Abstract
Little is known concerning the amount of time doctors spend doing different work tasks. A comparative study between four surgical departments in Sweden and England was performed. The time study shows that doctors in Sweden spent around 37% of working hours on administration and 40% on patient work. The numbers in England were 15% and 66% respectively. From the survey, only performed in Sweden, it appeared that doctors have insufficient time for all their assignments and as a consequence often deprioritize their continuous professional education. Problems within the administrative field have been identified and may be the starting point for task reduction.
