Quality pay does not cover the extra workload
I have just received the calculation for the quality and outcomes pay for my practice the points aspired to is 1,050, less 174 as I am a PMS practice.
The extra work for my staff and myself has already increased dramatically. The pay for this is grossly inadequate.
The reductions, as all practices are based on £75 divided by variance from the average list size and a square root factor, means that decent pay from Q&O is only achievable by maintaining a ridiculously big list.
I thought the new contract was supposed to reduce workload, not push an already overstretched workforce into early retirement.
This whole farce must now be rejected for the following reasons:
lgreat numbers of practices needing MPIG
lall the delays
lno one should be forced to sign a contract 'under dispute'
lunresolved problem of out-of-hours cover
lextremely poor rates for extra work
lunresolved problems of enhanced services pay.
No wonder NHS managers were laughing.
