PUBLICATION OF EARNINGS
Publishing the ‘mean earnings for all GPs in their practice' is a contractual requirement.
- Details should be published on the practice website.
- If asked this must also be available in paper copy or you can show the patient the information posted on the website.
The calculation excludes certain types of income and the rules are complex and open to interpretation. 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, or to make any comparison with any other practice.
