itsnotoutthere Posted September 2, 2022 #1 Share Posted September 2, 2022 GPs saw their earnings rise to £142,000 during the pandemic in a Covid pay boom, new data show. The official NHS figures reveal that as surgeries closed their doors to patients, routinely restricting face-to-face appointments, doctors’ incomes rose to unprecedented heights. GP partners – who make up the majority of family doctors – saw average incomes rise by £20,000 to £142,000 in the 12 months after the first lockdown. The 17 per cent rise, the largest on record, came as the NHS moved to a system of “total triage”, with patients refused GP appointments in person unless they had a telephone consultation first. Some of the extra money will have come from delivering the Covid vaccine rollout and because GPs were paid for tasks they no longer had to do during the pandemic. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/gps-given-record-pay-rises-in-covid-pandemic/ar-AA11mR8D?ocid=BingHPC Never enough money.
