I havent researched this so my guess is that GPs earn somewhere around the £70-£100k mark. I will now go and google it and see how far off I am. Regarding the technology issue and also the access and effectiveness issue which has also been mentioned. I can only relate to my own experiences but to get an appointment at my gp i have to phone up on the day, as early as poss after 8am. Anything that isnt urgent isnt prioritised and you have to then phone up again the next day. This means that anything that isnt urgent is never seen because the urgent stuff takes precident every day. The referal systems take months, and the hospital consultants for non urgent issues are also useless even when you have been refered. Perhaps the system works ok for urgent and serious conditions like cancer, i dont know, but for non critical conditions its crap and there is no alternative available. Technology - why cant i access my complete medical records online in this day and age? i had knee mri's a few years ago and despite trying i never could get hold of the scan images. Also online appointment systems, why not implemented? Why cant i book an appointment for a non critical issue a couple weeks in advance online, like i can with an eye test. it just cant be done.
