Salaried GP/Partner – 4 – 6 sessions – Axbridge & Wedmore Medical Practice

Salaried GP/Partner – 4 – 6 sessions

Somerset is attracting GPs from cities and other areas across the UK to make the most of what the county has to offer.

We are a friendly, welcoming GP Practice who passionately believe in the importance of strong primary care for our community.

Axbridge is a small town in Somerset near the southern edge of the Mendip Hills. Wedmore is a large village situated in the Somerset levels between the River Axe and the River Brue, often called the Isle of Wedmore. We are very close to Cheddar (which is more than its world famous cheese, still aged within the caves of the gorge) . The area offers an unrivalled quality of life while having great road links to Bristol, Exeter, Bath and London with Bristol international airport on our doorstep. If you are into fitness, outdoor pursuits, the Cheddar/Axbridge reservoir is a popular destination for water sports fans, birdwatchers, walkers and cyclists. Cyclists can also begin the Strawberry Line cycle ride in Cheddar heading north west towards the main line at Yatton. The local state schools are justly renowned.

We offer continuity of care for our patients whilst ensuring protected time for GP administration, CPD, MDTs and team interactions.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a dedicated and elite team. A high standard of patient care, with good patient access and continuity is our utmost priority, together with the work-life balance of our GPs and staff. We are a supportive team that looks constantly to how we can improve, develop and grow. We focus heavily on resilience and encourage portfolio working and working flexibly. This is a chance for a like-minded individual to join us in making our excellent service available to the wider community in Axbridge and Wedmore and the surrounding rural area, while only being 15 miles from the vibrant city of Bristol with its irrepressible creative spirit, and of course the world famous balloon festival.

You will become an integral part of our whole team and our aim is to support you to continue to be the GP that you wish to be.

Some facts:

  • 8,700 patients and growing
  • Daily catch ups over coffee
  • Semi rural and rural area
  • High QOF achievers
  • Good CQC rating
  • Electronic Prescribing
  • Funded relocation scheme available with eligibility criteria

We do things a little differently in Somerset: we have an active and supportive LMC and you will be welcomed into a well-supported learning environment where professional development is actively encouraged: the Somerset GP Educational Trust can meet all your educational needs.

Forget the chaos and breathe the clean air!

Why not come and have a chat over a coffee and an informal look around. We would be very happy to discuss matters either as a Salaried GP or as a GP Partner.
