Pension issue 'won't go away'
GPs have been warned to
double-check their quality achievement pay after it was revealed some PCTs have made deductions to cover
An absence of national guidelines has meant some PCTs have kept money back on behalf of practices, but
others have paid the achievement in full and left the calculation to GPs.
In guidance released last week, Londonwide LMCs advised GPs to set aside achievement money to cover the 20 per cent superannuation contribution on quality pay, whether or not their PCT has made a deduction.
It warned that higher than expected profits may mean the PCT deduction was too small.
