There are three points of conflict in how general practitioners receive income that are, I believe, at the centre of the internally inconsistent and often confused position in which we find ourselves.

  • Robert W Pegram

  • Central Northern Adelaide Health Service, Adelaide, SA.


Competing interests:

I am currently a part-time, contracted, percentage-of-fees-generated paid GP, as well as a salaried health service manager (having sampled full fee-for-service remuneration as a practice principal, salaried employment and mixed arrangements).
