Family of GP locum who died on 'day off' denied death-in-service benefits


Seems you have to be working 24/7 to be entitled...but I forgot, that's what the government seem to want. This is a complete disgrace and completely unfair to those who provide locum service. Surely if you are still contributing towards your pension with regular superannuation contributions, you are still in service, whether you are at work on the die you day or not. I think Pulse ought to arrange for a petition!
