GPs earning '£1.5k a shift at London A&Es'

Family doctors are earning thousands of pounds working night and weekend shifts at stretched London A&E departments, the Daily Mail reports.

One recruitment firm, Primary Care People, was reported to offer family doctors £120 an hour for a 12-hour shift - £1,440 - at Guy's Hospital in south London.

Pay rates through the company were so good that doctors are reportedly travelling to the capital from all over the country to make the extra money.
