Over two-thirds of GPs plan to leave or reduce hours, finds DH-backed study


I already have reduced my hours by two sessions and I've haven't been a GP for three years. I don't want to be partime but 8 sessions of just seeing patients is too much. I can't see how I can do this for the next thirty years. And nothing is changing. The only way I can see doctors from not going partime to reduce workload. We need to ditch this obsession with 10 minute appointments
