We lost out for taking a stand on partners
Our practice has taken on two new partners in the past two years ('GPs to be offered £200K to offer partnerships').
This reduced our income but we felt it was the right thing to do. Other practices have taken on salaried GPs and maintained or increased their personal incomes and are now being offered more gold to take on partners - so it's win-win for them while we are the poor fools with expensive principles.
