UK GPs more stressed and dissatisfied than international colleagues


RCGP just needs to say that 10 min appts are unsafe and the minimum time for a routine appt is 15 mins and 20 for an emergency one but the recommended time is 20 mins per patient. You are the governing body representing GPs after all. Its then between the BMA and the government how it gets paid for. Its your job to look after us and yet you fail us year after year. Its not our responsibility to take on extra workload - that is down to the government and their funding policies. Stop dumping the past failures to sort out this mess back on us, take responsibility and sort it out. that means RCGP, BMA and the DoH. You are, literally, killing doctors, otherwise. every 3 weeks a doctor commits suicide in the UK. its a national scandal.
