A survey of 1,545 staff in general practices in South East region found that GPs and practice managers were the most stressed. GPs believed that dealing with difficult patients was particularly stressful. The relationships between the senior partner and practice manager and the GP-nurse relationship were seen as crucial.

The division of labour between GPs and practice managers needs clarification if the government's proposals for improving general practice are to succeed.
