NHS contracts prove a nice earner for doctors - Telegraph
"Family doctors received a pay rise of almost 23 per cent in one year, according to NHS figures published yesterday.
According to NHS figures published yesterday, GPs earned £100,170 on average in 2004-05, in the first year of their new contract that linked payments to services they provide such as cholesterol checks and flu jabs. However, they no longer have to provide care at night or at weekends.
NHS negotiators underestimated the payments that GPs would be able to claim under the new Quality and Outcomes Framework contract. Struggling primary care trusts had to pay them £300 million more than expected in the first year."
