Salaried GPs earn little more than physician associates, official figures reveal


GP Partners are the equivalent of company directors in the business sector. As income faells the director tends to reduce the salary it offers to new employees or halt pay rises for existing employees rather than reduce their own salaries. The directors are often described as greedy, but they receive their pay as they take the risk. The NHS is operating at a huge deficit so there isn't going to an injection of cash to cure this. Surely it is the GP Partners who must answer why salaried GP's are paid so much less than them. This obviously depends on whether this article is comparing like for like. Comments suggest not.
