GP Earnings

It is a contractual requirement for all GP practices to publish their mean average earnings for 2017/18.

Practices must:

  • Publish details on their website by 31st March 2019.
  • If asked for this, have the information available in paper copy or be able to show the patient where this information is 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 who worked full or part time for six months or more.

The required disclosure for the 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.

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

The average pay for GPs working in Corkland Road Medical Practice in the last financial year was £58,9692 before tax and National Insurance. This is for five part time GP’s who worked in the practice for more than six months.​
