Reimagining the UK’s shortage of GPs


Won’t exposing medical students to general practice earlier in their training just put them off?? Catherine I’m not sure it’s about making our own beds more comfortable more about going to work and not being physically and mentally battered by it on a daily basis. If I had my time again I would have done a hospital speciality but when I started GP training it was not anything like it is now. I love my job but the increasing demand and the expectations need to be addressed or people like me will not be able to do this job until they are 65. Burn out or emigrate.
