Medical Practice Vacancy, Edinburgh

Medical Practice Edinburgh Picture

An exciting and rare opportunity to develop and improve services for 8,532 patients in South Edinburgh has arisen due to a desire to return a directly managed practice to an independent contractor. The vacancy would suit those who want to lead a primary care team as it develops new ways of working and grows its patient list; at the same time as continuing to provide and improve traditional Primary Care services. 

Currently the practice operates from purpose built, high quality, Health board owned premises in the Gracemount area of the city that will be available to the new service provider.

Gracemount is a growing suburb with both a large established population as well as new residents attracted to the many new homes in the area. We are looking for a team to work in partnership with the Health Board particularly as we develop the national PCIP demonstrator site work programme which Gracemount is a crucial component of.

For informal enquiries please contact Dr Jeremy Chowings, Deputy Medical Director Primary Care NHS Lothian: 

Applicants should meet the criteria to be eligible to provide General Medical Services in Scotland.

Further details are available on the Public Contracts Scotland website 

Applicants should register as a supplier by clicking the apply button

and applications should be lodged electronically by noon on Wednesday 22 May 2024.



NHS Lothian is the second largest health board in Scotland serving the fastest growing population. We cover four local authority areas, including the city of Edinburgh. As one of the largest healthcare organisations in the UK, we invest approximately £1.6 billion a year in protecting and improving the health and wellbeing of our communities. Our permanent workforce of over 28,000 delivers a comprehensive range of primary, community-based and acute hospital services to a population of over 850,000 people. We have 21 hospitals, 119 GP practices, 182 community pharmacies, 173 general dental practices and 127 optometry practices. As a regional centre, we also provide some services for patients in neighbouring areas and we are a national centre of expertise for other specialties, serving people across Scotland.
We have recently invested in a brand-new children’s hospital, the Royal Hospital for Children & Young People, and a new state of the art Department for Clinical Neurosciences. Now is also an exciting time to join our ophthalmology and oncology teams as we embark on plans to invest significant capital into building leading treatment and research centres.
