BMA calls for GP pay increase to relieve workforce crisis


The band plays on whilst the ship sinks,20% wouldn't be enough now,the ddrb are influenced heavily by the government and have presided over the decline in doctor numbers in primary care,they always get their sums wrong as previous awards have led to a real terms pay cut even before inflation. The BMA are also complicit in the decline of the NHS You cannot deliver health care without doctors sorry Jeremy it may not be politically correct but it is true and doctors don't want to work for the terms and conditions currently on offer and vote with their feet. 2% will not be agreed Jeremy can say he was "tough on those doctors " NHSE will promote new models of care which have failure inherent within them and next year there will be even fewer doctors and we will start again with the hand wringing
