Somerset is attracting GPs from cities and other areas across the UK to make the most of what the county has to offer.
Cheddar is more than its world famous cheese, still aged within the caves of the Gorge. An attractive market town situated just off the A38 and M5 surrounded by the cheddar gorge with its historic caves. It offers an unrivalled quality of life while having great road links to Bristol, Exeter, Bath and London with Bristol international airport on our doorstep. If you are into fitness, outdoor pursuits, the cheddar reservoir is a popular destination for water sports fans, birdwatchers, walkers and cyclists. Cyclists can also begin the Strawberry Line cycle ride in Cheddar heading North West towards the main line at Yatton. The primary schools of Somerset are justly renowned and have many a high performing independent co-educational secondary school with many international students.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a dedicated and elite team. A high standard of patient care, with good patient access and continuity is our utmost priority together with the work-life balance of our GPs and staff. This is a chance for a like-minded individual to join us in making our excellent service available to the wider community in Cheddar and the surrounding rural area. While only being 19 miles from the vibrant city of Bristol with its irrepressible creative spirit and of course the world famous balloon festival.
