Gender Pay Gap in Medicine

Responding to figures published today by the BBC which shows a gender pay gap among consultants, Dr Sally Davies, immediate MWF Past-President, said:

"We need to do more to support women. They often fall behind when they have children and have to take time off.

"By the time they get to the point where overtime is available or the awards are being handed out they find themselves behind men. It's a serious problem."

ENDS
