Negativity in general practice 'is worst I’ve known', says RCGP chair


I believe in being HONEST with my registrars. I try to help them become an excellent GP. BUT explain that even with all the skills and knowledge, working as GP in the NHS will not enable them to fulfil their potential as a GP.They need to understand what factors in their working environment impede their ability to adequately and safely care for their patients.Without this knowledge they cannot make decisions about what /where they will practice when they have completed their training. If I was their age I would be looking long and hard at all the systems in other countries to find one which I can practice happily in . It would not be the UK.
