The Final Report has now been moved to a PAGE.
Is the cup half empty or just half full? That is the question as the GP Manpower Survey carried during May and June this year (2015) shows that a surprising number of GPs now work a four day week of less. Only about 10% now work 5 days. One could say no wonder there are recruitment problems as doctors prefer to work as locums and not make a commitment to general practice. Having said that only around 25% of GPs are salaried.
There is pressure on GPs now to work a 7 day week. It seems from the result of this survey that that is highly unlikely.
Take a look at the Newsletter attached here.
A full report will be published later as the respondent’s to the survey receive a copy first.
Many thanks to the respondents and to the www.practiceindex.co.uk web site for supporting the survey.
