Nearly a third of GPs say they will quit within five years


It took me a while, but eventually I accepted that there was only one thing I could change about my intolerable situation as a GP partner. Out this year in my early fifties, still well able to do a reasonable day's doctoring. For all their surveys and public sucking of their teeth, none of the local or national NHS bodies expressed the slightest interest in my reasons for leaving or in trying to find ways to keep me in the profession.
