Jobs - Salaried GP

Parkbury House Surgery

Parkbury House Surgery are looking for a caring, hard-working and focused GP to join our practice on a permanent contract. You will work as part of a team of GPs and other clinical staff to support our patients and the practice through the constantly changing services we provide to patients.

Our perfect candidate would be as happy consulting with patients over the phone as they would be consulting in the practice face to face.

Principal Contract Terms:

  • Permanent contract to start as soon as possible
  • Sessions: between 4-8 per week
  • Salary: £10,700 per session
  • Annual leave entitlement: 6 weeks plus statutory, plus bank holidays (pro rata)
  • Indemnity covered for sessions worked
  • Parking on site
  • The successful candidate will be eligible to join the NHS pension scheme, with an employee and employer contribution

How We Work:

The practice uses the clinical cloud based system Emis Web and the document software Docman. These are the same systems and software that are currently used across the whole of the locality. We also use Ardens and AccuRx which integrate with Emis.

Additionally, there is a huge drive towards integrated care and working more closely with secondary care, community care and the third sector to improve patient care. This includes working more closely with other practices through our network.

We use a cloud based HR system, training system and document management system, as well as a cloud based telephone system. We are fully equipped for remote working, both for admin and clinical functions.

About The Practice:

St Albans is a small city in Hertfordshire with strong rail and road links to London and links to the north via the M1. Parkbury House Surgery is a busy training practice in the heart of St Albans, led by 8 GP Partners and the Practice Manager. We train registrars, medical students, student nurses and clinical pharmacists. We work across two sites; our main site in St Albans and our branch site in Sandridge. We are part of Alban Healthcare PCN and we are also part of STAHFED federation.

Our 21,000 patients are at the heart of everything we do. We listened to our patients when they told us they needed better and quicker access to a doctor and we were one of the first practices to move to a triage system in response to this need. We have a strong PPG who we rely on for advice and guidance. They were instrumental in starting a group of volunteer social prescribers at the practice and have begun building a therapy garden at our branch surgery.

We have a very mixed clinical team consisting of 9 Salaried GPs, practice nurses, HCAs, a visiting nurse team and clinical pharmacists. As a training practice there are always registrars, medical students and student nurses working alongside our clinical team. We have four care homes that we look after and have a dedicated team of nurses working with the support of a GP, HCA and clinical pharmacist who make regular visits to the homes and also to our housebound patients. We take pride in our practice and work hard to maintain our reputations as an innovative and successful practice. We also have a first contact physiotherapist, social prescriber and pharmacists employed through the PCN.

Our management team consists if a Business Manager, Assistant Practice Manager / Operations and Capacity Planning Manager, supported by two administrative teams covering front and back office functions.

We are a supportive and innovative practice and are a friendly and caring place to work.
