I'd love to get an English GP's pay

From Dr David Church

Machynlleth, Wales

Dr Jim Sherifi calculates that salaried GPs earn about £45 per hour, but principals average £70 (Registrar, 6 July).

My earnings last year as a principal are more like £45 an hour gross, from which I still need to cover my own sick pay insurance and MPS subs.

I would very much like to get £250,000 a year like English GPs, or even £850,000 a year like the Blairs, but at the current hourly rate I could not justify that much work in a week!
