Marsden Road Health Centre: GP Vacancy

Are you a GP  looking for an dynamic friendly, well-established expanding Practice?

Would you like up to £10,000 and have the opportunity to work in the practice that is rated number one by patients within South Tyneside?

Then look no further!

Located in modern premises in South Shields, a coastal town which has sandy beaches, soaring cliffs and beautiful bays about five miles downstream from Newcastle. The ideal team member will have a passion for high quality patient care, be happy to engage with the team, and will be as excited as we are about the new opportunities and services we can develop together for the local community.

Building and maintaining strong relationships between Doctors, Health Professionals and patients is essential to the way we work.

Just a flavour of who we are

Our team who operate from two sites  comprises of 10 Partners, 6 salaried GPs, 2  Pharmacists, 9 Nurses, 5 HCA’s, 1 Registrar and 2 F2 GPs who look after just over 22,000 patients, many of which have been with us across generations. All of our clinical staff are supported by a well-established supportive admin team comprising of 31 staff of differing roles and are led by experienced practice management team. Clinic documents and results are handled by our workflow management system which means reduced admin for clinicians so they only receive the odd task.

All the team get together in our staff room for coffee, food and a catch up every day. We also have a private staff garden with patio tables and chairs although we can’t always guarantee sunshine!! We have had great feedback from Locums and attached staff about the benefit of getting together as it offers a supportive environment to bounce ideas around and get to know one another! We have a low turnover of staff due to high satisfaction in our workforce, as well as our shared emphasis on work- life balance.

We are very flexible & happy to discuss start and finish times of surgeries and number of sessions. As a training Practice we encourage specialist interests and positively support development of additional skills for personal development.

We consistently score high QOF and enhanced service achievements; our CQC rating is good.  We have achieved the top rating locally for the last two years from the patient survey which we are very proud of.

  • Golden hello of up to £10,000
