ARE YOU A DOCTOR WHO REALLY CARES ABOUT PEOPLE?
ARE YOU A DOCTOR WHO REALLY WANTS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
ARE YOU A DOCTOR WHO WANTS WORK TO HAVE MEANING AND SIGNIFICANCE?
ARE YOU A DOCTOR WHO WANTS TO BE PART OF A DEDICATED, VALUES-DRIVEN, CLOSE-KNIT PARTNERSHIP?
An opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and committed individual to join our dedicated team. Ashgrove is a long established training Practice based in Blackburn, West Lothian with a current complement of 4 partners. Located just a couple of minutes drive from the M8, there is swift, easy access to both Glasgow and Edinburgh.
In November 2017, Ashgrove Group Practice moved in to a new purpose built, health board owned building that we were actively involved in designing. This community facility will provide medical, dental, library, early years and sports facilities at the heart of the town.
We are developing plans for a new model of care to be implemented in the Practice, where the GPs will lead an enhanced team of healthcare professionals such as CPNs, Advanced Nurse Practitioners and Paramedics in delivering care to the population. This innovative approach is in line with the direction of travel for General Practice as a whole, whereby GPs become the “expert generalists” in the community and oversee and coordinate the work of the extended team.
