Labour pledges £2.5bn for 'overhaul to primary care estate'


to wickerman | GP Partner/Principal13 Nov 2019 9:32am The Labour party offer to increase tax slightly on those earning more than £80,000 TAXABLE INCOME p.a. After expenses, Superannuation payments, and £12,500 personal allowance, how much does an average GP have as taxable income nowadays? When I retired 5yrs ago, I was being taxed on less than £80,000 taxable income per annum anyway, at that time. I thought, with Locums taking a big chunk these days, that maybe GP pay hadn't gone up that much. With £100,000 pa taxable income, a 5-10% increase in tax is only £1000-£2000 pa -- and nothing at my previous rate of pay. Overall, given the promise of substantial monies to go into the NHS, I think, worth it.
