BMA backs ID cards
I wonder how many of my GP colleagues, while being strongly urged by our representatives to vote for the new contract, were made aware that this would result in all of our pay for non-core work effectively being reduced by 14 per cent. This is the result of being compelled to fund our own employers' superannuation contribution.
In my experience GPs were not aware of the effect this would have on their earnings.
This is a huge failure by our negotiators. Dr Meldrum and his colleagues must go back to the negotiating table and properly represent the interests of their colleagues.
