66% of GP Receptionists are paid below the NHS minimum wage

Extract from Pay Review 2016

Medical Receptionists

22% of GP Receptionists are paid the National Living Wage and a further 44% are paid up to but not including the NHS minimum wage of £7.80.

The remaining 34% staff may earn up to £10.05.

These findings make working as a GP Receptionist incomparable to Receptionists working in NHS hospitals and clinics. Is this fair or right?
