'Fat cat GPs' wide of mark

Reports of GPs earning stratospheric pay rises as a result of the new contract are wide of the mark, Pulse's survey indicates.

Only 6 per cent of GPs said their pay had risen by more than £25,000 over the past two years. A further 16 per cent estimated a rise of between £20,000 and £25,000, with one-fifth earning between £10,000 and £20,000 more. But 28 per cent of GPs said they had either earned less than £5,000 more or had no change in their income ­ 1 per cent said their pay had fallen.

Association of Specialist Medical Accountants figures last year showed average GP pay in England was £103,000.
