GPs work just as hard as plumbers

Published 24/10/2011

So Matthew Norman thinks GPs have shorter hours than plumbers, does he? (Comment, October 21) I wish.

My typical working day is 11 hours long. And we do much more than 'scrawl amoxicillin', as Matthew might discover if he gets a serious illness one day.

Of course, I hope he doesn't.
