Orthopaedic surgeons continue to be on average the highest earners in private practice, as Ray Stanbridge’s latest analysis demonstrates.
They’ve done very well! Gross incomes increased by about 1.6% between 2017 and 2018, rising from £190,000 to £193,000.
Costs fell by about 5.7% on average, dropping from £69,000 to £65,000. As a result, taxable profits rose by about 5.5% from £121,000 to £128,000.
Orthopaedic surgeons are still at the top of the tree in the independent practitioner income stakes.
