Could prove more difficult to derive benefit from in the future as more GP’s reduce hours but I feel it does benefit many patients to have a GP who knows their history in more detail.

 

 

 

Burden of general admin, burden of deflected admin from secondary care, high expectations of patients in terms of service delivery, mopping up the fallout from delayed access to diagnostic tests due to Covid pandemic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Partners bearing the burden of an increasingly demanding and expanding workload is likely contributor to early retirement / reduction in hours across the board.  Consideration of an interim role between salaried – partner might appeal, how this would be devised I am not sure about.
