Co-op GPs' windfalls

Dr Simon Clay is alarmed at the prospect of having to work until he is 65 or risk a poorer old age. Under the proposed pension rules, 42-year-old Dr Clay, a GP in Erdington, Birmingham, would retire in 2027, 14 years after the new scheme came into effect.

He said: 'I hadn't made any decisions but I'm concerned I would have to work longer than I wanted if I was burnt-out or if I was ill. I'm certainly nervous given what the Government has done to civil servants.'

Dr Clay added he wanted the BMA to fight harder over pensions than it had on the GMS contract.
