Salaried General Practitioner (GP) Opportunities - Bridgwater

The Role

We are seeking to appoint innovative General Practitioners across four sites within the Taunton and Somerset Partnership and Somerset Partnership Alliance’s primary care service.

This is a rare opportunity to work at scale within an NHS organisation that is responsible Primary, Acute and Community Care, across the county.
