In the past 12 months my Rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care has received both written and verbal representations from the British Medical Association about its confidence in the Review Body on Doctors’ and Dentists’ Remuneration (DDRB).

The Government has also received written representations from the Hospital Consultants and Specialists Association.

There have also been some representations from individual doctors.

This Government remains committed to the continuing role of independent pay review bodies in the public sector to make recommendations on the remuneration of the staff groups covered by their remits. The DDRB is the longest established review body and we respect its independence and the valuable role it plays in taking evidence from all parties and making evidence-based recommendations.
