GP earnings

Practice disclosure of mean net GP earnings

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

The average pay for GPs working in the practice of Southmead Surgery in the last financial year was £35,242  before Tax and National Insurance.

This is for 2 full time GPs, 2 part time GPs and 4 Locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.


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.

How the calculation is made

Further information on how the calculation is made can be found under Practice Doctors.
