More than 40% of GPs intend to leave the profession in the next five years

More than 40% of GPs intend to leave the profession in the next five years Four in ten family doctors plan on leaving the profession or retiring within the next five years.

GPs are blaming increasing workloads and declining morale with half admitting they have brought forward plans to walk away from the vocation.

Some 42 per cent of GPs polled said they intended to leave or retire within five years, up from less than a third (32 per cent) in 2014.

Meanwhile, almost a fifth (18 per cent) said they would leave or retire within the next two years.

The findings suggest the current GP crisis is set to worsen, making it even harder for patients to get appointments. The Daily Mail
