Top GP issues mental health warning as 400 doctors die by suicide

Comment

And who exactly takes responsibility for what has been happening where doctors reach the end of the line? The politicians will merely say ‘we didn’t force you to do that job’ which is probably why there is a relative exodus from NHS medicine. When expectations and demands become more appropriate rather than exponentially increasing then that may be a good start. I’m glad that I got out after 42 years working for the NHS before it finished me off!
