1st February 2012

Researchers surveyed more than 564 doctors in Essex and say it is the largest assessment of the profession using an established test of burnout called the Maslach Burnout Inventory. The study also found many GPs feel disengaged and have a reduced sense of personal achievement. The report, which will be published in the BMJ Open journal, concluded that “a significant group of doctors is in trouble”.
