GP Headache Specialist - remote (full training provided)

Join the National Migraine Centre and enjoy flexible, remote working from anywhere in the UK

With full training provided, become a GP Headache Specialist with a respected national charity and enjoy the flexibility of choosing your hours in half day sessions, working from home and spending more time with patients and less on admin.

Our doctors benefit from:

  • bespoke, specialist training
  • flexible working, from anywhere in the UK
  • longer appointment times than in general practice
  • the support of a friendly team of headache specialists
  • a less bureaucratic environment, with no home visits or emergency provision
  • development of a specialist interest and real job satisfaction
  • an enhanced professional profile with a respected charity, with the opportunity to undertake media work

About the role

You’ll provide outpatient headache assessment and management via remote consultations via video and telephone, working flexibly in blocks of four-hour sessions.

Once trained, you’ll provide high standards of clinical care by:

  • diagnosing primary and secondary headaches
  • identifying and managing ‘red flag’ symptoms
  • developing collaborative management plans with patients
  • attending courses and conferences
  • writing reports for patients and GPs, including recommendations for management, investigations and onward referrals, as well as letters for employers or schools
  • providing training for other GP colleagues
  • fostering good working relationships with referring practitioners

Once trained, you will also have the opportunity to get involved with other charitable activities, including patient and professional education programmes, research, our Heads Up podcast, plus media and social media campaigns.

About you

  • GMC-registered medical practitioner and GP
  • Neurology experience advantageous but not essential
