Clinical Lead General Practitioner

Job Reference: J196-A-21-2045

Dorking Healthcare Limited
Pond Tail Surgery
Negotiable according to experience

An exciting highly remunerated permanent Clinical Lead GP role has arisen with the opportunity to be part of a Primary Care family within a well-established GP Federation. You will receive mentorship from experienced clinical directors and have the opportunity to pursue specialist interests as part of our wider portfolio of services.

The role is based at Pond Tail Surgery in Godstone, working with a small, friendly and professional practice team to lead and provide high quality services to the 7,000-patients. We believe that general practice can be a fun and supportive environment for GPs and we ensure this through highly developed systems and processes, and support from allied healthcare professionals, such as our pharmacists, first contact physiotherapists and paramedic practitioners.

The Clinical Lead GP will combine clinical work and have dedicated time to ensure the practice offers high quality patient care and takes responsibility for governance and development of the practice. The role will involve working with the Practice Manager and the team of Federation managers, who will take responsibility for the non-clinical aspects of the practice.

The Clinical Lead role is envisaged to have more clinical leadership responsibility than a traditional salaried GP role but without the non-clinical duties, personal risk and negative work/life balance associated with partnership. The role is developmental and will be regularly reviewed. We will work with the Clinical Lead to develop a package of developmental support and mentoring. The Clinical Lead GP will report to the DHC Medical Director and be expected to attend and represent the practice and DHC in locality and GP Federation meetings.

  • Performance based bonus
  • £10,000 Golden Handshake to stay for 2 years (25% paid every 6 months) to recognise that you will be helping to influence and develop the Surgery and the services offered to patients over the next few years
  • Full medical indemnity fees covered
  • 6 weeks annual leave, 1 week study leave, study budget
  • Dedicated GP Director led clinical mentoring and support
  • GP Trainer / F2 grant when training
