Net GP Earnings
The statement to include is as follows:
“ 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 at Hadleigh Boxford Group Practice in the last financial year was £78,556 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs and 9 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.”
The figures have been calculated in accordance with guidance issued by NHS England as part of the GMS contract for 2020/21. There were no changes to this guidance from previous years. As we noted last year, the guidance is far from comprehensive, such that it has been necessary to make a number of assumptions to arrive at the average pay. These assumptions are however consistent with those used in previous years.
