Salaried GP - GP Fellowship Scheme

Job Description

Welcome to ABM University Health Board. We welcome applications from people who share our values: caring for each other, working together and always improving.

Croeso i Fwrdd Iechyd Prifysgol ABM. Rydym yn croesawu ceisiadau gan bobl sy’n rhannu ein gwerthoedd: gofalu am ein gilydd, cydweithio a gwella drwy’r amser.

ABM University Health Board reserve the right to close this vacancy after 24 hours if a large number of suitable applications are received. Therefore we encourage early applications to ensure consideration for this post.

Prior consideration for this vacancy will be given to staff currently awaiting redeployment and we therefore reserve the right to withdraw this advert at any stage.

Are you a committed, enthusiastic GP interested in a secure, well paid and stimulating post, but not quite ready for that partnership role?

Do you want to spend a period of time gaining experience and confidence, to feel you are genuinely respected as an essential member of the wider team before committing long term?

Are you particular about wanting to balance family and personal life and other interests with hard work?

Then becoming part of our innovative GP Fellowship Scheme will give you the opportunity to do all these; working flexible sessions in General Practice, experiencing different models of care while gaining invaluable skills and confidence.

The GP Fellowship has been established by the Neath Port Talbot GP Cluster networks (part of ABMU Health Board) and is open to GPs seeking salaried employment. ABMU Health Board is offering flexible part time or full time employment with an attractive salary depending on experience with access to a wide range of benefits including relocation allowance, and considerable additional financial incentives for those willing to commit for a year or two.

We are hoping to appoint 7 or more GPs, who will each work regular sessions in a local GP practice (or practices) receiving independent mentoring, guidance and support from named GP partners, ABMU Health Board managers and established salaried GPs within the cluster.

Appointees will have the opportunity to develop a portfolio career gaining exposure across differing models of Primary care and if desired, developing an area of specialist interest. It is hoped many of those who join this fellowship as they settle in the cluster, will soon decide to stay permanently within the practice they were placed as salaried employees or often partners.

Applicants must be fully registered with the GMC and hold a License to Practice. Applicants must also be on the GMC GP Register and have gained entry on the Welsh GP Performers List before taking up their post.

If you are looking for an exciting role within a motivated and evolving cluster network, and if you are interested in progressing your career and having every opportunity to personally influence the development of innovative models of primary healthcare in this part of South Wales then we would be delighted to hear from you. We need you!

If you would like to find out more about the scheme we are holding an open day on Saturday 29th of October between 1100am and 300pm. We would be delighted to see you there. For further information please email ( Email address removed ).
