Number of GPs retiring before 60 is decreasing, official figures show


They’re not retiring because there is nobody to take their place. After piddling away thousands on unanswered adverts for a replacement, what choice do they have? Dump your remaining partners in the mire by leaving? Face Last Man Standing bankruptcy if your partners have already left? Or plough on regardless, grimly accepting the misery of increasing workload and plummeting profits in a joyless job destroyed by over-regulation and infinite demand?
