A tribute to the 9ers


Excellent article. It’s not just the hours but the intensity that has changed. I think of it like entering a war zone every time I go to work. It’s flat out physical and emotional onslaught- no breaks, no lunch or at best a lunchtime meeting and then back to the front. And it’s getting worse year by year. I had to reduce my sessions as it started to affect my health. And as you said, all my partners doing CCG, education etc think that part is a doddle. No wonder most newly qualified GPs want a portfolio career - which won’t be much help to many patients. Surely the PCNs will create loads of those posts again sucking even more clinicians out of the system.
