For the last 5 years before the age of 60 years, 4000 family doctors have retired, that is, one of 10 representatives of the profession. And the blame is the reduction of wages and the huge workload at work.
The crisis with family doctors worsens the already difficult situation with the National Health System of Great Britain (NHS). In 2016/17, before the time (up to 60 years), 784 family doctors retired, compared with 384 in 2009/10. In general, over the last 5 years, under the age of 60 years, 4000 family doctors have left to retire, that is, one of 10 representatives of the profession. In turn, the decrease in the number of doctors increases the burden on the remaining specialists and leads to huge queues, when patients have to wait about 13 days, that is, 3 days longer than in 2015.
