    6000 new doctors in GP;
    50 million extra appts/ year;
    8333.3 appts per doctor.

    If all doctors take 5 weeks holidays and 1 week study leave per year:
    8333/(52-6)=181 appointments per week.

    In comparison,
    I do 50-60 per week; 2500 per year. Working 3 days a week.

    Assuming they schedule their clinics similarly, they'll all need to work 9 days a week to fit it all in.

    These new guys are good!
