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


Last year I reduced a session, this April I am seeing patients from 9 am instead of 8amand doing a 3 hour session instead of 4. Why - main reason - I took on 1000 patients but my local NHSE bosses decided to reduce my weighted list successively and only 400 of the new patients are paid for. My MPIG was reduced by 25k when they learnt he was taking me as a partner. I understand the privilege of being the only GP in UK to have an MPIG cut at a time when this was untouchable. My sympathy is with patients and my apologies too as I can't cope as I did. Time to pack up and even leave the country where you are treated as shit.
