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 Chapelthorpe Medical Centre in the last financial year was £89,609 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 3 full time GPs, 5 part time GPs, and 0 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.”
Given the possibly misleading figures produced by the various calculations I am suggesting to my clients that they also include the following paragraph or something similar:
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice are publicised, and the required disclosure is shown here. 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 judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
