Are GPs Given a Bad Reputation‪?‬ Illuminating Primary Care

    • Health & Fitness

In this episode we are joined by Dr Steve Taylor, a former GP Partner who has been involved in training 60 GPs throughout his career. Steve is focussed on helping get the message out there about the truth of what GPs experience on a daily basis – something that the mainstream media do a poor job of.
We discuss some of the stats and figures that Steve shares online and what the future of general practice might look like.
