What GPs need to know about the Spring Budget 2024

This is the biggest change that will affect sessional GPs with children. Currently where income exceeds £50k for the highest earner of a couple, child benefit will be withdrawn partially until £60k of income where it will be repaid in full.

The limits are to be increased to £60k and £80k respectively so that a family with two children and a higher earner of £60k will be £2,213 better off.

The rules will change again in a few years so that it is household income that is looked at, rather than the higher earner which will remove the penalty for a stay-at-home partner where the other earns more than the single limit.

"Your platform is such a pleasure to use – so easy and clear to navigate. I am already excited as having published shifts today three hours ago and already had four GPs requesting to fill them. I can see all their qualifications and any questions they have.

I have worked in workforce and temporary staffing roles for ages and had numerous interactions with agencies. LocumDeck is so much better than any other booking systems I have used before."
