GP Net Earnings

 

PUBLICATION OF EARNINGS

It is a contractual requirement for practices to publish their mean average earnings for 2015/16. Practices must;

  • Publish details on their website by 31 March 2017.
  • If asked this must also be available in paper copy or you can show the patient the information posted on the website.

The calculation excludes certain types of income and the rules are complex and open to interpretation.

Full time GP’s are defined in the guidance as working eight sessions or more. The number of GP’s includes salaried GP’s and locums who worked full or part time for 6 months or more.

 

The required disclosure for your practice is shown below. 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.

 

March 2017

 All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working in The Waterfoot Group Practice in the last financial year was £63,910 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs and 4 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
