GPs at the Deep End North East North Cumbria

Bridge View Medical Group – Salaried GP

Salaried GP Vacancy                                               

Bridge View Medical Group have a fantastic opportunity for a salaried GP to join our dynamic, modern, and forward-thinking team.

We are a 15,000 single site practice, based in a purpose-built health centre, in Southwick, Sunderland. There are excellent transport links, meaning it is easily commutable from Gateshead, Newcastle, or Durham areas. Through our local federation we can also offer this vacancy to those requiring Tier 2 Sponsorship.

Teaching and training are at the very heart of the practice. We train all levels of staff in the practice including administrative apprentices, nurses, medical students, foundation doctors and GP Registrars. We also offer coil/implant fittings, joint injection clinics, and are research active with RCGP Research Ready and NIHR accreditation.

We have a dedicated data team who code and file most of our documents (we only see the ones that need actions, typically less than 5 per day) and we have a GP Assistant Trainee nearing the end of her training who helps completing various medical reports. Additionally, we have an in-house prescribing pharmacist (in addition to those from the PCN) who manages all the medicine queries, so we don’t have to. Our practice nursing team are highly skilled and comprise prescribers; they manage all their own blood results, medicine changes/titrations, and prescriptions thereby reducing the need to involve the GPs. We also have a dedicated frailty team comprising an NP, ANP, and GP who look after our care home residents and our frailest housebound patients. All of these save our clinician’s valuable time meaning they can focus on their own work and achieve a better work/life balance.

We have daily catchups and regular clinical meetings to ensure we involve the full team. We also have regular educational meetings giving our clinicians time to discuss difficult cases and complete PDP.

Sessions and salary for this post are negotiable. We would be keen to support any special interests. If you have any questions or would like to have an informal discussion/visit, please contact our Business Manager, Wendy Page ([email protected] /0191 516 3942) or our Senior Partner, Dr Rory Mackinnon ([email protected]).
