The average taxable income for combined GPs (contractor and salaried) was £90,200 in 2013-14, a 2.9% decrease from £92,900 the previous year.

For contractor GPs working under a GMS or PMS contract, the average taxable income was £99,800 in 2013-14, down from £102,000 in 2012-13. For GMS contractor GPs, the average taxable income was £96,000, down from £97,300, while PMS contractor GPs saw the figure decline from £10,800 to £106,800.

For salaried GPs, the average taxable income was £54,600, down from £56,400, says the Health and Social care Information Centre which has published ‘GP Earnings and Expenses 2013-14’.

Dr Richard Vautrey, BMA GP committee deputy chair said the figures provided further evidence of growing financial pressures being faced by general practice.

“With two thirds of a practice’s income being used on the basics of keeping a practice afloat, including paying for rising costs for utilities, building upkeep and vital staff such as receptionists and nurses, there is nothing left to develop effective patient services that meet patient’s growing needs,” he said.

“The government has to take action to stem the expenses pressure on GP practices as we are rapidly reaching a stage where many GP practices will struggle to remain financially viable.”

A parliamentary written question from Islington South & Finsbury MP Emily Thornberry elicited data relating to mean average gross earnings.

For 2012-13 the figure was £269,800 across England and 3279,900 in London for GMS contractor GPs. For PMS contractor GPs, the average figure across England was £315,800 but in London £347,200.
