GP locum notional pay cap set at £80 per hour, says GPC


Supply and demand is the name of the game in any free society except in communist setup. How come no one complains of plumbers gas engineers and many other in the society who charge much more per hour. This is hypocrisy of the highest order. The whole NHS needs fixing and not just bits and pieces. The locum doctors are doing it right as the alternative to this to work as salaried or as a partner in the GP is currently unfavourable. Fix the general practice and more doctors would be happy to work regular jobs.
