Federation GP opportunity

Join this leading General Practice alliance as a member of their federation in Sunderland, North East England.   You will be joining an established and stable training practice with 3 GPs, Mental Health Practitioner, Advanced Paramedic and a team of ANPs and support staff including a social worker as your colleagues.

The Role

Ideally we seek a GP to cover 6 clinical sessions per week and encourage applications from doctors wishing to explore and expand on their chosen areas of special interest.

The practice is registered to sponsor those who require a work permit and invite invitations from experienced family doctors who want to be part of this ground breaking team, no matter where you are currently based on the basis that the GMC consider your training comparable and you are prepared to take necessary steps to gain registration with a license to practice in the UK.  We will offer support where needed to assist with gaining registration to the GP register.

The location

Sunderland is a port city on the mouth of the River Wear, 12 miles north-east of Durham and 10 miles south-east of Newcastle upon Tyne.

There are real bonuses when you live in a coastal city. You may spend your days strolling through bustling streets and your evenings watching the sunset over the pristine sands of the beach.

If you enjoy a mix of City life and the great outdoors then Sunderland is well worth considering, it is studded with magnificent parks such as Herrington Country, Hetton Lyons and Roker Park and offers a good range of access to water sports and areas of natural beauty.  The area offers affordable house prices for purchase or rental and considerations such as fuel, car and house insurance as well as food prices, are more reasonable here than most other locations in the UK.
