That this House was shocked to see the survey results published by Doctor Magazine on the very low morale amongst general practitioners; believes that overwork and high levels of stress are seriously undermining the quality of service that general practioners can provide to their patients; and calls on the Government to immediately investigate the causes of low morale and stress with a view to agreeing a strategy with general practitioners based on the Doctor's Charter points in order to improve and protect patient services and doctors' good health.
