Salaried GPs and trainees scheduled for 6% payrise

The Government has announced that salaried GPs and trainees are due a 6% pay rise, Pulse reports.

Funding for the pay rise will come through to be funded through an uplift to the global sum, backdated to April.

An uplift of 6% is due to consultants, SAS doctors, junior doctors, and GPs who are salaried or in training.

Meanwhile GP partners are still under a five-year contract with a below-inflationary uplift of just 2.1%. At the time of writing, inflation stood at 8.7% on a target of 2%.

Junior doctors are currently striking in the longest action of its kind to date in NHS history. Consultants are due to strike on 20 and 21 July.

Dr Richard Fieldhouse, NASGP chair, said: “In any other time in recent memory, a 6% pay rise for salaried GPs might have looked attractive. With inflation being what it is, this is still below inflation and does rather put salaried GPs at odds with GP partners.

“But what may already have been decided is that, in many people’s minds, the Government does not seem to appreciate the value of its NHS doctors.”

This piece was edited on 14 July to explain that the pay rise would be funded from an uplift. 

"LocumDeck does everything you want it to do in an instant. I absolutely love the facility for receiving locums' invoices and the facility for signing pension forms electronically. They are then instantly sent with an audit trail. It is fabulous! You are notified the moment a GP locum adds availability, which is just fantastic. I have no hesitation in recommending LocumDeck – it has already eased my workload."
