GPs are very satisfied with the variety that comes with a career in general practice (Figure 36).
As in previous years, GPs spend most of their time in direct patient care or consultations (71%) or in other patient-related activities (14%) (Figure 38). GPs who own their own practice spend a greater proportion of their time in practice management and administration (10%) than non-owners (4%).3
More than three in four GPs reported the amount of time spent on care coordination activities (patient follow-up, case conferences, letters related to patient care, etc) has increased over the past 10 years. Almost one in two (46%) GPs reported a significant increase, and one in three (32%) a slight increase.3
