Are you frustrated that you can’t find a job that fits your lifestyle or family commitments?
We have a vacancy for a GP at The Park Surgery in Littlehampton, a seaside town just over an hour from London with a mixed population.

We’ve cracked it!  General Practice can be fun! We have a long history of innovation and adaptation and have successfully split our workload into “on the day demand” which our fantastic Paramedic/Physician Associate triage team manage, and the complex patients which the GPs manage. Our triage team also manage the majority of our home visits, leaving the GPs to manage the things that they are best qualified to do and we are keen to be able to facilitate any particular interests you may have.   We also have a Lead Care Home & Frailty Nurse that manages our aligned care Homes.  We are sure that we can offer a position to suit your requirements. Salaried GP (with view to Partnership if wanted) for up to 8 sessions, part time, job sharing  and flexible working can be accommodated.

In our partnership are Doctors and Managing Partners looking after 11,075 patients and are working ever more closely with our neighbouring practices.  Our partners have long associations with high level CCG and recently PCN work, and the LMC; we are well connected.

We are historically high earners.

If you would like to join our progressive team, we would be happy to hear from you.
