GPs starting to contemplate whether they have a future in the sector
Leaving Primary Care?
NEARLY three-quarters of GPs across the UK have said that they have considered leaving primary care in the 18 months since Covid first shook the NHS, according to a new survey.
The data behind this figure has been gathered by Menlo Park’s November 2021 survey Tech & Primary Care: A Post Pandemic Panacea, which gave 11,000 GPs the opportunity to have their say on current general practice.
In the last couple of months, the crisis surrounding the primary care sector has been well documented in the national media, with many GPs fighting back against criticism aimed at primary care throughout the pandemic.
The results of the survey show that the issues have clearly taken their toll on GPs since March 2020, with more GPs starting to contemplate whether they have a future in the sector.
The survey also revealed another alarming statistic that 72% of GPs said that working in primary care throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic has negatively affected their mental health due to the increase in workload pressures that increased as a result of the pandemic.
