All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. The required disclosure is shown below.
The average pay for GPs working in Becontree Medical Centre in the last financial year was £67,970.00 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 1 full time GP and 3 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 judgment about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
The figures have been calculated in accordance with the guidance issued by NHS England as part of the GMS contract, and there have been no changes to this since last year. As we have previously highlighted the guidance is far from comprehensive, such that it has been necessary to make a number of assumptions to arrive at the average pay. These assumptions are however consistent with those used in previous years.
