Locum fees cut due to superannuation changes, says BMA


@Anonymous | 20 April 2013 7:30am State pension is indeed a Ponzi scheme.Most people are under the misapprehension (fed by the politicians of course) that their national insurance contributions help to build their own pension pot.The truth is that they go into a common tax pool part of which is then used to paying the state pension of current retirees.A meagre 1.3% uplift is totally insufficent to pay for the extra 14% employer's superannuation contribution.The end result is that either: 1.GP locums stop paying into NHS pension 2.Take a significant fees cut 3. long term locum positions disappear completely
