Type: Oral Parliamentary Question (OPQ)

Member Tabling Question: Lilley, Peter
Date Tabled:
Question: On the notional transfer of resources to front-line services, can the Minister tell us how many primary care trusts, as a result of the new centrally imposed GP contract, will increase payments to GPs in the coming year by between ?20,000 and ?25,000 each compared with last year, and how many consultants, as a result of the new consultant contract, will earn more than ?20,000 more this year than last year? Was that the intention of either contract and is that the best use of money in the national health service?
Question Number:

Answering Department: Dept of Health
Date of Answer: 25.10.2005
Date for Answer:
Answer: The right hon. Gentleman asks a detailed question, and with my mental arithmetic not being good as it should be, I will get back to him on the detail. His general point, however, is important. We decided to agree those new contracts and pay the salaries that go with them precisely because we needed to retain really good people in the health service. That is what the whole process was about. The right hon. Gentleman asks a detailed question, and with my mental arithmetic not being good as it should be, I will get back to him on the detail.
