Significant rise in students starting medical school seen for first time in years


having helped train some of these medical students over the past few years the responses are generally as follows - GP is too much hard work, i'd rather stay in hospital medicine, i may train as a GP then go work abroad where the pay and conditions are better , i may train as a GP but only part time as full time is too much and i want to do other things as well, like see my family etc. Good luck with the recruitment and retention guys cause it aint happening at the moment
