Salaried GPs' pay continues to rise as partners' earnings decline

The average sessional GP's pay rose by 2.7% in 2008/09 as partners' earnings fell for their third consecutive year, figures show.

The latest information on GPs' earnings from the NHS Information Centre reveals that between 2007/8 and 2008/9 the average earnings for a G/PMS partner fell by 1.2% to £99,200. This was down to a rise in expenses of 5.1%, partly fuelled by increasing staff costs.

The average salaried GP earned £57,300 in 2008/09 - a 2.7% increase on the previous year. The average PMS partner earned £116,300 in 2008/09 but data was not comparable to previous years.

The average income for a GMS dispensing practice fell by 4.3% to £116,500.

The full report contains a breakdown of GP expenses and earnings by country.
