About us: We are an independent GP Practice with just short of 6000 patients over two sites. We hold family values as an integral part of running the surgeries as well as striving to maintain a good work/life balance which ultimately increases drive and application during the course of day to day work. Our set up comprises 2 partners [one a GP partner], Practice Manager, 2 long term locums alongside 2 permanent ANP's, a nurse and HCA and 9 non-clinical staff, whom all work between both sites when required.
Loyalty and kinship have been enjoyed in our team orientated practice, with colleagues tending to leave due to retirement or relocation only.
We hold regular meetings at all levels, where everyones' contribution is welcomed.

In general the post-holder will be expected to undertake all the normal duties and responsibilities associated with being a GP in a primary care setting.
Main duties: The post-holder will undertake clinical sessions (routine and on-call) during the opening hours of the surgery, which may comprise face to face appointments, video or telephone appointments plus home visits.
