New data on gender pay gap in medicine
29 March 2019 – Gov.uk
The biggest study of gender pay in the public sector has found that male doctors in the NHS earn 17% more, on average, than their female peers.
Female GPs experience the greatest disparity and earn, on average, £75,600 – a massive £38,000, or a third, less than the £113,600 average salary among male colleagues.
The review, led by Prof Dame Jane Dacre, also found that male consultants – senior doctors – in the service outnumber female ones by almost two to one, despite the growing numbers of women going into medicine.
