Rising TSH: thyroxine replacement needed?
More GPs need to lecture at medical schools to help counter students' negative views about becoming a GP, Dr Beth McCarron-Nash believes.
Dr McCarron-Nash, a GP in Leeds, told a BMA conference last week: 'When I was a medical student I never really met any GPs and all the ones I did meet only spoke about communication skills. I used to think being a GP was probably the worst job in the world. Now I think it is probably one of the best.'
Her comments came after new Government figures last week showed only a small rise in GP recruitment.
