Tenth GP Worklife Survey

The aim of this project is to undertake a tenth round of the GP Worklife survey.

The National GP Worklife Survey is a national survey of GPs in England, which has been undertaken nine times since 1999. The survey focuses upon GPs’ experiences of their working lives, asking questions about: satisfaction with various aspects of their work (including physical working condition, remuneration, variety, and ability to use their skills); sources of pressure at work (including resource pressures, demands from a variety of sources, and workload); overall experience of their work (including complexity and need to work quickly); and future working intentions (including to increase or decrease working hours and to quit practice).
