What are the skills needed for today’s successful GP career?
I am sure everyone’s view will be different, but from talking to GPs regularly about their careers, I found that I have changed what I place as most important. A good while back I might have said something like
- Good communication skills
- A feel for whether something is normal/minor or warrants more attention
- A love of lifelong learning
Although these are still important, I have found that recently I have been tempted to replace these by
- Setting boundaries
- Letting go
