Think tank says cut GP pay by 10%21st April 2009
A report by think tank Reform has said NHS doctors and managers' salaries need to be decreased by 10% and GPs should charge for visits.
The report said: "The weight of evidence suggests that it is higher paid members of staff – ie, registrars, consultants, GPs and managers – who have seen pay increases that are least in line with productivity gains. The total pay bill of these groups is £13bn. A 10% reduction in these salaries would therefore save £1.3bn. It would aid future reform by establishing the idea that pay should follow productivity."
