Average GP Earnings

NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised and the required disclosure is shown below. 

However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice and should not be used to for any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with other practices.

The average earnings for GPs working in Seaton Park medical Group in the last financial year ending in 2018/19 was £43,954 before taxation and National Insurance. 

This is for 2 full time GPs, 11 part time GPs and 3 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.

Living Well Coordinators

Our living well coordinator will be based across our regional Primary care network. She will help to enable patients, assisting them in taking control of their lives, by tapping into local resources and community groups. A primary function will be supporting patients with complex issues affecting their wellbeing, reducing health inequality through non-clinical means.
