Publication of GP net earnings 2015/2016

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

The average pay for GPs working in Unity Health in the last financial year was £55,701 before tax and National Insurance. This is for three full time GPs and five part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.

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.
