Less than a quarter of GP trainees to stay in full-time clinical work, survey finds


DecorumEst | Salaried GP17 Aug 2018 1:10pm I’m not really sure what your point is here. Are you suggesting exam pass rates should be lowered because none wants to do the job hence we should start employing people who are currently failing their exams? Or are you suggesting the lack of workforce is somehow something to do with institutional racism and if only this was fixed, everything would be fine and the country would be swimming with happy smiling hard working brown/black/yellow or otherwise not white GPs? I don’t thinks the answer Is to employ people who fail their exams and I really don’t think folk don’t want to work full time because of racism. It’s because the job is too intense and the resources aren’t there to perform the job safely. Getting into other issues and grinding your own particular favourite axe just confuses everything and encourages people to feel singled out, a special case and divides us for no good reason. The job is shit. End of.
