NHS chiefs say that as a result, high numbers of medics are cutting their hours, because they say it is not worth their while to take on the work – fuelling a sharp rise in waiting lists. Changes in Treasury rules means that high earners can end up paying tax rates of up to 90 per cent on earnings over £110,000 a year – which includes any rise in the value of their pensions.
