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 GP pay is ultimately funded from tax paid by the public.
The average pay for GPs working in Downend Health Group in the last financial year was £48,792 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GP's, 18 part-time GP's and 1 locum GP who worked in the practice for more than six months.
