GP practices offered £20k grants to boost training places


So the NHS under the ex M+S chief adopts "fashion Manufacturing Policies" and imports overseas workers as the amount they can earn at uk rates makes them a wealthy person in their home country economy? Not old enough to remember it ,despite being born but the NHS History is clear- we are officially back in the mid 1960's- " Brain Drain" " overseas Doctor recruitment"- So my Prediction? The cycle runs elect a labour government, 80% Higher rate income tax, Medical Strike, some rehash of " fair days work for a fair days wage" industrial action by medical staff (cf1969), a renamed Independent pay review award body to prevent the need to strike in future. Oh sorry- we have that since the last cylce its supposed to be a fair wage system now , however the politicians feel they can renage on it for nearly every public sector employee. -Note Sole exception. The new independant one for MP's " its independant must be paid in full fair remuneration for responsibilities" I hope the public are slowly coming to realise that MP's deliberately kept the official salary low but the expenses huge and unchecked ,to keep restraint on public sector " but your MP only get 58k per anum". Clare Curtis-Thompson 250,00k per anum full package- where are you now?
