Patients, managers and practice staff may appraise GPs
GPs who derided the bullish pay and pension predictions of former GPC negotiator Dr Simon Fradd will soon owe him an apology, the GPC believes.
Dr Andrew Dearden, who has taken over Dr Fradd's BMA pensions role, said evidence from this year's income levels suggested pensions would rise by between 30 and 40 per cent over three years.
Dr Fradd had said a 57 per cent rise was possible.
'He could be more right than wrong and if it gets to 40 per cent some people will owe Dr Fradd an apology, but I bet people's memories will be very short,' Dr Dearden said.
