Government considering DDRB findings on GP pay


The recommendation must be at least 1% above RPI. The DDRB is clearly carrying much of the blame for GP shortages, as they insist on putting government policy on funding (1% pay cap) ahead of the government manifesto promise of 5000 more GPs. This year, the government has not put a cap on pay, but the promise for increased number of GPs still exists. Furthermore, the government must fully implement, or beat any recommendation set out by DDRB. At least until it has delivered the promised new GPs.
