Latest Figure Shows 1.7% Rise in Earnings of GP Partners
On 14th September 2016, NHS Digital has published the new official figures of the GPs earnings and expenses for the 2014/15 financial years. The latest data is collected from the detailed study of the earnings and expenses of GP partners from NHS work and private work. The data also calculates income before GMC fees, CQC fees and superannuation costs.
According to the data from NHS digital, GP partner earnings increased from £99,800 to £101,500 i.e. by 1.7% in 2014/15.

General Practice Committee contracts and regulation subcommittee chair, Dr Robert Morley said that any increase in GPs partner earnings simply reveals the point that there is a decrease in the number of partners out there and increase in the workloads. He further added that we could see huge decrease in profits if the number of GP partners had stayed static.
