Highbridge - Our Practice & Town

Highbridge Medical Centre is a large, well established practice with an on-site pharmacy. Our integrated, multidisciplinary team includes nurse practitioners and ECPs and provides a wide range of services to around 12,000 patients. We are part of Symphony Healthcare Services, the largest GP provider in Somerset so benefit from the experience and learning across a network of 20 practices.

We can offer the best of both worlds – a friendly practice in a market town location, yet with the support of a network of practices behind you so you can concentrate on patient care. Intrigued?  Please read on…

Our transport links are great - The M5, Bristol Airport and train routes to London mean that Highbridge is very conveniently located.

Highbridge is a charming town based on the edge of the Somerset Levels. The area is surrounded by sandy coast with Burnham-on- Sea and its iconic lighthouse a stone’s throw, and sandwiched between the Mendip Hills and Quantocks for exploring, horse-riding and mountain biking. Highbridge is a bustling town with a number of eateries, restaurants, and shops.

 

The role

You would undertake all the clinical duties associated with a GP working in primary care, without the responsibilities and risks associated with being a partner. We can offer opportunities from salaried through to employed and consultant level GP posts depending on your experience and the level of responsibility you take on at the practice.

All GPs working for us are paid as Employees, unlike Partners, which means less risk for you and more time to focus on patient care. We put patients first, with our Employed and Consultant GPs working flexibly according to need, so contributing to areas such as QOF, QI, training and research projects providing a huge amount of variety to the role. However, our Salaried GPs have a clearly defined job plan setting out the hours of work and responsibility and tasks associated with the role.

Through annual appraisal, we encourage career development and progression and are keen to support GPs who wish to extend their role, or have specialist skills which can be utilised in primary care. We recognise that some GPs will wish to stay salaried, and some will wish to assume more responsibility once they have found their feet and aspire to Employed or Consultant roles.

 

About Symphony Healthcare Services

Symphony Healthcare Services was established in 2016 as part of the award-winning Symphony Programme Vanguard, developing new models of care.  We now support 20 practices across Somerset (including one in Devon) providing care for 120,000 patients.

Symphony has developed a model where each practice is encouraged to operate autonomously, but as a subsidiary of Yeovil Hospital and with the backing and economies of scale from a central support team (particularly for HR and strategic management matters).

Providing NHS services is at the heart of what we do.  Our vision is to ensure that primary care is sustainable for patients and practices in Somerset, and we aim to be a national exemplar for primary care provision.  We work closely with our practice teams to support, develop and transform patient care and working practices with innovation and technology at the heart of what we do. We also work hard to make sure primary care has a loud voice in Somerset.

Highbridge Medical Centre joined Symphony Healthcare Services in 2017. By working at scale in primary care in Somerset we can offer you the opportunity to develop specialist skills with the support of a larger organisation to develop your GP career.

 

Benefits

  • support for those with specialist skills and experience
  • a Mentorship Scheme for newly qualified GPs who will be supported by a GP Trainer
  • car lease scheme

  • attractive relocation support
  • freedom to join our new in house GP locum agency, Symphony Flex, with additional competitive pay rates.
