About The Role
As part of Practice Plus Group having recently been awarded the healthcare contract at HMP Onley and Rye Hill, the opportunity has arisen for a General Practitioner to join the talented Healthcare team on site. This role will be an exciting chance to further develop your clinical and medical skills when we will begin delivering services in October 2022.
What will you be doing?
As one of the GP’s at HMP Rye Hill and HMP Onley, you’ll provide clinical oversight across a challenging, yet demanding patient group. You will be pivotal in engaging the clinical workforce to support the delivery of the organisation’s objectives and will gain insight and training in Mental Health and Substance Misuse.
As a member of the Multi-Disciplinary Team, the General Practitioner will provide clinical assessment and diagnosis to patient’s requirements and make timely decisions regarding future management. You will also provide a highly specialist resource to other healthcare staff, patients and carers and have active involvement in clinical governance/effectiveness activities. It doesn’t end there; you will have a chance to become actively involved in audit, teaching and training (management of substance misuse and/or blood borne viruses) as well as helping us to adapt the service to the ever-changing needs of the patients.
MBChB or MBBS qualified, you’ll be registered with the GMC and on a PCT Medical Performers List. RCGP1 part 1 is desirable.
Whilst the role offers a salary of up to £114, 950 per annum for 40 hours per week, we appreciate flexibility around working hours and therefore will also be welcoming applications from portfolio GPs who would like to explore the potential for alternative working hours. This role is set to be split equally across both sites, details of which can be discussed at interview.
