GP Net Earnings Publication

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 Dr A J Newman in the last financial year was £47,648 before tax and National Insurance. This is for one full time GP, 2 part time GPs, and one locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months

GP Funding

Many GP practices such as Poole Town Surgery are independent small businesses, a detail often not made clear to the public.

Each year GP practices are funded on a payment per patient basis.

From this figure we need to pay our Doctors, Nurses and other staff, the costs of running the building, such as gas, electricity, cleaning, gardening and any repairs and work required, the cost of all the medical supplies and equipment used in patient’s care, insurance, stationery, postage, telephones and the hundreds of other small items that go into looking after our patients. This represents a real challenge.
