Headline

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

Comment

all interesting conversations. What people seem to neglect is what is happening in response to restrictions imposed by there various interested parties. The locum rates are going through the roof. 27% of matriculating GP's are out right leaving the NHS... and locum doctors. choosing their own hours, have not administrative role, are making more money then partners without the headache of being one. This will quickly leave the NHS high and dry for regular working doctors, and no incentive for anyone to even bother aspiring to be a partner. If everyone goes salaried, and make the lousy 110k or less. would you choose £100 an hour locum job or your trust job for about 40£ an hour... in the end it comes down to chickens and your families...
