The crisis in general practice is unprecedented

Comment

So if partnership were so great - why is it the current generation are not becoming one. PS I speak to hospital doctors every day. Their stressors are different. And there is a general malcontent amongst all doctors. GPs though - are suffering +++ We have had 5% of all GPs in England through our service in 2 years. What does that tell you? The vast majority are partners - struggling to make ends meet. The other group are locum GPs, feeling isolated and lost. What is the current advantage of partnership ? We cant open when we want, have curtains we want, change our hours, change our referral criteria - we cant even decide who we team up with as we are forced into PCNs of CCGs or Federations making. Please tell me where the autonomy is? C
