GP Specialty Training Payscales 2010-2011

These are the current payscales for GP trainees in effect from April 2010 – April 2011.  The GP Registrar supplement is currently 45%.

GP Specialty Training Payscales

You should start on the paypoint with basic pay that is closest to your current basic pay.  E.g. if your current basic is £29,500, you will move onto the StR Min scale, with a basic pay of £29,705 and so on. You will move onto the next point on the scale on the anniversary of your increment date (this should be on your last payslip).

When you are on paypoint StR3 or higher (shown in yellow above), you are entitled to an extra 5 days of annual leave – so you will get 30 days instead of 25 in addition to bank holidays.

    So, a FY2 Doctor entering GP training would start at StR minimum, whereas an an ST6 in Emergency medicine who was changing career path would start at £41,152 before banding? This is probably showing my ignorance, but are there a lot of high banded GP positions (especially during the training years)?

    Anyway, thanks for posting this: it’s quite illuminating.

      Yes an FY2 entering straight from foundation with no previous experience will start at StRMin salay scale. An ST6 will start on whichever payscale is closest to their current payscale – an ST6 trainee MAY start on a basic of £41k, but if they did a couple of years of other trainig jobs before entering thie current rotation, they could be on a higher basic.

      At least 18 months of the GP training rotation will be in general practice, which comes with a fixed 45% banding (the last column). Some of the hospital jobs will carry no banding, and most will be low banding (20%). A few jobs may carry higher banding (e.g. paediatrics or in some cases A&E).

      Hope this is helpful.
