  • The 'one off' hit for indemnity is misleading. It lowers the baseline for subsequent increases in global sum.

  • Great new contract? Then why am I still fed up to the back teeth with the yearly movement of the goal posts which stops me from just getting on with my job. I actually like patient contact and consultation. I even like continued learning and reading. What I can't stand is remembering all the different income streams and KPIs and the boxes I'm ticking to get paid for the good standard of work I hope I would produce regardless . Ticks in boxes mean cash and a reassurance to NHSE that all is well ITS NOT!
