DOCTORS in the South Central NHS area – which include Hampshire – have seen a drop of more than two per cent in their salaries.

In 2009/10, GPs in the area were paid on average £105,300, according to the NHS Information Centre.

But in 2010/11, this fell by 2.2 per cent to £103,000.

These figures are for contracted GPs and their income before tax.

Information Centre chief executive Tim Straughan said: ‘While contractor GPs’ gross earnings move upwards, this small rise is offset by the increase in practice running costs.’
