GP Earnings

 All GP practices are required to declare the mean net earnings (eg. Average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice. This is required in the interests of the greater public accountability recognising GP pay is ultimately funded from tax paid by the public. 

The average pay for GPs working at High Street Medical Centre in the last financial year was £71,526 before tax and national insurance. This is for 1 full time GP and  2 part time GPs.
