Buckinghamshire LMC member Dr Gill Beck said that registrars had been left around £5,200 worse off in 2007/8 than the year before because of the combined effects of cuts to the registrar's supplement and increased contributions to the cost of training.
'As a GP principal I face a 5 per cent cut in pay because of the pay freeze, but GP registrars face a far greater cut as a proportion of their total income.'
She warned the move would cut recruitment and interest in general practice among young doctors.
GP registrars committee chairman Dr Andrew Thompson said: 'What a nightmare registrars have had to go through - they have just got over MTAS and now they are being hit by a pay cut.'
A motion condemning the pay cut was carried unanimously.
