Average GP earnings 2020/21

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 Sunnyside Medical Centre in the last financial year was £84,446 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 7 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.

 

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised by 31 March 2021 at the latest.  However, it should be noted that the prescribed method of 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 for any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices.

Practices are recommended to follow the definition of full time provided within the 2006/7 UK General Practice Workload Survey, namely that those GPs that work eight sessions or more are considered full time, and any GPs working less than this are considered part time.
