General Practitioner

We have a vacancy for a List Holding GP, working every Tuesday and Wednesday along with 2 Fridays per month. This would average to 5 sessions per week, although this could be reduced slightly by working shorter hours on Tuesday and Wednesday. We would happily consider hours to fit in with school times or other commitments you may have on those days. The 2 Fridays you would be assigned to each month would be all day as our Duty Doctor working with the Same Day Team on acute patient care.

We are looking for a dynamic GP who is keen to work in an innovative and forward-thinking practice that has diversified our team to share the workload, particularly from the administrative side. This includes a team of 3 part-time Advanced Nurse Practitioners running our Same Day Triage service supported by Care Coordinators to help with reviewing the assessment list and online service requests. We also have Pharmacy Technicians to support prescribing, a Medical Reports and Patient Data Coordinator to complete medical reports, subject access requests and assist with safeguarding and have upskilled our Patient Services Team to assist with workflow and documentation management, referrals and 2week waits. Our Nursing team lead on long-term condition management.

We are looking for a team member who is flexible in their approach, adept at problem solving, open to new ideas, passionate about patient care and wellbeing, and happy to do home visits, remote consultations and triage work as well as routine face to face appointments. A GP who is keen to participate in team discussions to develop responsive and effective services for our patients would be ideal. We are also looking for applicants who are compassionate, resilient, have excellent communication skills and have a teamwork mentality with a good sense of humour. In return we can offer:

  • An established Practice with energy and appetite for growth and finding new ways of working
  • Collaborative working across all teams and with our Primary Care Network and other groups looking at the wider locality/population
  • The opportunity to develop specialities and/or project work to enhance our clinical services
