We are looking for innovative Primary Care Clinicians, focused on delivery of high quality, effective clinical patient care across multiple NHS partners. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a healthcare revolution, driving transformational change for patients, clinicians, and the wider primary care landscape. 

Role requirements:

The work will involve patient consultations and the admin evolving from these consultations only.
You will become a core member of an exciting and supportive company that is integral to the ever-evolving digital healthcare landscape within the NHS.
You will be supported with continuous CPD opportunities and feedback on quality and performance.

Role overview:

The role will entail working remotely through the Push Doctor consulting platform. You will be consulting solely via video with patients of partnered NHS practices from different areas. Using your NHS smartcard, you will have full Locum GP access to the host practice clinical system (hosted on either EMIS Web or SystmOne).

You will be able to view and update the relevant clinical details on your patients' NHS medical records (e.g. results, documents, past consultations) and communicate with the host practices' admin teams (e.g. to send a task, to make a referral, to request investigations etc.).

In general, the post-holder will be expected to undertake all the normal duties and responsibilities associated with a GP working within primary care. This includes, but is not limited to, completing contemporaneous records, appropriate sign posting and safety netting of a patient, sending tasks and referrals and seeking appropriate advice for anything they are unsure about (whether that be clinical advice, operational and process advice or advice on IT/tech issues). The doctor will engage in a process of reflection where appropriate, they will consider their limitations and areas that need further development.

About You

  • GMC-registered General Practitioner
  • Acquired CCT
  • Active NHS Smartcard holder
  • Based in the UK and registered on a UK NHS Performers List (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland)
  • Able to work a minimum of 12 hours per month


Desirable Skills:

  • Previous experience of working through a digital medium and assessing patients through a video consultation with evidence of appropriate safety netting
  • Experience of working in a remote setting
