Winter crisis in GP out-of-hours services prompts call for '400 more GPs'

Comment

Pay properly and you will get more GPs, both in training and therefore in the longterm. I'm sure I read an elderly care plan proposed in England, combining GPs with Consultants, and it was planning something like £65/hr for a GP but £300/hr for a consultant. That is why no-one wants to do this anymore. I honestly believe it is too late and no-one 'on high' has a clue what to do and nothing is being done to avoid the inevitable. Young ones run off to Oz whilst you can, sunshine, happiness and financial reward for your hard work (not just criticism and vilification in the press).
