Headline

Minister attacks talk of GP recruitment crisis as ’damagingly wrong'

Comment

Anon 10:20, I'm not sure if you are a troll or just misguided. As poster above has pointed out, many newly qualified (and some experienced) GPs seems to think they should earn a lot more for doing less. This has resulted in difficulty with recruiting. I've done a calculation a few weeks back on how much we are earning per hour, adjusting the employer's pension to equate the pay condition. On this I earn £36/hour pre-tax/pre-indemnity/pre-locum insurance (and my surgery earns slightly above average) Salaried GP on average nationally earns £40/hour Locums £70-90/hour So if you are expecting a big pay rise to become a partner, you won't find a "good job" unless you work with people like Clare Geralda who has a big coporate and many salaried GPs working under her.
