GP trainees put off career by negative messages from media and politicians

Comment

Start by stopping this culture of encouraging complaining patients to waste prescious time and resources, answering menial complaints about service provision issues outside the control of practices. Only genuine complaints of harm should be left which warrant investigation and learning. Stop the pushing of expectations and patient demand, and pushing unfunded services from hospitals (and even funded ones as there is no spare capacity),and then the services won't be under such strain that both doctors and patients struggle. Just a simple fix and start to making things better, and its FREE!
