Part Time

Exceptional opportunity at our Practice in Dulverton, Exmoor, which has been rated as 'Outstanding' by the CQC following an inspection in April 2022. Up to 4 sessions with attractive and comprehensive remuneration package; excellent relocation support.

We are proud to be an accredited training practice as a part of the Somerset GP Vocational Training Scheme so would welcome and support newly qualified GPs. We can provide an assigned GP trainer, access to an in-house GP Mentorship Scheme and we support the NHS GP Fellowship Scheme so that you hit the ground running.


Dulverton, Exmoor - Our Practice & Town


We have a modern purpose built surgery with a dispensary situated within the building. Our practice list is about 4,000 patients so small enough for you to know our patients well, but we’re also part of Symphony, the largest GP provider in Somerset so benefit from the experience and learning across a network of 20 practices. 

If you love the outdoors and nature you will feel at home working at Exmoor Medical Centre. Based in Dulverton on the edge of Exmoor National Park, it provides easy access to walking and cycling along with kayaking and windsurfing on the nearby Wimbleball Lake. We are just a 45 minute drive from Taunton, Exeter and Barnstaple, across the beautiful Somerset countryside.

We ensure our clinicians have a manageable day through the introduction of GP early and late clinical shifts allowing for a healthier workload with flexibility and remote working for administrative tasks. Our registered list is cared for by our diverse multidisciplinary team of GPs, advanced nurse practitioners, practice nurses, HCA’s and a friendly and efficient administration team.

Exmoor Medical Centre is part of Symphony Healthcare Services, a large and innovative primary care provider in Somerset. By working at scale in primary care we can offer you the opportunity to develop specialist skills with the support of a larger organisation to develop your GP career. We are also a member of West Somerset PCN which is renowned for its pioneering Living Better initiative.


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 Ltd 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.

Exmoor Medical Centre joined Symphony Healthcare Services in 2020. By working at scale in primary care in Somerset we can offer you the opportunity to develop specialist skills in the areas of clinical management, training or leadership with the support of a larger organisation to develop your GP career.



So that our GPs achieve the life balance they deserve, and are rewarded for their skills and experience, and flourish as individuals, we offer:

  • flexible roles and working options
  • support for those with specialist skills and experience
  • a Mentorship Scheme for newly qualified GPs who will be supported by an experienced GP mentor
  • car lease scheme
  • cycle to work scheme
  • attractive relocation support freedom to join our new in house GP locum agency, Symphony Flex, with additional competitive pay rates.
  • centralised hubs for Workflow and Medicines Management, reducing the admin burden on GPs
  • standard and consistent work practices built on best practice
