"There is also a balancing mechanism clause" This is the "Average Net Remuneration" from the Red Book. Not sure when that died, was it 1990 or 2004? HMG stated what they felt the average GP would earn that year and if on looking at the figures the following year they earned more then money was taken out of the contract sum. Bright minds suggested that GPs did Sweet Fanny Adams for one year, come in way in under Average Net Remuneration and the Government would have to add a lot to the contract and GPs could sit back and still earn loadsa dosh. Strangely it never happened.
