GP Earnings 2022/23

All GP Practices are required to declare the mean net earnings (eg. Average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each Practice. This is required in the interests of the greater public accountability recognising GP pay is ultimately funded from tax paid by the public.

The average pay for GPs working at Polden Medical Practice in the last financial year was £58,504 before tax and national insurance. This is for 3 full time GP’s, 5 part time GP’s and 3 locum GP’s (who worked in the practice for more than 6 months)

Disclaimer
NHS England require that the net earnings of Doctors engaged in the Practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown above. 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.
