General Practitioner – Minehead Medical Centre

General Practitioner

The picturesque seaside town of Minehead has long been known as the Gateway to Exmoor. This idyllic location offers a plethora of opportunities for exploration, including Exmoor's stunning footpaths and cycling routes.

Our team thrives on the unique balance of managing acute medical and surgical conditions, ensuring our prehospital skills remain sharp and up-to-date.

At our practice, we have recently transitioned from a partnership model to an innovative employee-owned Trust—a pioneering step that sets us apart. This transformation empowers all our exceptional staff members to actively contribute to the development of our practice. Embrace the opportunity to assume leadership roles, make joint decisions, and shape the future alongside our passionate team.

We are seeking a dynamic GP with strong leadership skills, someone who enjoys mentoring and supporting our diverse team. Our team comprises dedicated professionals such as paramedics, pharmacists, and physiotherapists, who thrive on receiving the support they need. If you have an interest in becoming a GP Trainer or are already one, we are particularly keen to hear from you.

In addition to an attractive salary, we offer a competitive pay structure tailored to three sessions per day, aligning with our surgery's opening hours. Furthermore, we provide comprehensive medical indemnity coverage and generous allowances for annual and study leave. To facilitate a smooth transition, we also offer a funded relocation scheme, subject to eligibility criteria.

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and embrace the open air. Let birdsong serenade you as you navigate the tranquil paths of Exmoor. There may be moments when the urgency of a blue light is necessary; an important reminder of the vital role you will play in our community.
