How Hunt’s admission of failure on GP numbers could harm practices


It is no surprise that it is proving very difficult to recruit overseas GPs. The NHSE and the govt is being forced to swallow the bitter pill. The fact is the GP work in the UK is so toxic with a very high regulatory burden, GMC, CQC, constantly changing work, years of restructuring and ever changing goalposts, dwindling practices income, increasing workload, dumping of work from hospitals, rising expectations that GPs will also be social care champions and not to forget a very high public expectations. Faced with these challenges who would be happily lining up to come and work in the UK general practice.
