Dr David Bailey, the chair of the BMA's Welsh Council, said: "Whilst the DDRB's recommendations could have gone further to address many years of below inflation rises, doctors in Wales will be pleased that the Welsh Government has decided to implement the recommendations made by the independent panel.
15.3% and 3,494kcal [kg.sup.-1], respectively, Table 1), and the slightly higher amount of starch (50.0 vs 47.8%) explain the higher DE values of DDRB. According to HURRELL (2004), removing phytic acid facilitates ingredient digestion because it prevents the chelation of myoinositol hexaphosphate molecules with multivalent metal ions, especially zinc and calcium.
A spokesman for the British Medical Association (BMA), the union representing doctors, said: "The BMA will be publishing its evidence to the DDRB this week on what it suggests to be a fair and appropriate pay award for doctors."
Pay Review Bodies (PRB) including Armed Forces Pay Review Body (AFPRB), Doctors' and Dentists' Review Body (DDRB), Prison Service Pay Review Body (PSPRB), Senior Salaries Review Body (SSRB), and School Teachers' Review Body (STRB) were asked to examine how an increase to base pay of an average of up to 1% could be applied across the relevant public sector workforces.
The Welsh Government's selective implementation of the recommendations of the independent Doctors and Dentists Review Board - the board that recommends doctors' salaries for consultants (as opposed to the DDRB recommendations being implemented in full in Scotland) in reality means that only 41 consultants in Wales will receive the award referred to.
The BMA said in its evidence to the DDRB: 'The intention in the NHS plan for consultants to become increasingly involved in mentoring, training and leadership, together with the administrative burdens imposed on all doctors by revalidation and clinical governance, can only result in a more intense clinical workload if demand is to continue to be met.'
