The partners are thinking of employing a salaried GP(9 sessions), instead of a new partner, when a partner retires soon. They are hoping this will be a cheaper option and will free up some money to employ extra nurse/reception time. I am not convinced and would appreciate input from anyone who employs a salaried GP as to how much the TOTAL costs is likely to be. Also, there is a possibility that this may be job-shared between two doctors and I have concerns as to how this will work out. Has anyone had a job-shared salaried GP and if so, did it work out OK? Many thanks.

topical question this, as salaried drs are worried that they are being left behind by not being offerred partnerships. From a financial point of view, if the partners are receiving more in drawings than a salried dr costs to employ ( and there are hidden costs- NI, holiday cover, pension contributions etc) then it will be viable for them. depends on how they view their practice. it's the way things are going.
