Why does the practice take 30% – 40% of my billings?

GP Consults and Assistance Australia | People Medical

As a General Practitioner working in Australia, you earn a fixed amount per patient that you see (depending on the consult). This is usually paid to the practice, who then pays you a percentage (usually between 55% – 70% depending on your experience), retaining the remainder as a ‘service fee’.

The service fee that the practice retains assists the practice to pay for all of the aspects of running the practice that allows you as a General Practitioner to work. 

This includes: 

  • Rent of the premises
  • Utilities such as electricity, water, phone and internet
  • Insurances- both building, contents, indemnity and liability
  • Staff- including reception, practice management, nursing and other support staff
  • Technology- including licences, other software and all of the hardware
  • Furniture
  • Marketing & Advertising- flyers, Google, social media, signage
  • Disposables- such as dressings, tests, specimen jars (and so much more)
  • Equipment & Equipment Maintenance 
  • Individual GP signage, prescription pads and stamps

The practice takes care of as much as possible so that you can turn up to work and focus on what you do best- seeing your patients!
