“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.
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised and the required disclosure is shown below. 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 for any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices.
The average earnings for GPs working in Dr Underwood and Partners in the last financial year ending in 2017/18 was £64,195 before taxation and National Insurance. This is for 4 full time GPs and 5 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
From 1 April 2015, practices are required under the contract to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients (including children).
All patients will be allocated a named GP who is responsible for patients' overall care at the practice. If a patient has a preference as to which GP that it is, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request
