SPECIAL INTERESTS

Education

The practice provides training for General Practitioners. Registrars are with us for between six months to a year. They are fully qualified doctors who are coming to the end of their specialist training for General Practice. These doctors have spent three or more years in hospitals prior to entering Primary Care and are a valuable addition to the practice team.

We also provide training for medical students, who may be present during your consultation with either a doctor or nurse. The medical students are closely supervised and tend to see patients alongside one of the main doctors or medical professionals. If you do not wish the student to be present during your consultation then please advise the receptionist beforehand.

Research

Langport Surgery is pleased to be actively involved in research organised by the Primary Care Research Network which is part of the NHS National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and the UK Clinical Research Network (UKCRN). All the research that the practice is involved with has been approved by the NHS and therefore has ethical approval.

This means that your doctor may ask you if you want to be involved in a study the practice is supporting.

As a practice we are involved in research to improve the knowledge about illnesses and so develop better treatments for all patients including:

  • whether new treatments or ways of organising services are effective (do they work?)
  • whether those treatments or services are cost-effective (do they give value for money?)
  • how different health problems develop and progress over time – to help gain a better understanding of that health problem
  • the views of patients and health professionals about a particular treatment, intervention or service and how they might be improved

The results of research studies may be of interest to patients and useful to health professionals and managers in the NHS in helping to decide which treatments and services to provide.

All GP practices are required to declare the mean net earnings (e.g. Average pay) for GP’s working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.  This is required in the interest of the greater public accountability recognising GP pay is ultimately funded from tax paid by the public.

The average pay for GP’s working in Langport Surgery in the last financial year was £77,977 before tax and national insurance.  This is for 4 full time GPs, 2 part time GPs and 2 locum GPs (who worked in the practice for more than six months.)
