Over 80% of GPs say workload has worsened since GP Forward View


I think they forget that most GPs have other options. The worse our working life gets, the more favourably we consider those options. They need to get a grip on this very quickly because we are haemorrhaging our GP workforce. Once GPs make the decision to leave they are very unlikely to come back. We may have even gone past the point of no return. The Government may not like GPs but they cannot run a health service without us. They thought they would recruit abroad, or replace us with other practitioners. All these schemes have been dismal failures.
