Statement of GP Earnings
From April 2016 it is a requirement for practices to publish the mean net NHS earnings of the Partners, Salaried GPs, and any locum who has worked in the practice for over 6 months. The calculated value is before income tax, NI, and employee pension contributions and is for 4 partners, 2 salaried doctors, and 2 locums. The resulting figure for 2017/2018 is £85656.
It should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time a doctor spends working in practice. For example, a doctor working 1/2 day per week counts the same for a full time doctor in the calculation. Therefore, practices that have many part time doctors or that use a high number of locums will typically calculate a lower figure than a practice with mostly full time doctors. This information, therefore, should not be used to form a judgement about actual GP earnings or to make any comparison with other practices
