GP Net Earnings

 

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised,

and the required disclosure is shown below. 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.

The average pay for GPs working in the Sonning Common Health Centre in the last financial year

was £57,134 before tax and national insurance. This is for two full time GPs, five part time

GPs and one locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months.
