GP numbers decrease by more than 1,000 over past year


I agree with David Evans. This is not a gender issue. I am a male GP who has dropped from 8 to 6 sessions. But the amount of hours I do over my three is what some other sectors might consider close to full time. The job is incredibly stressful, tiring and demanding. I would prefer to be at work for more days a week, but shorter days so I might actually be able to see my kids that day. This is what we need to focus on. Make the days shorter and more enjoyable we when we are at work, we don’t dread going.
