Towards a Better Life - Community Health
A GP in rural Somerset and one in Kentish Town, London, reflect on “what is a General Practitioner in the 1980s?”
A look at the working lives of GPs in rural and urban areas of England – from the perspectives of a “single-handed doctor” in the village of Porlock, who has only two free evenings a month, in comparison with a member of a bustling team practice in north London, where there’s a frequently changing patient list.
