GP practices forced to tell NHS England if they pay over 'maximum rate' for locums


we knew this would happen - the monitor guide though does not specify GP locum rates unless i've missed it. It mentions consultant and junior doctors. It will be interesting what rate they set bearing in mind our high defense fees. This may push those retired but locum GPs and OOH GPs to quit and totally destroy staffing in primary care.
