This partnership is on the rocks

Comment

We love the NHS. Sure. But it has become abusive and bullying of its workforce. Profits are markedly decreased [ over 50%] per item. In NI from £ 80 to £ 60 per year average, combined with increasing consultation rates roughly 3 to 6. So, we are valued less. Of course, doctors are needed by people and ultimately, like decreasing number of pilots, we have the power to pull the plug, if we choose. We are Independent Contractors and can always walk out and re-negotiate a fairer Contract. The only problem is the GPC. They were mandated to do this by the LMC conference., but declined to do so. Market forces will finally prevail. But this one sided abusive partnership, where one partner constantly changes the rules, should be over.
