Three in four GPs losing love for the job: AusDoc survey

Many of the 500 respondents said the pandemic had dampened their enthusiasm for being a GP

Three-quarters of GPs are losing enthusiasm for their chosen vocation because of their experiences dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, an Australian Doctor survey suggests. 

Of almost 500 GPs and GP registrars who responded to the poll, 75% said the pandemic had sapped their love for general practice, with only 5% saying it had improved their enthusiasm for the role.
