Really is this the best they could do?? I dont know any whole time GPs earning £80K. Who is going to go to medical school and train to be a gp for this salary? Does Alan Mc Devitt think this is a realistic figure?? We get access to treatment rooms though and can get bloods and dressings done.Game changer! What about access to MRIs, Echos, BNP etc. How about the government and their advisors use their imagination. Have we really waited all this time for this rubbish. How about a tax free allowance (up to 20K say) for doctors working out of hours. That would recruit and retain better than this nonsence. How about empowering GPs rather than deskilling. I know what way I will be voting.
