Lead GP Oldham

Come and play a part in a brilliant story of bringing hope and seeing real change in the heart of Oldham

Are you a GP with a specialist interest area in diabetes, mental health, or women's health? Or are you interested in developing these skills in a supported environment?

Glodwick Medical Practice is an 11,000-patient practice run by Hope Citadel Healthcare. For the last 3 years it has been led as two separate practices by some of our most senior doctors and managers. However, with the good news that we have been awarded a long-term contract, we are officially merging and rebranding!

We are looking for a new team of salaried GPs to take the reins and build on the work that has already started. If you are motivated by providing healthcare for marginalised communities, and want a space to develop your own clinical skills or special interests, then we think you’ll fit in great with us. We want each of our GPs to focus on a clinical area, with protected time for quality improvement and focused clinics for the relevant patient group.

The base sessional rate is £10,250, with uplifts for skills in consulting in another language, and responsibilities in mentoring. We have additional wrap around support for GPs who are in their first 3 years post qualifying, and also fellowship opportunities for GPs who need some time and funding to support their personal development.

Our clinical sessions are 4.25 hours long, which includes 3 hours of clinical time and 1.25 hours of protected admin. Our appointments are 13 minutes long, and offer a mix of face to face and telephone appointments. We have weekly clinical meetings for all the clinical team, and monthly practice meetings followed by training. Our clinical team includes established practice nurses, two care home ANPs, HCAs and a nursing associate. We also work with a pharmacist, a Focused Care worker, and an in-house counsellor. We care about our staff, ensuring we are a Real Living Wage employer, and that we provide good annual leave and sick leave for all staff. This benefits the whole team – staff that are well looked after are also motivated and compassionate towards team members and patients, making everyone’s working day a bit easier.
