AISMA response to Welsh pay award

Commenting on the Welsh government’s announcement that GPs in Wales will receive a 4% pay rise, backdated to 1 April this year, Jim Duggan, AISMA board member said:

“For too long now Welsh practices have struggled due to a lower level of funding compared to their counterparts in England and indeed Scotland. It is refreshing to see the DDRB recognise this and take steps to alleviate the financial pressures hard working practices have faced. There is still room for improvement and I look forward to seeing further increases in the funding for Welsh practices to help secure their future viability.”
