GP Earning Declaration
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings for GP's working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
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.
The average earnings for GP's working in New Road Surgery, Bromsgrove in the last financial year before tax and national insurance was £69,038. This is the average pay for 5 full time GP's and 2 part time GP's who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
