GP trainees want to work 5.5 sessions a week in general practice


I think we have to remember what this means for new GPs. They're not lazy or workshy. They find themselves in an impossible job where a two session day is really a three session day. They have to do this job for the next forty years and are trying to protect themselves from burnout. As a result they're only being paid two thirds of what they should be paid. We need to get rid of the idea of sessions and move to a per patient rate. My two session 'day starts at 745 and finishes at 7pm. This is not two sessions!!! GPC get rid of the idea of sessions. All it does is devalue us and has eroded our pay. We need to be paid per patient contact!!!
