Betts Avenue: 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 which includes 2 ANPs, HCAs and an 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 a salaried GP to join our practice for up to 8 sessions a week to be delivered over both of our sites. The position has the potential to progress to Partnership longer term.


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 Dr Despina Gkisaki (GP Partner) at Despina.gkisaki@nhs.net
