LMC advice re staff pay uplifts.

Date sent: Monday 26 March 2018

Email sent by Wessex LMCs to GP Partners and Practice Managers

I have been asked by several practices what cost of living increase would the LMC recommend for this year.

The LMC would recommend that practices pass on the 1% pay uplift to their staff from 1 April that was part of the negotiated contract settlement for 2018/9. As you will remember form previous emails the GPC has submitted evidence to the DDRB seeking an uplift in excess of the contract agreement.

The DDRB outcome and government’s decision will likely come in the Summer. It is difficult to predict what the DDRB will recommend and then if the Government will honour the recommendation.

The LMC would  recommend that any uplift recommended by DDRB and agreed by government could be back-dated to the 1st April.


Best wishes
