Solent GP Surgery is a 17,000 patient surgery with 3 sites in Southampton; we endeavour to keep clinicians on one site with occasional cross cover.

Our Community Wellbeing Team which assists with our housebound patients is currently being expanded with a Proactive Clinical Lead, a Practice Nurse and a Healthcare Assistant.

We score highly on QOF and offer enhanced services such as minor surgery, joint injections and diabetic clinics. We are committed to helping our GPs fulfil their personal development plans with a generous study leave budget and opportunities to develop clinical and leadership skills.

We can offer:

  • The same level of indemnity cover as hospital doctors (Crown indemnity)

  • 15 minute appointments as standard

  • A fair equal share of day to day admin work with an emphasis on teamwork.

  • 4 - 8 sessions per week
