GPs consider 'quitting'

17th October 2007

A poll by the British Medical Association (BMA) has found that one in six GPs is thinking of quitting general practice.

The low morale is blamed on fears about NHS privatisation and the undermining of the core values of general practice. The BMA polled 11,000 GPs and more than half who took part (53.2%) claimed the position was worse than it was five years ago. Just over 63% said NHS changes over the past 10 years had made it harder to practise good medicine.
