Commenting on the above survey, Dr Jonathan Fielden, Chairman of the BMA?s Consultants? Committee, said:
?The results of this survey show how demoralised so many doctors are feeling and how they believe constant government reforms and targets are taking them further away from their initial vocation ? to treat patients.
?The shambolic handling of MTAS has done untold damage to doctors? morale and the government needs to take note and listen and engage with doctors? leaders. A medical workforce that feels so downbeat is not good news for the NHS or patients.?
