Is that why nurses and other people working in healthcare, like me, have had a pay-cut (a.k.a. 'below inflation rise')?
I don't begrudge GPs getting paid this (even if they don't have to work shifts like the rest of us). But it will add a bit of bad feeling within the NHS – especially when you see the poor quality of some of the GPs in London.
As I've mentioned before, the government is trying to get ambulance services to take on the role of 'out-of-hours' GP work, I bet we won't be getting paid similar money though.
I just wish that we could have some sort of bargaining power in order to stop the government from crapping all over us.
And in unrelated news – 'Staff shortages and unsafe wards are all the nurses fault, not the government'.
Ever thought of giving up in disgust?
