Salaried GP

Southbourne Surgery


This job is now closed

Job summary

Our surgery is located close to Chichester in the village of Southbourne. We are within walking distance of the local farm shop, which is a good thing if you like pies and not a good thing if you are trying to avoid unhealthy food!

Our team is a growing one and we aim to look after all of our staff through a well being program. We work hard to look after each other as well as our patients and try to have fun along the way.

If you choose to join our surgery you will be joining at a time when we are growing and developing with plans to extend the building by adding new consultation rooms.

We have a vacancy for a salaried GP for 6 - 8 sessions. This is a new position in the surgery which we is being created because of a projected increase in patient numbers over the next 3 -5 years.

Visits to the surgery are very welcome.

Main duties of the job

You must be a Registered GP with the GMC, possess the right to work in the UK and be included on NHS performers list.

About us

We currently have three salaried GPs, an Advanced Paramedic Practitioner, three nurses, two HCAs, a phlebotomist and six partners. We are increasing our administrative team in order to increase admin support for all of our clinical staff.

We offer a well being voucher for all staff, membership of the NHS pension scheme and six weeks annual leave plus statutory holidays.

Visits to the surgery are welcomed so that you can see us in action (which may or may not put you off!).
