It’s 2017 – the start of a brand new year. Are you thinking of making some personal or professional changes?
New car? New hobby? Joining a gym?
What about a fresh start as a GP in large, dynamic and well respected GP practice?
We are located on the Hampshire/Surrey border and have one full time and one half-time GP retiring this Summer, both after over 25 years of loyal service. We therefore have opportunities for GPs to replace these important roles and can offer flexibility of sessions. We welcome applications for Salaried GP or GP Partnership positions.
Primary Care is changing - and general practice is an integral part of the future. Providing great patient care remains at the heart of everything we do at Fleet Medical Centre. We endeavour to increase the skill mix within our GP Practice and encourage a team-based approach. We share operational duties with a priority on allowing you to concentrate on supporting your patients and developing your clinical expertise. We believe in strong clinical and management leadership with a clear emphasis on teamwork and adaptability to ensure a happy working environment and good work-life balance.
We are looking for GPs to join our existing clinical team as either GP Partners or salaried positions and will consider recruiting up to three positions depending on the applications received. The positions are available from between June and September 2017 onwards with a negotiable start date. We offer the following to the successful applicant:
