GP leaders to vote on support for fully salaried GP profession


Anonymous | GP Partner17 Jan 2016 12:23pm I am one of those mercenary locums who you might think does not want to do the extra stuff. I do not consider these items of work to be silly at all. Quite the opposite in fact. I object the complete lack of recognition of the massive workload all these bits represent and the fact that partners are not properly remunerated for them. If someone wants to pay me to do their repeat script reviews or sort out their admin then I'm good to go. The trouble is that nobody in power or leadership seems to place appropriate value on this work which they trivialise. I am genuinely sorry if, as a partner you feel got at by people like me, it is not my intention. It is just that these extra tasks are almost exclusively associated with the drudgery that partnership entails.
