GP workforce shrunk over the past year in major blow to 5,000 target


The job is shit- why do it? The job is a blight on my life - why do it? These two statements say it all and nobody is listening. As a patient I want to be treated by a doctor that actually wants to come to work. If there are registered doctors prepared to publicly state that they effectively hate what they are doing the NHS is in much deeper trouble than any of us know. I resigned from my practice 3 years ago, it was the best move ever. I still work in the NHS but I do a job I want to do and hours that are fixed. For me more hours = more pay but I only work these additional hours if I want to not because I am forced to. It's time to call a halt to the bullying and denigration, resign and see what happens - people will always need a doctor it just might not be a NHS doctor.
