comment

I don't think it's just a problem with recruiting trainees or retaining senior GPs, it's also that many Gp Registrars who complete their GP training won't take up a full time GP job if at all these days. I know two colleagues who plan to quit medicine after they complete their GP training and another colleague who plans to enter another training program when he completes his GP training. With General Practice being the complete load of rubbish it is at the moment with phenominal responisbility, high risk, high stress, long hours for very very very little return I have almost zero interest in joining the GP workforce. Unfortunately I see no solution to this apart from the government putting a lot more money into primary care to provide extra services and staff to take some of the load of GPs, but this is never going to happen.
