Britain’s highest earning GP is paid £600k a YEAR – four times the PM’s salary

BRITAIN’S highest earning GP is paid more than £600,000 a year four times the PM’s salary.

Many of us often think about how much money do GPs make? but are too afraid to say out loud is, people are curious how rich doctors must be. I always find this question interesting, great difference between wealth and income confuses many.

A Sun probe found the unnamed NHS medic was one of 164 whose pay packets were in excess of £200,000.

Campaigners last night questioned whether such “outrageous” salaries can represent good value for money.

News of the sky-high earnings comes as numbers of full-time family medics in the NHS are falling.

Separate stats also show a record 34 per cent of patients waited eight days or more to see one in October.

One GP earned £600,000-£700,000 in pensionable pay, with experts claiming they are likely to run multiple practices.

Another got £500,000-600,000, while two made £400,000-500,000 in 2017/18. A further 14 were paid £300,000-400,000, with 146 earning £200,000-300,000.

Nearly 5,500 earned £100,000-200,000, according to figures from the NHS Business Services Authority.

PM Boris Johnson, who earns £150,000, said he will increase the number of GPs by 6,000 in five years.

Ministers have expressed any GP receiving more than PM’s £150,000 salary to have their pay published under an NHS transparency drive.
