Nuffield Trust reports on “Future Model Options” in Primary Care –  Is this an acceptance that the status quo is mad…? NHSreality accepts that any discussion and publicity about the parlous state of General Practice is worthy. Just today I met a psychogeriatrician whose female F1 (1st year after graduation) wanted to be a GP, but she has applied for and is moving to New Zealand and cites psychological stress and work pressures as her reason for leaving… this is being repeated nationwide..

About Roger Burns - retired GP

I am a retired GP and medical educator. I have supported patient participation throughout my career, and my practice, St Thomas; Surgery, has had a longstanding and active Patient Participation Group (PPG). I support the idea of Community Health Councils, although I feel they should be funded at arms length from government. I have taught GP trainees for 30 years, and been a Programme Director for GP training in Pembrokeshire 20 years. I served on the Pembrokeshire LHG and LHB for a total of 10 years. I completed an MBA in 1996, and I along with most others, never had an exit interview from any job in the NHS! I completed an MBA in 1996, and was a runner up for the Adam Smith prize for economy and efficiency in government in that year. This was owing to a suggestion (St Thomas' Mutual) that practices had incentives for saving by being allowed to buy rationed out services in the following year.
