The King's Fund -

We received responses from 218 trainees and the findings 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.
