The Scottish contract doesn’t work for millennial GPs


There is a lot of difference in being a GP with their own designated list (usually a partner) and sessional, mobile, or part time GPS whether salaried or locum and not having their own list. The recent research showed patients not only prefer a full time vocational GP but they, the patients actually live longer. The health care landscape is becoming so fragmented and confusing patients need one clinician they can depend on. The partnership model still allows us to control our work and we lose it at huge cost.
