Job Description

Should you require further information regarding this vacancy please contact the organisation direct.


We are a visionary, forward-thinking and progressive GP practice in the Lake District looking for GP maternity cover, commencing in February 2017 up to 12 months working 6 sessions per week.

We can help you achieve your ambitions, from clinical special interests to research, management, IT and medical politics. Or you may wish to focus on delivering core family practice. Our size means we are flexible, able to innovate and adapt whilst retaining a good team spirit and strong emphasis on quality and education. We are constantly seeking ways to improve the patient journey and maintain a supportive and motivating culture amongst our staff.

This is an excellent opportunity to join our team, perhaps to try somewhere different, on a temporary basis. If you enjoy walking, climbing, and beautiful scenery then this position could be tailor made for you! Allerdale was recently ranked top in Britain as the happiest, most affordable area to live and the ancient market town of Cockermouth is a jewel in its crown.
