NHS England invests £10m in bid to keep new GPs from leaving profession


With the best will in the world I really can’t get too excited about the plight of older GPs whos pension pot is so fat they have a full allowance and it ‘isn’t worth their while working’. Really my heart bleeds that you have a million in your pension and you ‘might just as well retire’...urr I feel for you I really do. Whilst this no doubt is having an impact I think we should be focusing most on other reasons why people are leaving ..including the younger suckers who haven’t an ice cubes chance in hell of ever retiring with the kind of benefits those complaining about the life time allowance can shortly look forward to. Making a self fews ‘comfy retirement’ even more comfy isn’t top of my list ... my retirement is going to be shite..not comfy in the least...and I’ve got a lot more years to give than the late fifties folk.
