'If you want to vent, don't do it in front of a trainee'


HSL comes across well towards the end here. Howvber, I do feel that trainees need to be exposed to the full effects of funding on GP and now the new models of care can impact on certain practices unable to accommodate it. To censor younger GPs from the full nastiness of general practice will do nothing for their development. They need to grow into their role without being protected and take on the work head on, so they can learn what they should be doing in a 4 or 5 year training course in their first few years post CCT. Leadership and commissioning can come later.
