'No chance' of predicted 50% pay rise admits GPC

February 2004
GP: General Practitioner;2/23/2004, p2
General practitioners are asking what has happened to their predicted 50 per cent pay rise over three years, after the GPC admitted that they can now expect half that amount as of February 23, 2004. The GPC predicted the 50 per cent rise last year. However, last week GPC chairman John Chisholm estimated that the income increase was now likely to be 26 per cent over three years. Chairman of Somerset division of LMC Corp. Harvey Sampson said that the GPC had been far too optimistic with its initial 50 per cent estimate. Secretary of Oxfordshire division of LMC Corp. Paul Roblin agreed that there was "no hope" of anything near the 50 per cent pay rise materialising.
