GP Net 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.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Millcroft Medical Centre in the 2020/21 financial year was £107,282 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 9 full time GPs and 6 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than 6 months.
No Smoking Policy
Please be aware that Millcroft Medical Centre within Eagle Bridge Health and Wellbeing Centre, operates a strict non-smoking policy and smoking is not permitted anywhere within our building nor immediately outside of the entrances.
Many thanks for your cooperation.
