PUBLICATION OF EARNING
It is a contractual requirement for practices to publish their mean average earnings for 2019/20. Practices must;
- Publish details on their website by 31st March 2021
- 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, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
Full time GP's are defined in the guidance as working eight sessions or more. The number of GP's includes salaried GP's and locums who worked full or part time for 6 months or more.
