return to mess
Literally half of what’s suggested on the BMA rate card which advises £150 an hour for weekday 7am - 7pm work. How are we going to get this rate up?

I'm not sure how we're going to get the rate up, but it's definitely something that needs to be addressed. It's not fair to the consultants who are working hard and not getting paid what they deserve.
I know one trust that has capped consultant rates at £65 and people take it 🥴
Emigrate. Don't look back.
To be fair it is going up slowly. For the record...ST3/4. Doing long-term locums. Getting 80-85/hour now.
The BMA rate card is not relevant. Its a union. Every union pushes for higher rates. Further more, the BMA rate card that was advertised was for Niche Specialties and there was a period of time it was in affect for.
