Practice disclosure of mean net GP earnings

Carrington House Surgery – publication of GP net earnings

All GP Practices are required to declare the mean earnings (i.e. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients
at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working in Carrington House Surgery in the last financial year was £75,840 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 6 part time GPs who worked in the practice for six months or more.

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised by 31 March 2024 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.


Understand mean net GP earnings

As part of the government’s aim for transparency of public workers’ pay, it is a contractual requirement for GP practices to publish the mean net earnings for all GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. This should be published on the practice website.

The mean net earnings figure is the average pay after relevant expenditure and is calculated as follows:
Total relevant income / number of GPs = mean total

Please note this calculation is worked out on a head-count basis of GPs in the practice, not on the number of sessions worked or how much time is worked in the practice by each GP. For this and other reasons it is difficult for you to compare different GP practices using this figure.
