6 session GP (Permanent) - Stoke Gifford & Conygre Medical Centres

As a practice, Stoke Gifford Medical Centre works very hard to create an environment where our GPs can flourish.  We strive to be dynamic, forward thinking and friendly – accepting that the work is hard but that there are steps that we can take to change and improve.  We are a training practice and are seeking a 6 / 7 session GP to join our rapidly expanding team.

We recognise the pressures that GPs are under and make every effort to work with our associates to create working days that are manageable, rewarding and fun.  Our GPs are all involved in reviewing our systems and processes and are encouraged to participate in driving change.  For example, in reviewing how we manage our appointments and utilise askmyGP.  We have a daily huddle where GPs can raise clinical queries, ask for help and share some important social time.  Associates are buddied with a GP partner for mentoring and we have an associate led monthly education programme in addition to operational planning meetings.  We also try and have fun with social events and daily opportunities to unwind and have a laugh during lunchtime yoga!

The GP team of 6 partners and 6 associate GPs are supported by 2x NPs and a nursing team.  Together we care for over 18,300 patients, with more growth expected.  Services are delivered from 2 purpose built and partner owned premises.  Our very friendly and professional team have a strong multi-disciplinary working ethos and enjoy supporting each other.
