Managers Pay decline by 1%

Practice manager’s salaries have declined by 1% a new survey has shown.

An annual survey completed by the First Practice Management (FPM) group showed that salaries had dropped to £39,225 from £39,486.

It was also noticed that 50% of practice managers had not received a pay rise in the last year and that there were significant differentials between regions.

The lowest average salary for a practice manager in Scotland was £34,771, while in the south of England this rose to £41,954.

The average practice manager’s salary in the UK has declined by 1% during the past year, a new survey has shown.

The FPM group conducted the survey earlier this year and had over 900 responses from health bodies in England and the devolved regions.

Participants left several negative comments on the survey with one PM even going as far as to say: "I struggle on my salary with a family and mortgage so do 5+ hours at another surgery every week."

Additionally, just under a third of respondents reported receiving a bonus in the period covered by the survey, with the highest being £16,000 at a practice in the east of England while, in Scotland, one PM was given a bonus of £10.
