A survey of over 1,300 UK practice managers reveals basic pay has risen by 2.16 per cent since 2007, but profit-related bonuses dropped by over 17 per cent.
This means overall, practice managers' total income has risen by just 1.47 per cent.
The average manager's income is now £36,095 compared with £35,556 in 2007, although there are substantial variances due to location and practice size.
Practice managers in the largest practices, with over 14,000 patients, averaged £43,574 total earnings a year, while those in the smallest practices, of less than 5,000 patients, earned £29,436.
