GPs could face huge tax bill as inflation pushes pension pots over annual limits


It's actually quite possible to earn £150,000 doing just clinical work as a GP. You end up doing A LOT of work mind. Thanks God that some GPs are still willing to work full time AND do Out of Hours. The system would collapse otherwise. Which brings me to my point........the easiest way to increase the the number of WTE GPs (rather than recruiting a mythical 5000 extra new GPs) is to NOT penalise those that work full time. This country is obsessed with taxing income (making it impossible to become deathly through work alone) and oblivious to the possibility of taxing assets and wealth (much of which was inherited rather than earned).
