Templer Care Network is a newly formed Primary Care Network in Newton Abbot. The member GP Practices include; Buckland Surgery, Cricketfield Surgery, Devon Square Surgery and Kingsteignton Medical Practice. We are looking for a part-time highly-experienced and confident Paramedic or Advanced Nurse Practitioner to work Monday to Friday from 10am to 11am starting time to suit successful candidate then work 6.5hours to include a half hour unpaid lunch break. We are looking for someone who can start as soon as possible to assist us with visiting patients in Care Homes and in their own homes over the winter. This will be both to respond to daily visit requests for acute care and may also include some pro-active visits with the aim of reducing visit requests and the requirement for primary or secondary care involvement. We would welcome applications for the 5days each week or for part of the week.

You will need to be highly organised and efficient to triage the visit requests sent to you by the Practices in the first half hour of your day and plan the logistics for your visits, ensuring fairness for all Practices whilst meeting the needs of the patients. The rest of your shift will be spent visiting the patients and completing the necessary updates to their medical records using SystmOne and Ardens templates. You will also need to send tasks and communicate back to the Patients’ Practice for support and to ensure patient safety and appropriate care and follow ups are in place, as needed. Attending monthly clinical and multi-disciplinary meetings at each Practice would also be required, if the day allows. Your input into improvements for developing visiting services will also be encouraged. Although this is a temporary post until the end of March 2020 there is scope for it to be extended or evolve to a permanent role within the PCN if funding allows.

Please be aware that to ensure patient safety there are essential pre-employment checks to be conducted including referencing and you must also hold a current Disclosure and Barring Service check along with professional registration.

For this post you will need to be able to drive and use your own vehicle with business use insurance but mileage will be paid.

Salary will be dependent upon qualifications and experience.

This role will be instrumental in this.

General Assistant Job Description

 

General Practitioners

We have an immediate vacancy for up to 6 sessions although are happy to wait for a few months for the right candidate and are also open to applications for all or part of that commitment.  We are looking for dynamic GPs who are keen to be involved in projects to improve patient services, processes and procedures or specific areas of responsibility of the Practice, such as research, training or quality improvement. Although our ideal would be somebody interested in becoming a Partner whether initially or in the future. We are offering a basic salary, upon application, that can be enhanced through Project Management Payments or Responsibility Management Payments that will be determined by the scope of the work take on and length of time. We will provide a relocation package for those wishing to relocate to Devon to take on these roles. It’s also important to note the majority of our face to face appointments are now 15minutes but with 10minute appointments available for follow ups and we are also finding innovate ways to reduce administrative workload to ensure we are reducing the risk of overload and negative stress. We already have upskilled our Patient Services Team to assist with workflow and documentation management and have more projects in the pipeline to reduce administrative and prescribing work for our GPs. We are also flexible in our approach to hours so if you’re looking for a Practice that will allow you to flourish as a skilled GP with significant opportunities for developing primary healthcare services and/or management skills whilst working in a way that suits your lifestyle then this could be an exciting prospect. The patient facing hours could be worked between school drop offs and pick-ups, or worked around other commitments or interests you may have, and we would support home working for completion of administrative and project management work.

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. We are also looking for an applicant to be compassionate, resilient, calm under pressure, have excellent communication skills and a teamwork mentality with a good sense of humour.
