GP Net Earnings

NHS England require that the net earning of Doctors in the Practice is published 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 form any judgement about GP earnings,  nor to make any comparison with any other Practice.

All GP Practices are required to declare the mean (average) earnings for GPs working to deliver NHS services to Patients at each Practice. The average pay for GPs working at Dr Baghdjian & Dr Jacobs in the last financial year was £71,010.84 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs and 1 Locum GP who worked at the Practice for more than 6 Months.
