A primary care network consists of groups of general practices working together with a range of local providers, including across primary care, community services, social care and the voluntary sector, to offer more personalised, coordinated health and social care to their local populations. Networks would normally be based around natural local communities typically serving populations of at least 30,000 and not tending to exceed 50,000.

This surgery and the doctors here are members of a Consortium of Research General Practices in North Staffordshire.
We work in partnership with the Primary Care NIHR Clinical Research Network at Keele to carry out important research. Our research is funded by public bodies and charities (MRC, ARC and The Welcome Trust).
Research is an important part of healthcare. It is used to learn more about certain illnesses and to identify the most effective way of treating patients.
Please contact reception who can provide you with a leaflet called 'Health Research Things YOU need to consider'.
Disclaimer: NHS England requires that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown below. 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, or to make any comparison with any other practice.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (eg average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Biddulph Valley Surgery in the last financial year was £46,507 (based on 7 part-time GPs).
