Future working patterns of GP trainees

Published: 18 May, 2016

As part of a recent report “Understanding pressures in general practice”, the Kings Fund carried out a survey of GP trainees, exploring their intended future working patterns along with their views on the pressures facing general practice.

Responses from 318 trainees indicated that a minority of respondents intend to work full-time in general practice; many respondents intend to have ‘portfolio careers’ (spending part of the working week on clinical work in general practice with the rest of the time spent on other work); and that the most commonly cited reason for not wishing to pursue full-time clinical work in general practice is the ‘intensity of the working day’ for both male and female trainees.
