A third of GPs considering quitting over indemnity fee rises


I retired from General Practice nearly a year ago, aged 55yr 9mths. I had expected to work until I was 60 and probably beyond, even although the writing was on the wall. I hit a perfect storm, crashed and burned out. I had to leave. When you drive across Barton Bridge on the M6 northbound and wonder "is it high enough to jump" you know it's time to go. Having come out the other side unscathed, life is WONDERFUL. If you can get out of the toxic cesspool that GPUK has become then JUST DO IT. You know you can. Use your imagination and your innate intelligence. Be selfish, for the sake of your family and loved ones. Stop posting comments here. Nobody with any influence reads your wise words. They don't care. If you read all the Pulse archives you'll see that nobody's listening. Use your time to plan your own future away from the NHS. Retire, emigrate, develop a private practice, change your career...... anything. This will be my last message. Think about your future.... YOUR FUTURE... not anyone else's. Godspeed.
