Headline

Gerada to 'start dialogue' on GPs' independent contractor status in new NHS England role

Comment

I'm not sure how much employee protection GPs will have even if General Practice becomes a salaried service. I don't remember overly much employment protection when I was a hossy doc. Clearly the EWTD has come in since then but you can 'voluntarily' opt out of that. I can imagine a scenario where there is a wholesale 'voluntary' opt out in order to maintain a reasonable income in the private sector. If only doctors would recognise their power as a collective and act like one. COI Retired
