Stop med school GP 'banter' to boost recruitment, says RCGP

Comment

Ivan I think positive talk works for people in marketing and politics and other make believe parts of life. Most medics pride themselves on intellectual honesty. Medics overall have been self critical about some of the the failing of medical school and training and the impact it is having on young dr's. But we are clear that political leadership ( or the lack of ) is destroying the core benefits of general practice. Someone mentioned continuity of care - most young doctors's now refuse to recognize how important it is - because it conflicts with their choice of medical lifestyle - i,e to be part time. We should not construct fake positive stories - there's BS around without us contributing to it.
