GP Net Earnings 2016
All GP Practices are required to declare the mean net earnings (e.g average pay) for GP’s working to deliver NHS Services to patients at each Practice.
This is required in the interests of the greater public accountability recognising that GP pay is ultimately funded from tax paid by the public.
The average earnings for GPs working at The Bovey Tracey & Chudleigh Practice in the latest financial year was £61,228 before tax and national insurance. This is for 6 full-time GPs, 7 part-time GPs and 2 Locum GPs who worked in the Practice for more than six months.
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 make any comparison with any other Practice.
