328. GP workloads
- Principal Investigator: Richard Hobbs
- 1 October 2015 to 30 September 2016
- Project No: 328
- Funding round: FR 11
GPs report the lowest levels of morale among doctors, job satisfaction is low, and the GP workforce is diminishing. Workload is frequently cited as negatively impacting on commitment to a career in general practice, and many GPs report that their workload is unmanageable. This project aims to gather an in-depth understanding of GPs’ perceptions and attitudes towards workload.
All GPs working within NHS England are eligible. Advertisements will be circulated via regional GP e-mail lists and national social media networks in June 2015.
