GPs declare rescue package 'inadequate' and vote in favour of industrial action


I see my children awake only 3 days out of 7, I drive a £8,000 car, I live in a terraced house next door to families who don't work and scream daily, I'm overwhelmed in debt accumulated in university education, I am abused daily by patients, get snotty comments from hospital doctors, midwives, health visitors, cpn's. I don't even get a lunch or coffee break. I'm sick of waiting for things to improve. I'm not the only one. Nobody respects us, I have a worse lifestyle than if I stayed home and developed a drug habit. Resignation, bankruptcy, redundancy payments, it can't be worse than the miserable existence I live now. I cry daily I ended up being a GP and am ashamed to say what I do for a living when asked. FFS stop messing around BMA get us a decent deal or get us out of this dreadful contract.
