Doctors and burnout

 

Sir, – A third of hospital doctors experience burnout, according to “new research” reported in The Irish Times (“Half of Ireland’s hospital doctors exhausted and overwhelmed by work”, News, March 13th).

But, as noted in your report, the survey on which the research findings were based was conducted five years ago.

No wonder the health system is banjaxed. – Yours, etc,
