PMS GPs take home £14,000 more
PMS GPs earned £14,000 more than their GMS counterparts last year, a survey of 1,200 practices has found.
The annual study by the
Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants concluded that the
massive pay gap would cause GPs to make a dash for PMS if they reject the new GMS contract.
Mike Gilbert, former chair of the association and partner at accountants RMT, said the pay gap would widen for as long as the GMS contract was based on capitation because of the fall in birth rates.
