Locums forced to slash fees by 8% due to pensions changes

Comment

As a locum I am paying the full 25% into my NHS pension scheme as the surgeries decline paying it despite it being a legal obligation. Long gone are the days when the locum does not do HV/paperwork/extra's/path lab results etc.... Working just like a partner but minus the sandwich eating meetings but I do attend whenever i can fit it in.
