GPs to access free burnout service from January 2017


This is disgraceful, no employer could get away with this, it is only because GPs are self employed and therefore NHS England escapes legal and moral responsibility that it gets away with this. If an employer is causing breakdwons and burn-outs of its staff, it can not get around it by having a helpline. The only cure, legally and morally, is to stop whatever is causing the burnout. But GPs and their useless chocolate teapot union are too timid to see this.
