We are recruiting for a salaried GP at the Bush Doctors site of Hammersmith and Fulham Partnership. The Bush Doctors has an established team of 5 partners and we are looking to build on our existing team of 3 salaried GP’s to deliver excellent care to our practice population in Shepherd's Bush. We have a practice population of 12,000 patients and the work is interesting and hugely rewarding.
We believe in a supportive environment and close teamwork, with excellent informal communication and weekly clinical meetings. We are flexible on session times and allocate time for administration. We have worked hard to reduce traditional GP bureaucracy. Our in-house pharmacy team manage our prescribing and most of QOF chronic disease management. We have a workflow team to manage and code documents/correspondence. We have a practice secretary to help manage all our referrals. We have a partnership quality and contracts team to help ensure GPs focus their time on the clinically important areas.
We encourage GPs to have/develop areas of specialist clinical interests for example in frailty, paediatrics, diabetes, or mental health. In addition, lots of GPs are involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, are part of our partnership research team (which does more primary care research than any other PCN in London) and others are involved in local borough and ICS clinical leadership. We support GPs undertaking SPIN fellowships. We have a full clinical team including nursing and healthcare assistants, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, link workers/social prescribers, counsellors, and health coaches as part of our team.
The Bush Doctors is part of the HFP PCN which is made up of 5 local sites in the centre of Hammersmith & Fulham, totalling 70,000 patients. The surgeries, Park Medical Centre, North End Medical Centre, Brook Green Medical Centre, The Bush Doctors, and Richford Gate Medical Practice run individual lists with cross site working in areas such as 'patches' for online consultations. We have a central management team. Our structure increases resilience and means we have the breadth and scale to respond and adapt to change promptly and effectively. We have worked with our local GP and hospital colleagues to set up 'faculty' working in key clinical areas with the most complexity. There is a strong culture of learning and development, and all sites are training practices. In addition, several of the partners are involved in wider healthcare roles locally. We have an active education programme with all clinicians invited to attend a quarterly half day session based around our faculties. We also have an active social programme with subsidised partnership based 5 aside football, bouldering, summer rounders, choir and biannual parties. The partnership sites had CQC inspections last year and achieved good overall with outstanding for leadership for all 5 sites. We are strong believers in career development and the GP partnership model – in the last 5 years we have recruited 13 new GP partners – 10 from within our salaried workforce, many of whom started their training with us.
You may be a new GP looking for a salaried role in a supportive environment or an established GP ready to step up to more responsibilities potentially with a view to partnership. Time commitment is a minimum of 2 days per week but beyond that it’s about you, what you bring, and your values. The annual salary is £10,450 per session and there is a golden hello payment of £1,000 per session at 6 months and a further retention payment of £1,000 per session at 18 months.
