We are looking for a new salaried GP to join us on Thursday and Fridays from January. Ideally you will enjoy working as part of a team, be adaptable and flexible about working in different ways that will support and improve the health of our community. Shepperton has a lovely village atmosphere and it’s residents are very supportive of the practice. You will be working with the clinical team made up of 7 GP Partners, 4 Salaried GP’s, 2 Registrars, 2 Pharmacists, 2 Nurses and 5 HCA’s.
We have 13,000 patients with a higher than average elderly population and are part of the Spelthorne Health Network PCN, working with Sunbury, Studholme and Upper Halliford Practices. We look after 2 care homes, undertaking weekly visits. Duty doctor is split into a morning or afternoon session and is done on a rota basis consummate with the number of sessions each GP does. We are a training practice, with 2 training GP’s. We have a weekly clinical/practice meeting, currently on a Wednesday via Microsoft Teams. Every quarter we endeavour to have an educational afternoon where the whole practice will get involved.
Covid has certainly sent us some challenges this year. In February we started putting plans together to keep everyone safe and also plans to convert to a hot-hub. This was thankfully not needed but as a result, rooms have been redesigned with infection control in mind. We are lucky enough to be able to send “Hot” Patients to the Ashford hub so presently only have 1 isolation room. We can easily ramp this up if needed. Patients are met at the door and temperature checked before entry and all clinicians wear scrubs. Alonside the governments PPE, we have visors, hair and feet protectors and onzies for use when a clinician feels it appropriate. Door handles, chairs and screens are regularly wiped.
It’s going to be a busy winter but we will get through it and we have a great team here. If you are interested in applying please call the Practice Manager, Caroline Self or apply here: https://www.jobs.nhs.uk/
