Map: How UK GPs face a postcode lottery over income

GPs across the UK face a postcode lottery for income, with sharp falls and rises in different parts of the country and significant gaps in earnings between NHS regions, official data reveal.

GPs in the Midlands and East of England region earn more than their counterparts anywhere in the UK, with average income before tax of just above £107,000 a year.

In Scotland and Wales, GP income is substantially lower - around 15% below the average for England's highest-earning region.

Find out how your area has fared, and where pay has risen or fallen fastest in the last year in GPonline's interactive map below.
