Salaried GP

Newbury Street Practice

The closing date is 30 June 2022

Job summary

Newbury Street Practice is a dynamic and friendly training practice in South Oxfordshire looking after approximately 15,500 patients. Due to exciting expansion of the practice, we are looking for a new colleague to join our established team.

We are a strong, supportive team and are pleased to work with colleagues at all points of their career. We can offer flexibility in terms of working arrangements (4-8 sessions per week) and would consider applications for those who have particular commitments, they have to work around.

We are committed to ongoing training and development of all our staff and have regular clinical meetings to which all are invited, including journal club, significant events, and quality improvement amongst others.

We recognise the challenges of the pandemic mean colleagues new to Practice may benefit from in-house mentoring & extra support which the experienced team of GPs would be happy to offer.

We are a well-established GP training practice and also host medical students from the local university. All doctors are encouraged to share their expertise in educating the next generation of GPs.

Main duties of the job

The practice offers patients a same day telephone triage system following a usual doctor list, which allows both flexibility in terms of offering patients the most appropriate advice and treatment, but also maintaining continuity of care. We do not have a duty doctor. There is a limited number of acute appointments combined with some pre-booked GP follow up appointments and some allocated admin time for our GP's.

The successful applicant will be responsible for delivering the full range of primary care services as part of the Practice, ensuring the highest standards of care for the differing needs of our patient population.

You will work closely with the Practices' multi-disciplinary team of other GPs, nurses and non-clinical staff to provide a high quality and accessible service to patients.

Our Clinical Team are well supported by a strong Patient Co-ordinator, Administrative, Secretarial and Management team, as well as having excellent IT systems in place, optimising the benefits of EMIS system, Accurx text, Online consultations and Docman 10.

About us

We place a strong emphasis on building a collaborative team both inside the practice with daily “Huddle” meetings as well as “compulsory” mid-morning coffee breaks, as well as outside social events – past successes include a “Bake off”, “Aunt Sally Skittles evening” and a “Pub Quiz”!

We also offer an “open door” policy to all staff and this has been particularly useful for clinical queries that we share amongst the GPs to make the most of the significant in-house expertise we have in the practice. We have recently started a weekly “clinical conundrum” case- based discussion lunch club for the clinical team to share some of those challenging cases & all share our thoughts.
