      hi we recruit doctors all the time, we are really keen for more people to go into Medicine and particularly into shortage areas such as Psychiatry, General Practice and Community Paediatrics. Medicine is a fantastic career. Really rewarding and interesting. Work looking into. Takes about 10 years to become a GP and length of training depends on the specialty you go into or if you train flexibly etc. This page is useful to see how the training breaks down https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/explore-roles/doctors/length-training
