Another pay freeze for GPs3rd November 2011
Pay for GPs is set to be frozen for another year, it has been revealed.
And also under the new agreement between the BMA and NHS Employers, patients will be allowed a greater choice of doctor as practice boundaries are relaxed. Health secretary Andrew Lansley said the 2012/13 contract was “a good deal for GPs”, patients and the NHS.
Despite a free on GP net pay, there will again be a 0.5% uplift in contract payments, intended to contribute to rising practice expenses and the minimum £250 pay rises for practice staff earning less than £21,000 (full-time equivalent).
