Mayfield Medical Group: Salaried GP

We are looking for a 4-6 session GP to join our team in well-established practice in the historically important town of Jarrow, South Tyneside, a coastal district with famous beaches, soaring cliffs and a short commute from central Newcastle.

With both the A1 and the Tyne Tunnel within a few minutes' drive away, there are excellent transport routes, mostly against the flow of rush hour traffic.

We are a supportive, friendly, sociable, resilient and expanding practice. Our team consists of 3 GPs and 4 amazing Nurse Practitioners, supported by excellent Management, Reception and Administrative teams, Practice Nurses with individual interests, up-skilled HCAs, and enthusiastic FY2s, all with a plethora of individual special interests and skills, serving a list size of 9300 patients.

Very low home visit rates, streamlined admin, full EPS prescribing and flexible working, means a better than average work-life balance.

Our supportive environment focuses on teaching and training: both for our staff, and our patients who have realistic expectations. Our GPs all have additional interests including Clinical Director of the local PCN, vice-chair of the Local Medical Committee, and Enhanced Health in Care Homes Lead for the PCN. We are a Foundation-training practice, as well as medical student mentoring from nearby Newcastle University. There are lots of opportunities for both new and experienced GPs within the practice and the wider Primary Care areas.

Our ethos is to focus on excellent patient-centred primary care, by ensuring we do not take on unfunded secondary care work, and by managing our resources in a carefully organised way.

Lots of social gatherings within the practice family: coffee every mid-surgery, lunches out, and nights out happen regularly (pandemics permitting!).

Salary is experience-dependent, and very favourable! Indemnity included. Type of post is negotiable, including partnership, with healthy accounts reflecting our forward-thinking organisation.
