Betts Avenue Medical Centre: Salaried GP

About Betts Avenue


Betts Avenue is a long established GP Practice operating in the heart of Newcastle over two sites (Kenton and Benwell). We currently have 3 GP Partners, 1 salaried GP, supported by an established nursing team, HCAs and admin team delivering a range of services to a population of approximately 11,600 patients.


We promote and encourage the development of our staff and teach F2 Doctors, Year 5 Medical Students and Nursing Students. The practice is an active member of the Inner West Primary Care Network, NGPS Federation, LMC and CCG.


We like to ensure that our staff have a healthy work/home life balance. We appreciate that General Practice is a very busy place to work, we would therefore not expect a Salaried GP to take on the same responsibility as a GP Partner and we try to keep meetings and training within the working day. We all support each other where possible and work together as a team.


About the Role


In order to strengthen our team, we are looking for an additional salaried GP to join our practice for 5 sessions a week to be delivered over both of our sites. We would prefer 2 of the sessions to be on either a Tuesday or a Friday but we can offer flexibility with the other sessions.


The role will also include an element of home visits and you may be asked to cover extended hours on a pro rata basis.


In return we are offering a competitive salary (depending on experience) , indemnity paid (in addition to salary) and 6 weeks annual leave. We operate a standard BMA contract which includes CPD time.


If you are interested in joining our team then please submit your CV to Julie Ling (Practice Manager) in the first instance at Julie.ling1@nhs.net . If you would like further details or have any questions then please email Julie Ling or call 0191 246 1546.
