Sidestep row by replacing partners

There's an easy way to avoid the salaried contract - by replacing partners with partners!

If either side prefers a salaried post then it must be a fair deal. I am a salaried GP at a PMS practice and on a reasonable contract but I know of colleagues who are on awful contracts at about £6,000 a session, which is pretty shoddy by anyone's standards.

If partners try to squeeze salaried colleagues then they will only have themselves to blame when they go bust and we go to work for Virgin et al.
