Publication of GP Earnings for the last financial year
All GP practices are required to declare the mean net earnings (eg average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
This is required in the interests of the greater public accountability recognising that GP pay is ultimately funded from tax paid by the public.
The average pay for GPs working at West Somerset Healthcare (Williton & Watchet surgeries) in the last financial year was £50,653 before tax and national insurance. This is for 3 full time GPs and 3 part time GPs.
