Salaried GP – Close Farm Surgery

  • Type: Permanent
  • Role type: GPs
  • Location: South Gloucestershire
  • Practice(s): Close Farm Surgery

4-6 sessions per week

Salary: £10k per session

Due to retirement and the expansion of our clinical team, Close Farm Surgery are looking to appoint a dedicated and enthusiastic Salaried GP to our friendly, semi-rural, part-dispensing practice, located midway between Bristol and Bath.

About us

Our clinical team consists of 3 partners, 5 salaried GP’s, a retainer, physiotherapist, clinical pharmacist, 3 nurses, 3 HCA’s and a pharmacy technician.

 

We are very fortunate to have a really lovely reception team who are skilled in care navigation and two document management clerks, who significantly reduce the administrative burden on clinicians. We also have access to emergency care practitioners, so our home visit rate is extremely low.

 

We work really closely with our community team (Matron, District nurses, OT’s, Physio, SW, Social Prescribers) and have weekly MDT’s to help us support and manage our complex housebound and palliative patients.

 

We continue to operate a telephone triage model and doctors can bring patients in, if they feel that a face-to-face appointment is required.  However, we are always monitoring demand, to try and proactively flex our service to maintain a manageable workload.

 

 The practice ethos is very much based around care, support, continuity of care and good team working to provide excellent, responsive patient care.  Daily, informal chats are encouraged at our morning coffee break and we have regular clinical meetings and whole team training afternoons.

 

We are a high-achieving QOF Practice using the EMIS Web Clinical System and knowledge of both would be beneficial, although full training would be provided.

 

We would love for you to come and work for us.
