Hancock in discussions with Treasury about changing GP pension tax rules


‘the biggest concern I have raised with me’ by GPs. just shows you who he’s talking to, wealthy end of career GPs who are already loaded. This is most certainly a problem but I wouldn’t label it as the biggest concern in general practice. My decision to become a Locum had nothing to do with the NHS pension. I’m sorry but I find it hard to get too excited about the financial situation of GPs who’ve accrued a 1 million pension pot. I am nowhere near that and never will be. To me the biggest issue is 1. Indemnity and 2. Work load/intensity - in that order. Just confirms in my mind why we are in the shit, all the lobbying is done by well off old guard end of service Drs who don’t really care about or understand the realities of mid career bread and butter GPs. They are all too busy on committees or doing management to really comprehend.
