Other Practice Information

NHS England require that the net earnings of GPs engaged in the Practice is publicised and the required disclosure is shown below. However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes NO account of how much time GPs spend working in the practice and it should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (i.e. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The annual declaration of average pay for GP's working in BEEFOLD MEDICAL CENTRE was £90,635 in the latest accounts  - this is for 1 full time GP. Please note previously we used to have a salaried part-time GP - this is NO longer the case.
