To engage or not to engage…?


Hi Nikki, I guess I am someone who should be getting targeted by these changes. I work minimally in general practice, working more in my area of special interest which pays less but means I go home not feeling depressed. However I do enjoy the work of general practice, and under the right circumstances, would love to be a full time GP. I’m not greedy, but I won’t do a job which makes me ill. All I can say is that the initial draft made me wonder if it was a deliberate attempt to destroy general practice. It clearly wasn’t written by anyone who had a sentiment that general practice needs SAVING. I talk to dozens of other GPs locally who are of similar thoughts, which if multiplied nationally, means there are thousands of GPs put off doing more sessions or becoming more involved as the situation at present is so diabolical. NO OTHER EQUIVALENT COUNTRY TREATS ITS GPS THIS BADLY. Major changes are needed Best Wishes
