Our survey of staff pay rates took place in October / November 2012.

The summary tables show the hourly rates of pay for different job types.

In the tables, the column headed ‘Low’ shows the lowest rate of pay recorded in the survey for each job type, and the column headed ‘High’ shows the highest recorded rate. In many cases the Lows and Highs represent extremes, and we have therefore graphed the reported figures, and have delineated the graphs with red “boundary” lines to exclude these from our recommended range of salaries. Note, however, that the average salary reported for each job type does include these amounts, whereas the Minimum and the Maximum (of each “grade”) do not. The Minimum, Average and Maximum figures shown in the tables represent reasonable minimum, average and maximum pay rates, and may act as a guide to Practices in setting pay scales. 37 hours is assumed as the normal working week when calculating annual figures.

The survey was UK-wide, so some of the variations in rates of pay are due to geographical factors (city, rural, etc.). Also differing job responsibilities within each job type will account for further variations in rates of pay.

Staffing ratios - have a look at typical FTE administration and nursing staffing ratios / 1000 patient list size.

A big thanks to all practices that responded to the survey.
