The question of periodic future adjustments of common fees and medical benefits is receiving close attention by the Government. In dealing with this subject, the Nimmo Committee expressed the view that adjustments of fees should be in conformity with the general movement of the economy but should also take account of other developments affecting the incomes of doctors.
