Would you like the opportunity to join our wonderful team, work in a beautiful building set in lovely gardens in Cotham, Bristol with a friendly team and on site parking?

The Family Practice is looking to appoint a 4-6 session GP from September 2023 to August 2024 (with a view to permanent employment) to join our great team. These 4-6 sessions will ideally be on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday although other availability will be considered.

Our templates include 25 contacts/day with 15 min appointments. You will be part of a large GP team with many ARRS roles to support you. We always have 2 GPs assigned to duty each day and we also have a workflow team who reduce your unnecessary workload. As an established training practice you will have the opportunity to be involved in teaching medical students and the next generation of GPs. Continuous shared learning is offered in the form of Education meetings throughout the year and all our GPs are assigned a Partner mentor.

As a team, we meet up at lunch time everyday for a chance to relax, chat and discuss cases, concerns and share learning. There is a practice and PCN social running group and we have a Wellbeing group to support the whole team. The practice is part of Healthwest PCN (over 70,000 patients) which is a highly collaborative group and regularly hosts events for the teams.

To give you a flavour of what it’s like to work with us here’s a couple of quotes from our GP associates and GP trainees:

Associate GP – ‘The team is so lovely and supportive; it always feels like we’re in it together and learning from each other’.

GP trainee – I just wanted to thank you for being a wonderful team and making my last 6 months so enjoyable and such a good learning experience

Informal visits are welcome – we’ll be happy to show you around and introduce you to the team.
