PRESS RELEASE: 1 in 4 doctors burnt out according to GMC survey

The Doctors’ Association UK (DAUK) is saddened to hear the results of the initial findings report of the GMC National Training Survey 2018. It details what junior doctors have been saying for many years, that they are burnt out, exhausted and often work beyond their rostered hours. In addition to this around a third of doctors reported that they had missed training opportunities due to rota gaps. At the time of the junior doctors contract dispute, grassroots doctors warned of burn out, understaffing and a lack of good quality training opportunities.
