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.

 

About You

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.

Company

Be the doctor you want to be at Practice Plus Group​

 

Welcome to Practice Plus Group, the country’s largest independent provider of NHS services.

We deliver a wide range of quality, flexible services to millions of patients across the UK. But what do we give the doctors who work for us?

In a word, freedom.

Our primary care services range from GP services and walk-in centres to urgent care and SARCs, out of hours services and offender health.

That means, as a doctor joining our team, you have the freedom to choose where you work. Do you want to specialise in one area? Go for it. Would you prefer a portfolio career, developing your skills and experience in a selection of services? That’s also fine by us. Whichever option you choose, one thing’s for sure: because we serve a rich mix of patient populations you can expect a wealth of professional challenges that will really test – and develop – your skills.

What’s more, you’re free to choose the hours you want to work. So you can join us on a full time basis, or fit your role at Practice Plus Group around existing work or lifestyle commitments. Our GP practices and walk-in centres are open late and at weekends, so you can work whatever mix of hours and days that suit you.

We also understand that you’d rather be treating patients than shuffling paper, so we free you from much of the admin that you’ll find in a traditional GP practice. Plus, because our GPs don’t buy into our practices, you can say goodbye to the logistical worries that come with running a practice. All in all, you’re free to get on with doing what you trained for – treating patients.

What else do we offer?

  • If you join us as a salaried GP, we’ll pay your medical indemnity costs.
  • We’ll support you in your continuing professional development, so that you continue to meet your appraisal and revalidation requirements.
  • You’ll be joining a supportive team of quality health professionals, including expert medical leads who will provide ongoing one-to-one support and guidance.

At Practice Plus Group we’re constantly adapting our healthcare services and models to suit the way people live now. If you like the sound of joining an innovative, forward-thinking healthcare provider where your skills and experience will be valued and developed, apply for one of our roles today.
