DHSC: GP workforce will be boosted by fast-track courses for health professionals


Meanwhile the experienced GPs fall off the other end. New GPs (and I was one) take 9 years to train and then when they join practice need senior colleagues for guidance and they teach us old crusties a lot as well. I cannot see how short circuiting this training and support network can possibly help. These new GPlites will need so much more supervision and training to cope with GP work that I’m not sure I could manage my work and theirs.
