UK GPs more stressed and dissatisfied than international colleagues


Said it before and will keep saying it until the cows come home. Make appts min 15min, same hours, less patients, same pay. Results in less appts but more worker satisfaction and less stress. Job becomes more appealing, more FY2's apply for it as it becomes desirable, number of GP's increases, appointments increase problem solved and everyone happy. One issue is this is a longterm plan but as everyone knows NHSE and government only want quick fixes and private tenders so never going to happen. RCGP don't care - leadership only looking to get gongs and colouring book deals.
