Financial Declaration

Of Average GP Earnings For Beacon Medical Group

GP practices receive funding from a variety of sources – through the annual NHS contracts to provide standard care and from health commissioners and local councils through enhanced services including certain contraceptive services, specialist support for long term conditions, some immunisations and NHS health checks. We actively encourage patients to make the most of these services for their health needs and because vitally the money from these services helps us to fund nursing and other support for patients.

The amount of money we receive is often weighted based on a national formula that takes into account factors such as rurality, deprivation and age of patients. As a rough guide, in 2019/20 Beacon Medical Group is expected to receive £78 per year per patient under the annual NHS contract regardless of the number of appointments or prescriptions we issue. In 2019/20 this figure is topped up to £83 per patient per year to support us working more closely with other agencies such as community health, mental health and the voluntary sector. The additional services we provide bring this figure up to £113 per patient per year covering staffing and equipment costs.

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 Beacon Medical Group in the last financial year was £36,409 before tax and national insurance. This is for 1 full time GP, 30 part time GPs and 0 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.)
