Patient safety at risk unless NHS creates 'right working environment for GPs'

Comment

This is a really important issue.my thoughts today are with the thousands of practices up and down the country (I am on call today as well!) who are working very hard in difficult circumstances with an under-resourced general practice and fragmented rest of NHS (whilst the promising transformation/ integration initiatives take time to embed). There has to be a better way forward. I really care about this issue. Burnout prevention is really important and a key skill that should be taught from medical schools onwards. I know some GPs and practices have found really good ways of managing these issues. Please send me any examples and or submit to bright ideas at RCGP. In the mean time these resources are very helpful.There are other similar resources. https://www.thehappymd.com/
