A spokesman for the PCC said a letter will be sent to the editor of the newspaper after ‘a handful of complaints, perhaps seven or eight'.
The story claimed GPs were earning up to £380,000 a year despite acknowledging that ‘in some cases figures include cash GPs have to pay out for staff salaries and rents'.
GPC chairman Dr Laurence Buckman has also written a private letter of complaint to the newspaper's editor, Paul Dacre.
A negotiation between the complainants and the newspaper would be sought to resolve the matter, said a PCC spokesman.
If a resolution cannot be reached, the commission will make a ruling as to whether the PCC code of practice has been breached.
