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


Anonymous | 24 June 2013 11:13am Sorry, but true... Dr Bickle of Barra earned huge sums for his OOH, which started £1,000 per night and then was re-negotiated to £800 per night. If you are THE ONLY doctor and in reality always attending as an OOH - how much do you think that adds up to? It was suggested at some point by Andy Kerr (then Minister for Health in Scotland) that this was an April Fool Day story. If only! You could earn in Scottish Isles in excess of £10,000 for a weeks locum work.
