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


Dear Fed Up @12.24 42 years old, 20 years in medicine and a GP partner until November last year. Now work three days a week as a salaried GP. For the first time in a few years I sleep well, I look forward to coming in to work, and I enjoy being a family doctor again. In the months before I quit I was seriously considering leaving the medical profession entirely - glad I didn't, it turns out that fixing broken people is just as rewarding as it ever was, but I have to say that all the money in the world would not persuade me to return to the crushing pressures of partnership.
