GP pay rises could be targeted at areas with recruitment problems, says DH


"Health minister David Prior wrote to the Review Body on Doctors’ and Dentists’ Remuneration (DDRB) today asking it to consider how an average uplift of 1% ‘could be applied to improve recruitment and retention’" This sounds as though he is trying to pressure the DDRB into suggesting that the worst hit areas receive above 1% while everyone else presumably takes another pay cut in order to maintain the average so that he can say he has given extra funding to areas most in need while also claiming doctors have been awarded a 1% rise and aren't they ungrateful.
