Salaried GPs earn little more than physician associates, official figures reveal


Salaried GPs are paid (on average) between £8000 and £10000 per session per year. If (as most partners do) one equates 8 sessions a week to full-time, then the WTE equivalent earnings for a salaried GP are between £64,000 and £80,000 - far more than the quoted figure in this article. Add to this the fact that partners often pay the indemnity costs of their salaried colleagues, and it's not really such a bad deal, with no management responsibility and a 'guaranteed' income. On the flip side, salaried GPs are not self-employed, so lose more to the taxman.
