BMA says GPs earnings figures misleading5th August 2009
The British Medical Association has hit back at national newspaper reports claiming that GPs are now earning as much as £380,000 a year.
It argues that a lot of the figures quoted represent practice income rather than GP earnings after an investigation by the Daily Mail found a GP in Colchester earning £380,394, one in Norfolk earning £310,000 and that some GPs are receiving £204 an hour for providing extended opening hours. The BMA said in many cases the figures did not “tally with statistics based on GP tax returns.”
