GFCI protect both 240V and 120V?

I have a 60 amp GFCI spa disconnect that also has a slot for a 15 amp branch circuit. Is that automatically GFCI protected?

No....you may use a regular breaker and a gfi outlet to protect your circuit

or

a gfi breaker to protect your circuit

Given a subpanel with a 240 volt double GFCI breaker (such as the 60 amp one you have), that will protect the spa and associated components served by that breaker, both 120 volt and 240 volt equipment.

That double breaker will not provide ground fault protection for equipment served by a breaker in the next slot in the subpanel.

Many thanks.

Off I go to buy a GFCI. Better than getting fried.
