Perhaps Ms Freeman could spend some time doing something about income tax too. Her executive have set the highest rates of income tax in the United Kingdom for doctors. Punitive taxation is a disincentive to work and is detrimental to society.
If you are Flybe tax can be altered in 24 hours. If you work for the NHS you are below contempt and can keep paying.
The health secretary has found his extra 5000 gps by 2020. An extra 5000 gps retired early due to pension taxes!
It seems penal tax rates are a disincentive to work and a detriment to society. Sin taxes are popular these days. Is the NHS a sin?
Let us go back to the future. Say 15 years. No penal pension taxes. No doctor strike or encouraged early retirement or part time working.
But will the tax still be paid on the 4th of April when it's due in SPRING (after the election )? Never mind though, the government will fund this largess from your lifetime allowance payments when you retire.
We live in a fine country with politicians of conviction. They will not be happy until we are all fined and convicted.
It was always rediculous that my most expensive piece of medical investigation equipment was my motorcar. As the patients would say, " in this day and age we can do better".
If they don't do OOH shifts at all they will avoid income tax an NI too. It seems penal rates of taxation can be a detriment to society for discouraging work.

Ghost patients hit the headlines recently . Allegedly GPs were profiting. Now we have ghost GPs. Who is profiting from this?
They say doctors cannot be treated differently and cannot have special conditions. We must all be treated the same under taxation. Then I remember lifetime ISAs, help to buy and an extra stamp duty of 3% if you own more than one house! They have misspoken. We are all treated very differently under taxation rules. It's time for change.
Try taxing idleness rather than income. See productivity rise.
In 2012 there was a doctor strike as Andrew Lansley altered the pension system. He unilaterally altered our terms and conditions. Now politicians alter the tax system to make us downgrade our own pensions and downgrade our own terms and conditions. It is hoping to avoid industrial action by asking us do it to our selves. Don't fall for it.
Just remember a fine is a tax for doing bad. A tax is a fine for doing good.! Thank goodness I am retired.
Q. What did the baby boomers do for us?
A. Their parents fought ww2. They paid for it.
It is silly to say you need to have been ill to be a good doctor. Wishing illness on anyone to teach them a lesson should be a hate crime. Would orthopaedic doctors need their legs breaking etc?
To be a good doctor try going to medical school, read a lot throughout your career and be a decent human being.
Medical care does not always go well but people expect a gold service for the price of rusty scrap iron. It cannot be done.
My illness was not educational, it ended my medical career.
I wonder if more men are affected by the LTA and annual allonce. Does the pension scheme sexually discriminate by taxing men more?
Wow, nine regulators for each GP.
We'll soon have the extra 5000 regulators the health secretary promised by 2020.
Regarding GMC investigations.
Is a preliminary inquiry not an investigation by another name? Preliminary inquiries would not seem to make any change. Just rebranding work and not saving any time.
Annual appraisal stopped me fitting IUCDs. I had done it successfully for ten years but it was decided I didn't do enough to carry on. There was plenty of other work to do. Everyone knows you must close a service to improve it.
The health secretary has just admitted that penal rates of tax are a disincentive to work and a detriment to society.
You couldn't make this sort of advice from the GMC if you wanted to.
Except make things up is what we are expected to do for revalidation and leave out the facts. Revalidation will be made up of fantasy ,hearsay , ineuendo and anecdote. ( like medical negligence claims) . So much for the scientific method.
PS Name changed to reduce facts.
We must empower the police with new stop, search, weigh and measure powers. It is so important.......or is this just a mumbojumbogram?
