GP Information

NHS England require that the net earnings of GPs 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 GPs spend working in the practice and it 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 earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs  working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working in Danson Family Practice in the last financial year was
£101,089.00 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs who worked in  the practice for more than six months.
