Would you like to pick and choose shifts which fit around your lifestyle and other commitments?

We are actively seeking to increase our Self Employed GP workforce within Medvivo across BaNES, Swindon and Wiltshire.

If you’d like to expand your portfolio we have opportunities available at all bases across Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire including Bristol/Bath, Chippenham, Salisbury and Swindon.

About us:

Medvivo Group has been providing a range of health and urgent care services since 2004. Commissioned by the NHS, Medvivo’s core business involves the provision of Integrated Urgent Care services, incorporating NHS111 and out of hours care, in Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire.

Committed to achieving excellence in the delivery of person-centred care, Medvivo invests in people, resources and technology to continuously improve the quality of its services and organisational culture. This is testified by two consecutive outstanding ratings by the Care Quality Commission, certified by the TSA’s Quality Standards Framework, the industry and advisory body for technology enabled care (TEC) in the UK.

About the role:

Our GPs can work at any of our bases and across all services. The role includes, telephone triage, seeing patients face to face and responding to requests for home visits to patients who are unable to attend one of our bases. Medvivo operates an appointment only system which is managed centrally by our dedicated team of Coordinators.

What we offer:

  • Highly competitive sessional rates
  • A supportive and open working environment
  • Sessional contracts: our GPs work with us on a sessional basis, effectively meaning they are self-employed. This has the enormous benefit of being able to pick and choose which shifts fit in with your lifestyle and other commitments
  • Paid orientation programme for new recruits
  • Each base has a fully stocked car and a driver in order to complete home visits
  • We use SystmOne: working OOH requires very little additional technical knowledge to working in practice
  • GP Audit: useful evidence for annual appraisals and PDPs
  • A variety of shifts: base, mobile, telephone triage
