Managing a distracted GP partner

Comment

I think the advisers have missed the point: Clearly the complaining partners are jealous of the part-timer having an interesting life outside practice. To expect them to attend to practice matters on their day off from practice is ridiculous - they have a commitment elsewhere! If they are doing their fair share of the work on days they are there (and most likely more!), you cannot expect them to do the other partners' share of the work on their non-practice days too : besides, they receive less remuneration that the others for their lesser commitment - it is unfair to expect them to do more, and the partners should timetable meetings, etc, so that there is not a conflict with the part-timer's other commitments.
