General practice is a mosquito-ridden swamp

I liken general practice today to working in a mosquito-infested region.

You are trying your best for patients but are constantly distracted by the little beasts that land on you demanding your attention. If you ignore them you end up with a nasty bite or maybe something terminal. In the past there were only a few flying around, but now there are hundreds.

When will our professional representatives give us some protection? If they don't it will perhaps be time to leave for colder climes.
