How GPs have been left dealing with the pensions pot fiasco


Pension is pay. If our take home pay was thousands of pounds out each year we would be up in arms Many of us put up with half time on call payments as junior doctors only because we had a good pension to look forward to and a large part of why we accepted the nGMS contract all those years ago There is a real feeling our expected pensions could fold in the future Sorting this is vital and should be treated in contract negotiations as such with hard negotiating on a date where by we can expect this to be sorted I can’t believe how much crap we are putting up with as a profession with every area of our work and future a shambles We can’t magic up new GPs in time for the 2019 contract but we could insist on a functioning pensions system
