We have an exciting and rare opportunity to join the Arch Health CIC team based in central Brighton.
Arch Health CIC exists to deliver excellent healthcare for people who are experiencing homelessness in Brighton & Hove, contribute to improving the quality of homeless healthcare in our locality and influence the quality of homeless healthcare across the UK. Since 2017 we have been delivering high quality specialist clinical care to people in housing crisis with the service being rated outstanding in all 5 areas of a CQC inspection in January 2019.
Arch are looking for a part-time Salaried GP (range of sessions on offer from 4-8) to join an established, multi-disciplinary clinical team caring exclusively for people facing homelessness.
Arch Healthcare is a special kind of GP surgery which actively seeks out opportunities to support the most vulnerable people in the city. The environment is warm, welcoming and supportive to staff and patients alike. We have 1500 registered patients, many of whom are known to staff by their first name.
Our patients are largely people currently experiencing homelessness. This includes people sleeping on the streets, living in emergency or supported accommodation or sofa surfing. We also care for people who have recently experienced homelessness as well as members of the travelling communities. Many of our patients have a combination of physical, mental or substance misuse conditions and thus require specialist primary care and attention which we endeavour to provide with every interaction.
The team comprises of GPs, ANPs, PNs, HCAs and a physio, supported by a truly outstanding administrative team. In addition to our specialist GP surgery, we provide in-reach services to the University Hospital Sussex, outreach to the community, and clinical cover for new projects such as specialist step-down care. We are a committed and experienced team with a deep passion for improving the health of the poorest fastest.
The successful applicant will be a GP who shares our vision and values, combining excellent clinical skills with a genuine passion for meeting the needs of patients who are at very difficult points in their lives.
This role will initially consist mainly of clinical sessions within the surgery but will also involve contribution to the wider activity, clinical workflow and support to Arch’s broader services such as Outreach and the hospital In-reach team.
“A surgery like no other. At Arch you can build meaningful relationships with patients and support them through challenges from beginning to end. Yes it’s tough, but it’s one of the most rewarding roles I’ve ever undertaken, plus you get to work with an amazing team.” Dr Tal Lewin
