The article focuses on data which was released by Great Britain's National Health Service Information Center in a report entitled "The GP Earnings and Expense Enquiry 2005/2006 Final Report". The data revealed that general practitioners in Great Britain who worked alone earned an average of $265,100, which was much more than practitioners who work with six or more partners. The data also revealed that the pay of general practitioners in the country has doubled in real terms since 1988, and that their earnings rise until they reach the age of 60.
