Quite a few people have issues with their GP. I for one get sick of hearing them moan. I know they are busy and some of the patients can be challenging but they know what to expect when they take the job. They are on a good salary and like consultants can earn a lot of money doing private or locum work. If they hate it that much they could always get another job. When I was younger we had one doctor for the area. He did a surgery, home visits and delivered babies. It's like people going into nursing and complaining of unsocial hours and because they have young children wanting every Christmas off. Sorry I am on my band wagon again.
