Doctors' pay will rise by more than 25 per cent to reach an average of £130,000 a year under NHS reforms, it was claimed last night.
GPs already earn an average of £105,700, but for commissioning services they would be expected to be paid between £48 and £115 per hour, depending where they work. The figures were reportedly revealed after a freedom of information request by the Labour Party.
Last year, 210 GPs earned more than £250,000. Critics said the new payments were "outrageous".
