GP - General Practitioner

Nottingham City General Practice Alliance


This job is now closed

Job summary

We are looking for motivated, enthusiastic GPs to join our expanding practice teams across locations in Nottingham City. We actively encourage GP input into delivery and development of forward thinking, patient centred services.

Parliament Street Medical Centre is a city centre practice with a growing list size. It has a young population with a low rate of home visits. The practice has a history of achieving exemplary patient care (outstanding CQC rating). It has a high level of patient need around Severe Multiple Disadvantage and the existing team will work to support and develop new clinicians around this.

Bilborough Medical Centre & Grange Farm Medical Centre are in the West of the City, serving a very deprived area of Nottingham. They have a more traditional population with significant health problems and complex needs. The practices are looking to develop and embed innovative multidisciplinary team working and intend to expand this further to include many of the new ARRS roles.

Main duties of the job

The vacancies are for 4-8 sessions per week, though we are happy to discuss other options if appropriate.

Successful candidates will manage a caseload, including duty doctor responsibilities and deal with a wide range of health needs in a primary care setting, ensuring the highest standards of care for all. They will be an integral part of Nottingham City General Practice Alliance (NCGPA) which will provide opportunities for skills development and career progression such as developing special interests in clinical, educational, training or research areas.

Candidates will also have the opportunity to develop clinical and managerial lead areas within the practices such as safeguarding and clinical governance.

Part of the NCGPAs new strategy is also to develop teaching and training opportunities in all of its practices.
