GP shortage fuelled by rising numbers working part-time

The head of Health Education England (HEE) said the millennial generation did not want to work the hours done by baby boomers. 

The average doctor now works a part time four days a week, when it used to be around four and a half, health officials said. 

As a result of this, the number of full-time-equivalent doctors in the system has reduced and part-time doctors has increased with people choosing value of life and not wanting to work the longer hours as their predecessors.
