Patient Access Update
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors 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 doctors spend working in the Practice and should not be used for any judgement about GP earnings, nor make any comparisons with other Practices.
The average pay for GPs working in the Warders Medical Centre in the last financial year was £88,118 before Tax and National Insurance. This is for 5 full time GPs and 7 part time GPs who worked in the Practice for more than six months.
