Fellowship GP Vacancy
We have an exciting opportunity for fellowship at West Road Medical Centre. This fellowship is open to any GP within
their first 12 months after gaining their CCT. The GP Fellow will benefit from the experience of other GP Fellows who
worked with us on interesting projects (working with homeless patients, mental health and women's health) and who
are now embedded in our supportive team.
The successful applicant will have one session per week paid protected time (pro rata) for the fellowship. We are keen
to co-design this based on interest area and population need. Examples of areas of focus might be better meeting the
needs of young people within general practice, working with frail housebound elderly and/ or care home
patients; diabetes management - possibly to focus on the differing needs within our population taking into account
wider determinants; making care more in tune, integrated and accessible for patients where ethnicity and other
cultural traditions might be health determinants, specifically Pakistani Bengali and Muslim traditions. These
suggestions are illustrative, we would welcome other ideas.
There is opportunity to contribute and lead on areas of service design and clinical pathways. We will link the Fellow
with peer group support and mentoring programmes and offer a GP mentor for professional development.
We are engaged members of an active PCN and collaborate widely with other parts of the local system. We would
hope that the Fellow would be able to make use of networking and collaboration opportunities to learn more about
their chosen field and drive their work forward.
We have built a supportive structure around the GPs in the team that includes Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Social
Prescribers, Pharmacy Technician, Health and Wellbeing Coach, Practice Nurses, Health Care Apprentices, Care
Coordinators and administrators. We have excellent links with the voluntary sector and we have link workers for
children and young people's mental health, patients with learning disabilities, adult mental health and those with long
term conditions. The practice boundary includes areas with high levels of health inequalities and health need and
provides opportunity for primary care to have a high impact which makes a very rewarding environment for our team
We are supportive employers who want to see staff develop interest areas and grow their careers whilst promoting
work life balance. If you would like to know more please arrange to speak to one of us by emailing email@example.com
for the attention of the practice manager. You can also visit our website www.westroadmedicalcentre.co.uk. The
practice is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community where everyone can succeed on merit. We
offer a supportive environment, an ethos of staff engagement, and inclusive policies.
