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


Agree with all of the above The issue is not about money It is about morale Morale is not bought by money in caring industries Look to some charities that do unimaginably amazing work on minimal budget... Morale is bought by shifting the environment in which we work Compassionate environments rely on some core elements Which include Sympathetic Motivating Sensitive Non judgemental Empathic Supportive of those in distress - building distress capability and tolerance An environmental change using these elements may not require as much remuneration .... very little of the above exists so you have a profession that feels of little value and with diminishing morale.. Why are we surprised? Time to wake up
