Country of origin: UK
Click for Full Details: bma.org.ukA BMA survey, published recently, shows the effect increasing workload is having on GP morale and, in turn, the potential impact on retention levels.
Nine out of 10 GPs regularly worked beyond their normal hours and more than half of GPs reported their morale to be ‘low’ or ‘very low’.
Yet the research also reveals that eight out of 10 GPs are changing the way they work to offer more emergency appointments to patients, despite the workload pressures they are under.
The BMA GPs committee says the ‘workload disaster’ needs to be urgently averted to protect the future of general practice.
The survey is available online.
