Sedbergh Medical Practice – Due to upcoming retirement of GP Partner

A unique opportunity to work in a small friendly rural GP practice with traditional values delivered in a modern healthcare setting. Sedbergh is a small town within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, in an area of outstanding natural beauty which is full of rural charm and set within a stunning back drop of the Howgill Fells. Sedbergh is a designated book town and home to the prestigious Sedbergh School, whilst being only 10 minutes’ drive from junction 37 of the M6 (Lancaster 30 minutes/Kendal 20 minutes/Manchester 90 minutes)

Due to an upcoming retirement of one of our GP Partners we are looking for an enthusiastic, dedicated, and self-motivated, forward thinking GP with flexibility to join our friendly team. Ideally we are looking for 6/7 sessions at the start of the week (Mon/Tues/Wed/Thur) with a view to partnership.
