Central Scotland awaits........
Join a team of motivated Salaried GPs working in one of NHS Forth Valley's GP practices to support and maintain access to primary medical services.
Two out of three of our practices operate a new model of care where salaried general practitioners work as part of a multi disciplinary team. The team comprises experienced Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) who triage, see patients and can prescribe. The team also comprises Primary Care Mental Health Nurses and Extended Scope Practitioners (Physiotherapists). This arrangement reduces delays and helps ensure patients have direct access to the specialist support and advice they require to meet their full healthcare needs. An in house team of pharmacists undertake various prescribing and medication review roles supporting the improvement of patient safety. These clinicians complement the salaried GPs freeing up capacity for patients who need to see a doctor.
As a salaried GP in these practices you will have 15 minute appointments over a 2 to 2.5 hour surgery twice daily. Full-time is 40 hours spread over 8 sessions (1 session = 5hrs) from 8.00am to 6.00pm. We can be flexible with full-time and part-time working arrangements.
This is an excellent opportunity for enthusiastic individuals committed to delivering high quality primary medical services comprising essential, additional and enhanced services. For those with an interest in being involved in promoting and further developing the concept of sustainable practices, as the changing primary care face of the future the posts provide the opportunity to be involved with an evolving model of care that offers real scope for innovation. As part of the core team the successful candidates would have the opportunity to participate in development activity and innovative projects within the practice.
Excellent, communication, listening and organisational skills are essential as is registration with the GMC with a licence to practice as a GP
