GP Earnings

The General Medical Services (GMS) contract is the contract between general practices and NHS England for delivering primary care services to local communities.

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 average pay for GPs working in Paston Surgery in the last financial year was £22,230 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 6 part time GPs and 2 part time locum 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 judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
