We undervalue our out-of-hours

In your report headlined 'Shift rates set to rocket in out-of-hours free market' (January 20) yet again someone has decided that our out-of-hour work is worth £60 an hour. I sometimes wonder why we undervalue ourselves so much.

It is time we GPs wake up and start fighting for what is right for us.

Dentist, lawyers, accountants and plumbers will not work for the £60 an hour during late evenings.
