GP workforce declines by over 400 in just three months

Comment

Regardless of these figures, practising GP principles are having major difficulty in recruiting locums, let alone partners. I think this says it all If the total number of whole time equivalents is genuinely going down this is only going to make things even worse for existing practices. It will become like the domino effect. We will see huge numbers of GPs retiring, moving to other careers, not choosing general practice in the first place or emigrating.
