GP earnings drop for seventh year in a row


The report doesn't say what proportion are working part time and this amount still puts them into the top 2% of wage earners. Yes it's stressful but so are many jobs, yes it's skilled but so are many jobs and to be fair GPs are self employed with few of the downsides of self employment andmnay of the benefits of the NHS including pension. I didn't hear any GPs moaning when the salaries went up when the contact was renegotiated in fact my GP friends and colleagues said they would work less and earn the same. So not sure I see the value of this report
