4% pay rise for GPs say BMA

20th October 2008

The British Medical Association has said that doctors should receive a salary increase of 4% in 2009/10.

In a submission to the Doctors and Dentists Review Body (DDRB), BMA chairman Dr Hamish Meldrum said: "Last year’s below inflationary rises have failed to keep pace with the increase in the cost of living. Moreover, GPs received no increase in gross remuneration and with practice expenses rising considerably most of them had a significant pay cut for the second year running."
