How to avoid 'fat-cat' label
From Dr Christopher Jones
Dr Pelta's secrets of success ('Profile of a high-earning practice', Financial, 11 May) displays some of the less acceptable features that are becoming more prevalent
in our quest for riches since the new contract was negotiated.
While I agree that we need to use doctors and nurses effectively, and manage as many conditions in-house as possible, I would suggest 'eliminating income-losing activities, such as teaching' is shortsighted, greedy and GPs who do rightly deserve the fat-cat label.
Furthermore avoiding involvement with the PCT and specific in-hours postgraduate education further alienates them from the real world.
I wish them well when they advertise for their next salaried GP.
