About The Role
Perhaps you want to broaden your clinical experience as part of a portfolio career. Perhaps you need the freedom of more flexible hours. Perhaps you just relish a new challenge. When you join the multidisciplinary team in our Clinical Assessment Service (in Dorking, Ipswich or available as homeworking), you’re back in control.
As the largest independent provider of NHS services, Practice Plus Group is delivering a new model of Integrated Urgent Care that reduces pressures on services and staff. By bringing together NHS 111 call centres, clinical assessment and other urgent care services, we enable patients to access the right care, when they need it. It’s better for everyone.
This is the perfect chance to use and develop all your skills and expertise as a General Practitioner, providing diagnosis, treatment, advice and referrals to other healthcare resources, via the phone. You will also use our electronic prescribing system to effectively manage the patient.
Based in the dedicated Clinical Assessment Service (CAS) supporting our NHS 111 call centre, you’ll be working autonomously within your sphere of competency as a lead clinician in a multi-skilled team that includes advanced nurse practitioners, registered nurses, UCPs, mental health and dental nurses, prescribing pharmacists and pharmacy advisors.
We are proud of our strong, stable infrastructure that ensures clinical safety and provides senior-level clinical support, 24 hours a day. You’ll be able to keep your skills up to date with a CPD programme – and can expect education and training tailored to your needs and future plans. We work closely with the NHS to provide opportunities to learn, innovate and contribute new ideas. In addition to our bespoke Learning Management System, we offer discounted national update/clinical topic refreshers, support to become a supervisor/GP registrar trainer, plus a host of regional and national career development opportunities.
We can offer this role as either permanent, bank or self-employed.
What you will need:
- GMC registration certificate and inclusion on the GP Performers List with a valid CCT.
- Experience to confidently manage acute and chronic presentations for both adult and paediatric patients, with a proven ability to maintain and monitor high standards of care.
- Excellent listening and communication skills, with experience of telephone assessment and good IT/keyboard skills.
What you will get:
- Competitive pay and indemnity reimbursement.
- A flexible choice of daytime, evening or overnight shifts (typically eight hours long).
- 25 days’ annual leave (salaried full time equivalent), increasing with service up to 28 days per year + bank holidays.
- Practice Plus Group benefits including online shopping discounts and vouchers, pension, free eye tests, cycle to work schemes and more.
