Amid the pay freeze in the public sector in Britain, a particular section is not only being paid fully, but is receiving hikes in salary as well, as per a recent report.
Since last two years, doctors have got pay rises and that too, above the inflation rate of 2.5%. Minimum 3% to a maximum of 8% increase has been enjoyed by them since the year 2010. NHS employers are strictly opposing the same.
The body, which is responsible for negotiating salaries with the unions, is of the opinion that a further increase in doctors' salaries may mean a risk to patient care. A rise, almost three times than the inflation rate, in pays might mean more financial crisis with more cuts in NHS.
Though, it is being said that the hikes are in the wake of conditions mentioned in their contracts. As per the findings, this is simply for the reason that they continue their job. But, employers say that the savings might come from the frontline in future.
And a new consultant hired in 2010 might be getting £89,652 above £81,954 in the starting. However, self-employed GPs are not a part of this group. "If we do increase pay... it will mean less investment for patient services and a greater risk of NHS job losses", said the report.
