Where You Matter
West End Family Health is looking for energetic, enthusiastic GPs to join our new enterprise.
We are a collaboration of four GP practices with voluntary sector partners working in the West End of Newcastle.
The Five Year Forward View requires general practice to change and this is what we are doing. We are building a ‘place based’ approach to care with partners from the NHS, social care, voluntary sector and the communities of our area. We are developing our enterprise to include two leading third sector health and social care providers and as a result there will be opportunities to support and gain experience across a wide range of initiatives, including:
- Elderly / frailty health care
- Mental health
- Long term condition management
- Complex care
There will be opportunities for teaching – both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
We are looking for GPs who are excited about developing our approach with us and who would be interested in combining core general practice with new approaches to place based or population health.
We want to attract GPs who want to help design our model for community orientated and person-centred care. The right applicant will have enthusiasm and the drive to work ideas up into practice. In return, we will offer you the opportunity to develop your own interest areas and to work with an open minded, supportive and dynamic team. We would like to hear from you about any areas of interest or experience that you already have.
For further information please contact Dr Lorna Longworth. Applications should be made via CV and covering letter by clicking the apply button.
Closing date for applications: 11th June 2017.
