Part Time


Montpelier Health is an innovative and forward looking partnership comprising two practices, Montpelier Health Centre and Pilning Surgery.  Montpelier Health Centre serves a diverse inner city population of approximately 21700 patients, with Pilning Surgery providing services to 4500 patients in a rural location.  For both practices, our vision is to provide and support wellbeing at the heart of our communities.

We are looking to recruit a committed and motivated GP, with at least three years’ experience, at our Pilning Surgery, for six sessions a week, working flexibly to assure some on call cover and extended hours. Extra clinical responsibility will be required, with areas of special interest being accommodated.

Our practice team in Pilning currently comprises a GP partner and an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, supported by a team of experienced nurses and clinical pharmacists who work across both of our practices.  We  have excellent working relationships with our community and social care providers, having well established multi disciplinary team meetings covering frailty, dementia and palliative care.

We also work very successfully with third sector partners and have an extremely active Patient Participation Group with whom we work very closely.

We are a friendly and supportive team and have the benefits of working with our inner city practice to share learning which contributes to our strong focus on education and training.

We hope to start training GPs and/or F2 doctors at the practice so an interest in training would be welcome.  Montpelier Health Centre is an active training practice and we have trainees from several disciplines including GP ST2 and 3, F1/2 doctors, medical students, physician associate students from University of West of England and pharmacists.  Our current clinical team consists of several former trainees who have opted to join us for the long-term and develop their career based within Montpelier Health.

We are also actively involved in our Primary Care Network, Severnvale PCN, which offers opportunities for partnership working through innovation and new quality initiatives.

Pilning Surgery is situated in the village of Pilning in South Gloucestershire which is well served by having a local primary school, a shop and a pharmacy next to the practice.  Pilning also has good road and motorway links. We welcome informal enquiries and visits to the practice.


The purpose of the role is to manage a clinical caseload and deal with a wide and diverse range of health needs in a rural setting, ensuring the highest standards of care for all registered and temporary patients in accordance with the duties and responsibilities as set out by the Royal College of General Practitioners and the General Medical Council.  The role will also include participating in a rota for being the named GP (on call).  The working day is from 8.00 a.m. until 6.30 p.m.  However, these hours may be flexed to ensure delivery of extended hours and improved access.  The role will also include additional clinical responsibility based on the post holder’s interests and skills.  Some attendance at PCN meetings may be required.
