ITV’s flagship breakfast programme, Good Morning Britain, has run a major piece on GP burnout based on Pulse’s survey on almost 850 GPs

The report highlighted the problems for GPs, and the consequences. Pulse has revealed that 15% of GP have turned to either alcohol or prescription drugs or both to cope with the stresses of the job

GPs have been sharing their stories with Pulse anonymously, including many who said they were so burnt out they found themselves lacking compassion, even when faced with suicidal patients.
