Care Quality Commission 08/07/2021
We carried out a review of the data available to us about Chelsfield Surgery on 08-07-2021. We have not found evidence that we need to carry out an inspection or reassess our rating at this stage.
This could change at any time if we receive new information. We will continue to monitor data about this service.
The average pay for GPs working in the practice of Chelsfield Surgery in the last financial year was £89,988 before Tax and National Insurance.
This is for 2 Full Time GPs and 3 Part Time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is published and the required disclosure is shown above. 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.”.
