Are you looking for a supportive environment and a substantial “Golden Hello”? Come and work for us!

Green Valleys Health is a newly merged group comprising Emersons Green Medical Centre and Leap Valley Surgery. Our two practices currently work independently, but there are exciting times ahead as we plan to bring them together into a single large operation. Together we look after about 23,000 patients and our population is growing as new housing is developed nearby. We currently have a vacancy for a salaried GP to join our practice for 4-8 sessions per week on a permanent basis. We can be flexible around the timing and rota and can provide mentorship for newly qualified GPs.

There are currently 6 partners and 5 salaried GPs working across our two practices. We work across three sites in Downend, Emersons Green and Yate. You will predominantly be working at the Downend and Yate sites which comprise Leap Valley Surgery.

Our team includes skilled Advanced Nurse prescribing Practitioners who undertake telephone triage every day as well as chronic disease management which greatly reduces the burden of work. We are currently working to expand that team and develop a truly nurse-led on-call / urgent care service across both practices where GPs can focus on the work that only you can do, not swamped by minor illnesses. A fair share of on-call for a 4-8 session doctor would be 1-2 sessions a week.

Other benefits include:

  • Indemnity cover included
  • Substantial “Golden Hello” on joining
  • Low home visit rate
  • Training practice with regular in house teaching.
  • Support to develop a special interest (we already have MSk and Paeds GpwSIs in house)
  • Supportive environment for your ongoing personal development
  • Low paperwork with e-prescribing and most paperwork (referrals, coding, scripts) done by admin staff
  • Modern and purpose built health Centre
  • Retail park with banks, nursery, superstore, shops and restaurants nearby
  • Minutes from M4 / M5 / M32 and Bristol ring road
