Are you looking for a GP role which can offer something different, pioneering, modern and innovative?
We are currently looking to speak to GP’s who would be interested in joining us on the early stages of this project.
Join our Swindon Hub as a Video Consultation GP
Our 5 Swindon practices are using a unique Central Hub Model to provide better patient access and greater support for the clinical team. The benefits are ultimately for patients as well as our clinical staff. The Hub Model allows the Clinical Officers (supported by the Hub GP) to deal with all administration within the practices. All patients are triaged through the Central Hub, allocating patients to the most appropriate clinician. All urgent cases will be triaged by the central hub. With the introduction of MSK Physiotherapists, Clinical Pharmacists, ECPs and ANPs in addition to GPs, we can offer better patient access whilst allowing GPs to focus on more complex cases.
On top of this, we’re also introducing a revolutionary service that enables our Swindon patients to have virtual consultations with a GP through their mobile devices and tablets. The service also allows patients to receive drug prescriptions, referrals to health specialists, and book health exams with nearby facilities even when they are not in the practice.
We are dedicated to supporting the NHS 5-year Forward View and plan to combine clinical telephone, video and triage services with face-to-face appointments to improve on our already successful record of patient care. As a Video Consultation GP you’ll provide virtual consultations and respond to the health and wellbeing needs of our NHS patients. You will have full access to our clinical system of regular patients (SystmOne).
This soon to be role is ideally going to be needed as full-time, however part-time will also be considered. Initially, you’d be based out of our Hub in Moredon (SN2 2JG) and flexibility on location would gradually increase to allow you to offer the virtual service from your home or office, if this was your preference.
