Please stop talking about £80000 "minumum" salary. It is nearer £70k amount with no maximum number of hours or holidays
This was announced and dumped in less than a week. How long was it planned for?
Was it a private company and a Practice or was HMG behind it?
Another waste of precious NHS money
I would have thought if the HMRC thinks you're salaried it may be difficult to prove otherwise!!
Salaried workers can still claim professional expenses.
I find it difficult to believe it will attract young graduates or retain those wanting to leave.
Assuming the "pension contribution" means the employers contibution that means the income would be just over £70000!
Before Defence subs and expenses
I'm a single handed GP who does 2 visits a week
I don't think this would give me much extra time.
When I was a trainee almost 30 years ago I think the great and the good in the RCGP suggested that the a GP should treat around 1200 patients. If there was adequate funding for this then that would have a much bigger impact
Who is driving this?
Is it just Babylon or is there HMG funding?
A bold, big announcement and then a "slightly" less bold deal. Hardly a surprise!!
If there is a crisis in GPland isn't 12-18months a little long to wait?
Why does it take so long??
I know it was first threatened in the 1960's but, I'm fairly sure then there wasn't an anticipated delay of 2 years when GPs handed in their undated resignations
Industrial action is supposed to have a detrimental impact!
What about Scotland?
This a prison service problem and a department of health problem
NOT a GP problem
When will ALL GPs get their defence subs paid? Or does this already happen in England ( promised in Scotland but not a reality yet I think?)
Pharmacists are excellent business people , I assume any savings by HMG will be short lived
I agree that they aren't a union but they should be supportive to " coalface" GP's Ideas ,Concerns and Expectations
( See what did there!!)
Too little, too late?
so worse off than before GMS2, with HUGE increase in workload and pension contributions. In fairness over 80%, of those who voted, voted for it!
Indemnity paid, yes please
