    and what do GP's earn if they have their own private practice?
    thanks.

    I also think the good doctor = high income thing is nonsense. How much private income you can make is mainly dependent on what you specialise in and where you work. A plastic surgeon or anaesthetist in London could make a lot of money privately (and doesn't have to be especially brilliant just competent and charismatic to charm people), a GP or psychiatrist in Fife would earn very little privately. Many of my colleagues choose not to work in private medicine for ethical reasons and because it can be a fangle fitting it in with your NHS job. On the whole NHS work is harder, more interesting (complex face reconstructions if a max fax surgeon or plastic surgeon v endless face lifts) and in many ways more prestigious as far as your peers are concerned than working exclusively privately. An increasing number of consultants want to work part time so stick with part time NHS work.
