Publication of Earnings

All practices are required to declare the mean (average) earnings for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working at Westgate Medical Practice in the financial year 2014/15 was £42,753 before tax and national insurance. This is for 2 part time GP Partners and 4 salaried GPs and 4 regular locums 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 to make any comparison with any other practice.
