Cricketfield Surgery Vacancies

General Practitioner

We have a vacancy for a 6 session GP, ideally working Thursday and Friday each week with either a Monday or Wednesday to suit the successful candidate. We are also open to considering a non-list holding Triage Duty GP who would then work solely in our Same Day Team. Either way, 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 an Advanced Nurse Practitioner and Triage Nurse running our Same Day Triage service, a Senior Pharmacy Technician to support prescribing, a Medical Reports and Patient Data Coordinator to complete medical reports, subject access requests and assist with safeguarding. We also have Patient Pathways Leads to support the Same Day Team as well as work with eConsults, 2 week waits, referrals and tasks and we have upskilled our Patient Services Team to assist with workflow and documentation management.

We have a broad skill set amongst the team so are not looking for any particular speciality or area of interest, instead we are open to all GP applicants with a view to supporting them with their preferred areas of primary healthcare. You do need to be flexible in your approach, adept at problem solving, open to new ideas, passionate about patient care and wellbeing, and inspired by the wider NHS plans and opportunities, such as Primary Care Networks. We are also looking for applicants who are compassionate, resilient, calm under pressure, have excellent communication skills and have a teamwork mentality with a good sense of humour.

Salaried GP Job Description

 

Non-Patient Facing General Practitioner

We have a vacancy for a GP to join our team, working remotely for a minimum of 16 hours a week to complete prescription requests, review pathology results and process and action tasks for patients.  Ideally we would like Monday to Friday covered but would consider a job share. There may also be times where additional hours may be offered, such as peak periods and during other clinical staff absences.

This is a non-patient facing, non-list holding, more administrative role but we would like to invite the successful candidate to clinical meetings, training events and social events. You will be a valued member of the team and there is likely to be scope for the role to evolve, or for you to transfer to a patient facing or triage duty doctor role in the future.

You will need to be methodical, self-motivated, flexible in your approach, have a good attention to detail, adept at problem solving and even potentially review and improve systems and processes.  We are also looking for applicants who have excellent communication skills, confident working alone but keen to work within the team and are compassionate with a drive to positively affect patient care. In return we can offer:

  • An established Practice with energy and appetite for growth and finding new ways of working
  • Competitive base salary
  • Optional project work available to suit your interests and skill set with additional remuneration to enhance your pay
  • Future partnership opportunity, either as full equity or fixed share with reduced responsibility and risk
  • Collaborative working across all teams and with our Primary Care Network and other groups looking at the wider locality/population
  • Good Practice staff reward scheme
  • Proactive staff wellbeing and support of work-life balance – currently working on achieving our Wellbeing Charter accreditation
  • Encouragement and support with external interests and opportunities you may have
