General practitioners (GPs) in the U.K. frequently cite heavy workload as a major source of work-related stress.
However, there is little direct evidence either to support this claim or to suggest whether the source of this stress lies in the amount, or rather the type, of work undertaken.
The present paper uses a within-subjects design to address these issues in the surgery context.
Over a two-week period three GPs gave ratings of subjective workload following each of their surgeries (N=20-23).
Correlational analysis showed a wide range of surgery characteristics to predict the GPs' reactions, including the length of surgeries, the number of consultations, the number of re-presentations, and the number of follow-ups and investigations requested.
