General Practitioners, Locums and Non-GP Partners – PAY Transparency

Posted: October 11, 2021

In the 2020 GMS contract deal, agreements were made to publicly declare the names and earnings of any GP or non-GP Partner with NHS earnings exceeding £150,000 in a bid to improve pay transparency within the NHS. The rules were to apply for the 2019/20 year onwards.

Guidance has now been published on how to calculate NHS earnings and how to submit the relevant details:

If you are a GP or non-GP Partner and had NHS earnings in excess of £150,000 in 2019/20, you have until 12 November 2021 to submit the self-declaration.

In future years, you will have until the following 30 April after the year end (13 months to prepare and declare).
