Average GP Earnings
Our contract with the NHS requires us to publish the average GP earnings at the Surgery. This politically driven requirement serves no purpose and is not in anyway useful as an indicator of anything remotely patient or care related.
Recent Governments have consistently reduced the amount of NHS Income coming into support Primary Care. This has led to a crisis in General Practice. Please help to save your local GP by using us wisely.
About the figure below...
As this is an average figure it cannot meaningfully be compared with figures from other GP surgeries as they may have a different number of full time and part-time GPs. For example if they have lots of GPs working just 1 day per week their figure will be much lower - even though they may be paying higher salaries... This figure in no way indicates the level of funding or the level of costs that the surgery requires to function.
The average is based upon:
3 x Full Time GPs
3 x Part Time GPs
From these earnings the GPs are required to pay many thousands of pounds of insurance premiums and for the Partners / Owners of the surgery they have unlimited liabilty.
