GP Partner (4-6 sessions, negotiable) – Brent Area Medical Centre

Due to the relocation of one of our existing GP Partners, a unique opportunity now exists to become part of our rural dispensing practice on a part time basis, Monday to Friday. The Partners are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated, and proactive GP Partner to complement our small, friendly team of clinicians.

We are based in the village of East Brent, 5 minutes from Junction 22 of the M5 and only 10 minutes from the coast.

We are above all looking for someone who is a good fit for our team and will find it easy to fit in with our shared philosophy with the existing partner. Experience and number of years is not essential as we value personal qualities and potential highly. We are seeking a well-rounded clinician with excellent clinical skills.

We would be happy to encourage the new partners development into additional areas should they have a particular preference. We will fully support integration into a dispensing practice, should the right candidate not have the relevant experience in this area.
