From 1 April 2015, it is a contractual requirement for practices to publish on their practice website by the end of the financial year (i.e. 31 March 2016), the mean earnings for all GPs in their practice relating to the previous financial year (i.e. 2014/15).
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.
If patients do not have internet access, please contact the Practice Manager who will provide this information either in paper copy or by showing the patient the information posted on the practice website.
All earnings reported are pre-tax, National Insurance (NI) and employee pension contributions and for contractors the figures are net of practice expenses incurred.
This must include earnings from NHS England, CCGs and local authorities (for the provision of public health services) for the provision of GP services that relate to the contract or which have been nationally determined (i.e. those that would have previously been commissioned by PCTs following direction by NHS England or the Department of Health).
The average pay for GPs working in Churchwood Medical Practice in the last financial year was £64166 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs, 2 part time GPs and 0 locum GP 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, 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.
