GP leaders to vote on wholesale rejection of the network DES


I welcome funding for additional roles but currently some of groups identified are not necessarily what general practice needs and certainly will not reduce work load. At a time when being a partner means 60+ hours per week with salaried drs unkeen to take on more work or responsibility and wanting portfolio working I see publishing Gp earnings as absolutely crazy .. it will cause issues in practices and will further destabilise general practice. Why should we have to justify if some of us earn over 150k per year.. name and shame ..why? 60 Hours per week at £100 locum rate per hour ..add it up .. they seem to forget the additonal business aspects of running general practice with financial stresses etc. Sadly I agree this network DES is not going to be beneficial to the profession going forward and will lump more work and more employment contracts on us.
