GPs on more than £150k a year to be named


Not quite sure why a full time doctor working 10 sessions/ 6 hours a week has to publish his profit share of 160k.... While 2 jobsharing doctors who work 5 sessions/ 30 hours per week, do not have to publish their income of 80k each? There is similar unfairness with regards to the payments for sickness/ maternity. When a 2 session doctor is off sick for 5 months, the practice 'could' (after 2 weeks) pay a locum 900 pounds per session and get it fully funded. If a 10 session doctor is off sick, their locum would not be fully covered unless they could find one for 180 pounds a session. And worse still if that same 10 session doctor, split his time working 2 sessions at 5 different surgeries, when off sick his locums could be hired for 900 pounds per session. We should not be agreeing systems which discourage full time working. Especially when doctors are in such short supply.
