GP Earnings

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

The average pay for GP's working at Moorside Medical Practice in the last financial year was £93,507 before tax and national insurance. This is for 1 full time GP and 1 part time GP and 0 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months. It should be noted that the prescribed method of calculating earnings is potentially misleading as it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used as any form of judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
