Practice closures campaign presents 20,000 signatures to Downing Street

Comment

I do not understand all this, really. A recent Times article stated that we GPs earn about 120000. So how much does Naomi Beer earn and these other practices faced with closure actually earn? Here, across the water in NI, average profit per patient year is £60 for about 7 consults. As others have pointed out, if you factor in 40% paperwork, this translates to less than £6 per consult and less than £3 take home pay. But I thought that GPs in England manage almost £ 4 per consult, which is a tiny fee and great value, but can bring in more than 100000 a year based on 40+ consults each day. So, how much per consult do these practices facing closure actually earn?
