Diminished interest in becoming a GP Diminished interest in remaining a GP Increased interest in retiring early Increased interest in becoming part time Increased interest in travelling abroad Increased intensity of punitive regulation Diminished funding in real terms Increased rates of ill health and mental health Increased rates of self harming behaviours So simply write a strategy to address these and in truth you could turn things around A strategy that puts less controls in place and more freedoms recognising that Primary Care is complex where detailed complicated solutions do not fit - establish some "simple rules" Wake up!
