GP Maternity Cover
We are looking for another list holding salaried GP to join our friendly, supportive and forward-thinking team. We are a team focused on maintaining a sustainable and enjoyable work environment. We strongly believe that fostering and maintaining a positive ethos and shared vision leads to high quality patient care.
We are committed to finding the right person for this role and are flexible regarding sessions/days worked, encouraging professional development.
We have GPs on the LMC, the Southern Primary Care Collaborative Board and Devon Training Hub. One of our GPs has just completed the GP Educational Supervisor’s course so that Mayfield Medical Centre is now a training practice again. Several of our GPs are “First 5”, another is joint Clinical Director of our PCN, Paignton and Brixham Primary Care Network. We provide the hub for Torbay Care Home Visiting Service, which was developed and piloted highly successfully at Mayfield.
This role would be equally attractive for a GP that has recently completed their training (and is therefore eligible for a NTP Fellowship), as well as for more experienced GPs.
We are passionate about advancing Primary Care to meet the current and future challenges; we want not only to be resilient and sustainable whilst providing high quality care, we want Primary Care to be enjoyable and vibrant.
We are currently embracing change, adapting and evolving through the Covid-19 Pandemic with patients being managed through telephone and video consultations along with e-Consult. Patients are seen face-to-face where these tools are not appropriate.
A typical “pre-Covid-19” session consisted of 14 face-to-face appointments with a mixture of 15 minute routine slots and on-the-day triaged appointments. Duty surgeries are carried out in pairs. Our Paramedics undertake the vast majority of the home visits and our prescribing Pharmacist team manages medication queries and reviews, along with repeat prescriptions. We aim to finish daily by 6pm.
We meet daily for coffee breaks and operate an ‘open doors’ policy. There are regular educational meetings and socials throughout the year.
