With the shortage of General Practitioners still being an issue in the Primary Care sector, we came to think about why there is a shortage? And if it’s the NHS that’s causing you trouble, or the government, why not take a moment to think about the ideal life as a locum GP.
We took the liberty of accumulating the dream life for you…
1. Variety – So much choice!
GP’s have a full range of medical, psychological, social problems. Not to mention enjoying different practices which will allow you opportunities to work with different GPs, and treat different patients. This will help you build more relationships and gain more skills enabling you to have a better career.
2. Independence – All decisions are up to you!
Considerable day-to-day autonomy, you choose when & where. Which also allows for a better work life and personal life balance.
3. Money – Basically, lots of it.
Value with portfolio work too, but you’re also looking at £200K a year!
4. More clinical – in a nutshell less paper work
5. Time Off – Good opportunity to take time off and recover from registrar year.
Not to mention, NO EXAMS!!
6. Helping People – You’re the savior really.
The profession can be rewarding and self-fulfilling. You’re responsible for helping and maintaining the health of a large group of people of all ages. You can relieve someone’s pain, deliver a newborn, detect health problems that may otherwise go unnoticed and make referrals to see specialists for further testing and care.
7. Power – And lets not forget to be a GP in general is underrated…they know about everything.
Since general practitioners don’t specialize in certain areas, they diagnose and treat a variety of illnesses, diseases and other ailments that affect all parts of the body…so they basically hold all the power.
As you can see life of a Locum GP is one not to missed out on. Even a salaried life as a GP seems pretty darn great, are we right?
