Declaration of GP Earnings 2017/18
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is published 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 form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparisons with any other practice.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (eg average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Crouch Oak Family Practice in the last financial year was (2017/18) £49,543 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 1 full time GP, 10 part time GPs and 1 locum who worked in the practice for more than six months.
The practice was started in the 1950's, initially by a single doctor. The practice steadily increased in size until the old surgery was too small and in 1982 we moved to the present health centre. Since moving, the practice has grown significantly and new partners both male and female have joined to service the needs of our patients in the present climate of the changing NHS.
In April 1989 we adopted the name of The Crouch Oak Family Practice. The Crouch Oak, which once marked the boundary of Windsor Forest, and under which Queen Elizabeth was said to have dined, stands in Crouch Oak Lane, next to the practice.
In 1996 Pelrose House, a three-storey extension, was built next to the existing health centre to accommodate expanding services. As part of this development, we were fortunate enough to integrate an Eye Care Centre into the health centre.
