Half of GPs call for contract renegotiation


any renegotiation will surely lead to even less income & more work, -- It did in 2004! The treasury has been hounding the DH to claw back money from GPs so whilst workload has gone up so what HMG gets for it's pennies is even more value. Problem is to get our incomes back to a level that is commenserate to the workload the government will look weak as it has long painted us as incompetant, lazy and overpaid. Any move to being fair to us and our patients will be grist to the Daily Wail mill. We're stuffed until as one we say no, down tools and drive HMG to the table- a bit drastic? Look what they've imposed on us since 2004- oh yes master doffs cap and does additional hours, doffs cap and fills in another QoF clinically irrelevent box, please Sir may I have some money now? - yes but we're having it back in pension contributions and removing tax rebates and making you pay for clinical waste services- oh thankyou kind Sir.
