'My global sum is £18,000 too low'

Dr David Henderson is one of nearly a quarter of GPs who have a 'significant dispute' with their primary care organisation over their contract.

He has calculated his indicative global sum is £18,000 too low after comparing his practice in Hove, Sussex, with others nearby.

'I don't think my contract has been priced properly. I think I'm being underpaid and so does my accountant – that's what I call a significant area of dispute,' he said.

'We were told to sign something we hadn't looked at properly and that any problems will be ironed out later, but what if they can't?'
