Job Details

Background -

You will be joining a popular and well thought of practice in an idyllic small-town setting on the edge of the Mendip Hills.

The practice has a supportive population and the team are led by a dynamic and well-known Partnership, frequently at the forefront of change and innovation.
Leading from the front, the Partners and management team have addressed the increasing challenges facing General Practice with a reduced workload, protected admin session, 15 minute appointments and greater collaboration with their local colleagues in secondary and community care.

The practice offers the ideal mix of traditional, community values as well as dynamism and forward thinking attitudes. For what it's worth, there is also an incredible view of the local countryside from the consulting rooms!

I have placed an experienced Salaried GP with this practice before receiving excellent feedback since then so I can confidently say this is a very highly recommended surgery.

Salary - £10,000 per session plus indemnity and BMA contract

Duration - November 2022 - December 2023 (ideally whole duration but would consider significant part)

Location - North Somerset, easily commutable from Bristol via the A38 or M5

The surgery -

  • Popular practice with excellent feedback from GPs previously placed there
  • Dynamic, forward thinking and high-profile Partnership
  • Geared towards reducing GP workload
    • Protected admin session (30 minutes per week per session worked) on top of daily admin time
    • Team of coders and workflow staff minimising GP admin anyway
    • Lower than average workload
    • Supported Duty set-up - three clinicians working together, average of 10 patients each per session
  • Very sociable team which meets regularly
  • Mixed-affluent demographic

Your role -

  • Salaried Maternity Cover
  • 6 sessions
  • Flexibility around school drop-offs/pick-ups
  • 15-minute appointments
  • 12 patients per session
  • Minimal home visits - mostly done by Paramedic
  • Interests encouraged - healthy for GPs to have additional passions

The benefits -

  • £10,000 per session
  • Indemnity paid
  • BMA contract
  • Likely option of staying permanently if desired
  • 6 weeks' annual leave
  • 1 week study leave
  • NHS pension
