Ludicrous hoop-jumping is putting GPs off returning to work in UK


I agree with well explained barriers. Apart from returners from abroad, there are GPs who have retired but wants to return to GP with much reduced workload, are having difficulties in doing so. With all the clammer on increased workload and 'underpaid' , GP partners are unlikely to employ retired GPs( a vast resource untapped) who wants return but at a reduced workload --- I propose that the government subsides these post or even the CCG could look into a scheme locally with help from the centre.
