In 1983 a group of consultants and community physicians, protesting against the divisive pay rise awarded to doctors in the NHS (whilst other health staff had had to battle for a pay award half of that given to doctors) established the ‘Doctors’ Awards Redistribution Enterprise’ (DARE). The charity was initially funded from four year covenants made by these doctors, of the difference between the pay rise they received and that which they would have had, if they had been treated the same as other NHS staff. The money was used to fund new developments in the priority services and which would not have taken place otherwise. The DARE lecture is the legacy from this work and aims to challenge and stimulate debate on developments within the NHS.
