High levels of burnout and workplace stress could threaten good quality training for junior doctors, a survey has revealed. The General Medical Council said that poor handovers and inductions, and gaps in rotas, should be seen by employers as telltale indicators of more significant problems in the workplace. The warning came as the regulator published a review of its latest national surveys of doctors in training and those who train them.
