Podiatric Surgeons are genral on band 8a or 8b during their registrar training (depends on trust, and the agenda for change matching process, ironically AfC was supposed to remove the grading disparity but has actually as we all know increased it!0
Upon gain certificate of completion and obtaining a consultant contract they are they given a band 8d or band 9, again depending on location.
I know of consultants in London on band 8d and in East Anglia on band 9.
In all cases the consutants are on better pay under AfC either on 8d or 9 than they were under the old whitley contract, and of course it is necessary to have an NHS consultant contract in order to practise in private hospitals and to be reconginsed for reimburshement by the private medical insurance companies, which all consultants naturally wish to do.

I don't believe that all podiatric surgeons wish to work in the private sector!
"Political Correctness" is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
