GP Net Earnings

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged 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 comparisons with any other practice.

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (eg average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working at Dr O Z Qureshi ‘s Surgery in the last financial year 2017/18 was £72880 before tax and National insurance. This is for 1 Full-time doctor and 1 Part time salaried GP who worked at the practice for more than 6 months
