GP income growth has slowed

GPs in England earned an average of £77,943 last year, a rise of 3.2 per cent over 2001, annual figures from medical accountants Dodd & Co show.

Scottish GPs saw their income jump by 4 per cent, but still earned nearly £10,000 less at £68,202.

But the rate of income growth fell from 5.4 per cent in England and 4.6 per cent in Scotland in 2001.

This year's figures for England showed GPs earned an average £60,381 in NHS net profits and an extra £17,562 from private work.

In Scotland NHS earnings were £55,621 and private work £12,581.
