Cruddas Park Surgery: Salaried GP – Special Interests Encouraged

Interested in playing your part to help reduce health inequalities? Keen to make a difference at the "deep end" of general practice? Then this could be the job for you ……


Cruddas Park Surgery is a thriving dual site surgery based in the West End of Newcastle and we are looking for a Salaried GP to add to our existing team.


We offer a generous salary, BMA model contract and a fully paid weekly session of CPD for those who work 6 clinical sessions a week or more. We are well staffed (6FTE GPs) and have an expanding nursing and pharmacy team to help complement our GPs and manage our workload. We are aiming to become more "green" and we are currently acquiring an electric car to enable us to visit patients whilst leaving our car at home.


It is an exciting time to join our surgery. We have recently recruited two new partners and we are due to finish building our well-being centre in the coming months. This will be an extension to our current premises with the aim of the centre becoming a vibrant community and teaching hub for the benefit of our patients and the wider area as a whole.


Life is hard for many of our patients and sadly is getting harder. We are looking for someone who understands this and is passionate about tackling health inequalities to help our patients access equitable and high-quality primary care.


We encourage our GPs to develop a special interest. Currently we have opportunities to be involved in medical student teaching, a nursing home ward round and potentially a new innovative scheme to help expand our primary care offering to our homeless population – any other ideas or interests would be considered and welcomed!


Progression to partnership would be encouraged should it be desired, but it is not a requisite for the role.


Informal enquires prior to application are encouraged, please email: j.mcgonigle@nhs.net
