Doctors back the Tories.
A survey of 301 GPs found that 48 per cent intended to vote Conservative, up from 35 per cent in 2005.
Almost half (47 per cent) of doctors questioned for GP newspaper felt that Labour's performance had been poor or very poor.
Backing for Labour dropped from 31 per cent to 23 per cent between 2005 and 2007, with GPs blaming a freeze on pay, "GP-bashing" and Government failure to deliver an improved NHS.
Liberal Democrat support also fell, from 19 per cent to 13 per cent.
