GPs pay has been in the news, so here are some facts:
Typical cost of health insurance for a pet hamster for one year £60
Average payment to a GP for one year's care for each patient on his list £59
By contrast, each telephone call to NHS Direct costs £18, and one third of those calls result in the caller being told to go to A and E or to their GP!!
Which is the best value? We leave it to you to think about.
