The crisis in general practice is unprecedented


Research shows that the happiest professionals are those that have a skill that is in high demand and can charge a relatively high amount per hour worked. They also need to have control over their working hours and prefer self-employment. Interestingly they tend to be happiest when working by themselves, not with others. Guess who these people are? Plumbers and in particular those working on boilers and heating. “June 1, 2018 It seems plumbers are guaranteed not to get that sinking feeling every time they go to work… A survey has revealed that Britain’s plumbers are the happiest professionals in the country. In fact, 55% of plumbers said they were ‘very happy’ in life. It seems tradespeople are way ahead in the happiness index because builders were next on 38%. The survey was commissioned by Boundless, an experiences company with a 94-year heritage.“ “Those in the public sector are less happy than counterparts in the private sector”
