GP earnings drop for seventh year in a row


Overworked and underpaid....................... but most still find time for "private work" usually netting more than the NHS income. NHS appointments will get cancelled if a Partner is on leave or on sick but never the private ones. That's because the NHS income is guaranteed so becomes a lower priority. If GP Partners were really "overworked" surely it would make sense for them to give up one or the other?? A lot of GP Partners haven't had a "real" increase in 7 years but then again neither have their staff and it is much harder getting by on £900 per month than on £900 per day!! Food for thought that's all!!!!
