Are you a GP who wants to make a difference, but still values work-life balance? This could be the place for you! We're looking for salaried GPs to join us at Riverside Medical Practice in East Lothian, up to a total of 12 sessions - we're flexible about whether this is two, three or more GPs. We're located close to both Edinburgh City Centre and East Lothian's fabulous beaches.
We're not a Deep End Practice but we're a busy surgery (list size 20,000) located in an area with significant health inequality - so we're looking for GPs who are really passionate about working in this type of environment and who really want to make a difference.
Please contact Helen on 0131 446 4060 or firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an informal visit and chat with one of our GP partners. Paid locum sessions are available if you want to check fit.
This is an exciting time to join our stable, 40-strong team: four new GPs have started with us already this year, along with three Nurse Practitioners from NHS 24 who are developing in-house telephone triage, to help us manage calls and make sure you see the patients who really need to see a GP. Be part of the team as we enter this period of transformation, in order to offer the best care we possibly can to all. GP workload is carefully managed, with 21 x 15 minute appointments a day. Duty doctor days are always supported by another 'flexi-doc' GP - with both 'duty' and 'flexi' being shared out equally between all GPs. Home visit days are supported by our specialist paramedic. You'll have access to your own pre-bookable slots, to ensure you can follow up on patients where needed, with dedicated time set aside each day for your admin.
We also have a specialist paramedic, psychiatric nurse, two embedded local health board pharmacists, two chronic disease nurse specialists plus treatment room nursing, phlebotomists and close working relationships with local health board urgent care, mental health and MSK services. Our care home resident patients are looked after by a dedicated local health board team, with support from our care home lead GP. You can see our full team here.
The Practice is located in a purpose-built health centre with plentiful consulting rooms, kitchen, sun terrace and onsite parking. Four supportive GP partners, great call handling team and other usual operational support staff. This is a well-organised Practice with mature processes in place.
Your professional development is as important to us, as it is to you: as an accredited training Practice we have experienced GP trainers on our staff and both mentoring and regular clinical catch-ups with colleagues are very much part of our weekly life at Riverside. If you have special areas of interest you want to develop we're supportive of this, with opportunities to take on quality improvement projects with GP partner support.
We use Vision at Riverside, so we and our local health board partners can all work from the same patient record. Completely flexible on days around your needs (although Fridays always welcomed) and option to work from home on occasion as needed. Sessions can be spread across as many days as you like, to fit in with your life.
We look forward to hearing from you!
