Organisation Larwood Health Partnership
Location Worksop

Larwood Health Partnership has an exciting opportunity for a GP to join an “Outstanding” practice and develop new skills while being supported by an established team.

We have 32,000 patients over 5 sites in North Nottinghamshire. We focus on the needs of local people and have always provided opportunities for our GPs to develop specialist skills, (which may include financial support to undertake further education), including the potential to be involved in substance misuse, teaching, and intermediate care.

We have a strong record of innovation and have successfully implemented the AskmyGP system which has reduced GP workload and improved access for patients.

We have GP representation in commissioning and ACP at board level. As a practice we are able to influence the local NHS at district level and much wider.

We are rated Outstanding by CQC in 10 out of 11 domains, have been awarded the RCGP Quality Practice Award and are an Advanced Training Practice, providing training at all levels within primary care.

We are looking to recruit an additional GP, salaried initially with potential progression to partnership. We have a strong record of successful recruitment, with each new GP having a mentor and named secretary and the opportunity to develop roles. GPs are supported by an excellent team of experienced managers, nurses, and staff.

We have 3 aims: Staff Support, Better Patient Outcomes and Efficient Ways of Working. We want a GP with the same vision to help us provide excellent medical care but also develop their role with support.

We believe in General Practice and the importance of being part of a supportive team. Our team includes 3 practice pharmacists, 2 paramedics and nurse practitioners. We work in partnership with community nurses and the voluntary sector. We also provide protected learning time to attend local education sessions. The practice organises events for the next generation of GPs and you would be able to join us in these if you wish.

We would be happy to arrange informal visits or phone calls with one of our GPs.

A recent F2 doctor gave this feedback recently – despite difficult times for General Practice we continue to work in a supportive and innovative practice.

“Would you recommend this Practice as a training Practice?

Absolutely – This has been a lovely rotation, with excellent senior support and a lovely team of staff. I have felt well-supported and never out of place. Furthermore, I felt like I could approach anyone, and had several, invaluable open discussions with senior GPs about career choices and life as a GP. This has spurred me onward from sitting on the fence to pursue a career as a GP.”

Please see our website for details of how to apply or contact Sarah Dale, Practice Manager to organise an informal visit/chat on 01909 537191.

Closing Date for receipt of applications: 8th December 2017
