Salaried GP East Area

Job Reference: 050-SALARIEDGP-EAST--02

Betsi Cadwaladr University Local Health Board
Salaried GP
General Practices Flintshire or Wrexham, Wrexham & Flintshire

If you relish a challenge, have a passion to help others or simply fancy a fresh start, then Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) North Wales, has all the right ingredients. The largest health organisation in Wales, providing a full range of primary, community, mental health, acute and elective hospital services for a population of around 700,000, across North Wales . Join our team and get the support you need, in line with our Organisational Values and ‘Proud to Lead’ competence framework.

Enjoy being part of working with engaged leadership at all levels, and be assured we are committed to promoting equality and diversity, and are proud to welcome applicants under the “Disability Confident Employer” scheme. We also offer a number of family-friendly benefits, including childcare voucher schemes, work-life balance policies and on-site crèche facilities. Visit our web site

Please check your email account regularly. Successful applicants will receive all recruitment related correspondence via the email account registered on the application form.

Applications may be submitted in Welsh. Applications submitted in Welsh will not be treated less favourably than an application submitted in English.

We welcome applications from GPs at any stage of their career – a willingness to work in a co-productive way as part of a wider team is at least as important as years of experience as a qualified GP.

Whilst full time is 37.5 hours per week we welcome applicants interested in full-time, part-time, flexible or portfolio roles. Successful applicants will be contracted as Salaried GPs, on fixed term or permanent contracts. This way of working will therefore appeal to GPs at different stages in their career development - we aim to be flexible in matching your availability with our work patterns and the needs of the service.

GPs working for our salaried service have negligence indemnity included. CPD and study-leave allowance is favourable.

Job plans can be devised to include additional responsibilities (for example leadership roles, research, and teaching) and these may include protected time, or attract additional payment, negotiated as far as possible to meet personal preference.

An enthusiasm to proactively contribute to developing solutions for a sustainable and vibrant future NHS Primary Care service is essential.

As a minimum all applicants must be able to demonstrate that they are (or are eligible for inclusion) on the GMC specialist register for General Practice, and the Wales GP medical performers list. We will provide support to those applicants who are not yet on the Wales GP medical performers list.

Relocation fees are also available (within policy guidance) and we are more than happy to facilitate any informal visits to allow you to see where you could be working.
