The Primary Care Team at the CCG have commissioned Healthwatch Staffordshire to conduct a patient engagement survey on Active Signposting (also known as ‘Care Navigation’) across South and East Staffordshire. Active Signposting can have a valuable impact in helping patients/carers see the most appropriate professional or service first time.
This survey is so we can gather patient and carer feedback and views on Active Signposting. The survey will focus on understanding how comfortable patients are with the process, how confident they are in the Receptionists understanding their needs, patients’ knowledge of alternative health professionals and services they can access and then their overall satisfaction.

GP Net Earnings 2017/2018
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Langton Medical Group in the last financial year was £64,345 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 1 full time GP and 9 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.
