Decleration of GP Earnings

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 Lilford Park Surgery in the last financial year was £76,550 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 1 full time GP, 2 part time GPs and 1 locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months. This calculation does not take into account the total number of hours spent by GPs delivering vital services to the patient population.
