Under the NHS contract all GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (eg average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
“The average pay for GPs working in the Willington Surgery in the last financial year was £53,497 before tax and national insurance. This is for 7 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months
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, it should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make a comparison with any other practice.
In view of the fact that there are few hard and fast guidelines in place we must issue a disclaimer against any actions which may or may not be taken with regard to the publication of this information.”
