All GP Practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g average pay) for GPs working to deliver GP services to patients at each practice.

The average pay for GPs working in the Coastal Medical Group in the financial year was £49,217 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 3 full time GPs and 21 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.

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 form a judgement about GP earnings, nor make any comparison with any other practice.
