GP Earnings

“All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.


The average pay for GPs working in South Meadow Surgery in the last financial year was £71,834 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 4 full time GPs, 7 part time GPs and 3 Locums who worked in the practice for more than six months.”

However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgment about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
