Local pay boost for GPs8th June 2007
Family doctors who sit on the professional executive committees of Primary Care Trusts could get a pay rise that reflects the time and commitment they give to the role.
The suggestion comes from NHS chief executive David Nicholson in a letter to PCT chief executives, which says PCTs will now be allowed to develop local pay frameworks for the remuneration of PEC members.
Mr Nicholson says factors PCTs should consider include whether all PEC members should receive equal pay and developing a framework to reimburse lost earnings to ensure that PEC members do not suffer financially from the role.
