GPs offered £68 per hour for commissioning work14th February 2011
Leading GPs have said the offer of £67.50 per hour to be involved in commissioning is not enough.
Dr Clive Henderson, a GP in York, and chair of Goole, Howden and West Wolds locality commissioning group, said: "The initial offer was for £67.50 per hour. The current offer on the table sounded better at £45 plus receipted locum bills for board/clinical executive work, or £35 plus locum for transition group work. That was until we found locum costs were thought to be £35 per hour. GPs would not be able to get adequate locum cover at that cost."
