I have based my retirement and pension planning on the content of a signed legal contract.
The spectre of Lord Warner and his DoH henchmen being allowed to contemplate an illegal breach of the GMS contract by limiting pension dynamisation is confirmation of our perennial malady — a demoralised disunited profession, poorly represented by amateurs.
It is a forlorn hope that the BMA might wake up to the reality of this injustice and entertain the prospect of ungentlemanly and unprofessional conduct. This DoH assault and insult demands action beyond GPC’s predictable ‘taking legal advice’.
May I suggest that ‘taking illegal advice’ would be more appropriate given the duplicity of the opposition.
Despite age and infirmity, I’m ready and willing to march the streets with placards.
The question is, Dr Meldrum, are you?
