The art of negotiation part 19

This story really does beggar belief when you actually read it. Effectively GPs have been allowed to opt out of evening and weekend work for only a 6% pay cut.

According to a Dr Fradd,part of the negotiating team, "We got rid of it for effectively 6% of the value of the contract. It was just stunning. Nobody in my position had ever believed we could pull it off but to get it for 6% was a bit of a laugh."

Yes – highly amusing isn't it! In fact I better not laugh too much or my sides may split – but there may be no after hours doctors around!

Just remember don't feel ill unless it's during working hours.
