Somerset is attracting GPs from cities and other areas across the UK to make the most of what the county has to offer.
Axbridge is a small town in Somerset near the southern edge of the Mendip Hills. Wedmore is a large village situated in the Somerset levels between the River Axe and the River Brue, often called the Isle of Wedmore. We are very close to Cheddar (which is more than its world famous cheese, still aged within the caves of the gorge) . The area 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/Axbridge 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.
We offer continuity of care for our patients whilst ensuring protected time for GP administration, CPD, MDTs and team interactions.
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. We are a supportive team that looks constantly to how we can improve, develop and grow. We focus heavily on resilience and encourage portfolio working and working flexibly. This is a chance for a like-minded individual to join us in making our excellent service available to the wider community in Axbridge and Wedmore and the surrounding rural area, while only being 15 miles from the vibrant city of Bristol with its irrepressible creative spirit, and of course the world famous balloon festival.
