Our newly formed Employee Owned Trust is looking to recruit a salaried GP. We are a practice of around 13000 patients and have recently moved from a partnership to an Employee Owned Trust in order to capitalise on involving our entire team in the future of our business. We have embraced multi-disciplinary working for a long time and our new venture allows us to offer a greater range of leadership opportunities to all staff.
We have a strong track record of developing clinicians including medical students, Physician’s assistants, Paramedic’s, Nurse Practitioner’s, as well as Foundation Year doctors and Medical, registrars. We have supported/mentored clinicians through prescribing courses, and Contraceptive services updates and have processes in place to ensure that all staff work within their skill set whilst working at the top of their game.
There is a dedicated supervising GP – open door doctor to help with any enquiries from any clinical staff during the daily consultations. We promote a safe working day and manage workload accordingly. We work as one clinical team to manage the daily workload and avoid working in silo’s.
Minehead is a small seaside town with a population just under 12,000. It is known as the Gateway to Exmoor and attracts a significant number of tourists, particularly to Butlins. Our nearest hospital, Musgrove Park, is 25 miles away which does mean that our team (which includes paramedics) have to keep their pre-hospital care skills up to date. This makes for an occasionally challenging but rewarding working day.
Minehead is within easy commuter distance of many of the small, picturesque villages to the north of Taunton and there are plenty of excellent rural pubs in the surrounding area. West Somerset is popular for having easy access to the South-West coastal path and having some excellent cycling routes both on and off road.
Good salary – we recognise hours worked rather than paying just 2 sessions per day
Medical indemnity paid
Generous annual leave entitlement plus study leave
Funded relocation scheme available with eligibility criteria
