Some NHS consultants can earn £100,000 in overtime

The BBC has learned that some NHS consultants are making more than £100,000 a year in overtime payments alone. And that is on top of their basic salary and annual bonuses.

Consultants have been accused of playing the system at a time when the NHS is trying to cut costs. But the consultants say they only do so much overtime because managers plan poorly.
