Full- or Part-Time Salaried GP with a view to Partnership
Retford, North Nottinghamshire

Tired of overloaded duty days, poor continuity, lack of involvement in practice decisions and absolutely no work-life balance? Then consider working for a happy, dynamic practice looking for a salaried GP with a view to partnership.

We are situated in Retford, an attractive market-town with great travel connections in North Nottinghamshire.

We have 8 GP partners, working 6 – 7 sessions, seeing 55 to 80 patients on a weekly basis. Our working week enables excellent work-life-balance and, if desired, the ability to develop a portfolio career. Duty days consist of a routine morning session, with an easily manageable list of on-the-day patients in the afternoon. Due to our demand management systems, over the past three months, on average, 5 face to face patients seen per afternoon duty session.

We have a usual-doctor system where patients obtain continuity from their named GP, reducing chaotic follow-up and fostering improved disease management. On average, 62% of patients seen by GPs are from their own usual-doctor list.

We pride ourselves on our equality and evolving our systems. All GPs are involved in practice management decision making; with weekly practice meetings (including all partners, nurse manager, practice manager and clinical pharmacist) and a scheduled weekly educational session. We are a happy team, with all GPs meeting for a daily coffee after morning surgery.
