All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Rowhedge Surgery in the last financial year was £65,212 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs and 5 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
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.
These figures should not therefore be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice. Increasing operational costs such as Medical Indemnity, CQC fees (which are rising three fold), and GMC fees are all borne by the partners. Increasing staff salaries and training fees coupled with the difficulty in retaining and recruiting GP’s are forcing many local practices to either close or merge with other practices with the loss of their branch surgeries.
