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


Our Cassandra wailing has done absolutely nothing but maybe these young doctors behaving entirely predictably and rationally and voting with their feet will finally din some sense of urgency into a few heads. I guess warning that something is going to disappear is a different state from the position when it has actually disappeared. It is odd that the easy wins to solve some of this like defenestrating the entire CQC, sorting out the law around indemnity, being transparent about rationing and generally giving us back our autonomy and leaving us alone are very deliberately being ignored. Vis a vis the criminal prosecution obsessed CQC - if the GMC can be made to behave then so can they. Diversify.
