Revealed: Six areas across England move towards a salaried GP model

Comment

Note sure if anyone realized but none of these models are GMS. This means they have no obligation to offer (luxurious) BMA model contract. I know there are disillusioned salaried GPs who thinks partners earn a lot more - this is incorrect. When factors such as employer contribution to pension is adjusted, income per hour worked at my partnership us £45/hr - not too different from average salaried GP earning/hr and a lot less then a locum. I suspect when APMS become the norm, it will drive down GPs pay and working condition, esp now we know we will no longer have European Working Time Directive soon. I hope enough GPs will have a foresight.
