Salaried GP, Better Health MCR, The Robert Darbishire Practice, Manchester

This is a brilliant opportunity to join Better Health MCR, a leading and unique Primary Care Network. Ideally, we are looking for an experienced salaried GP to join our team at The Robert Darbishire Practice, although for the right person we would consider a newly qualified GP. We are a Tier Two Sponsor.

We welcome those with an interest in training / teaching, Forensics, Student Health or addiction services. Opportunities are available for those with experience or those considering a branch out from the usual GP role.

We are on a mission to think differently so provide imaginatively tailored care that meets the diverse needs of our patients, breaks down the barriers that sustain health inequalities and, ultimately, improves the lives of local people. We can only do this by encouraging all our staff to be curious and caring about what we do and how we do it; and to challenge and suggest different forms of service delivery. Outcomes thus far include the development of some innovative services, such as a RECOVERY service dealing with addiction; a Wellbeing service dealing with non-medical issues; and a Frequent Attender Service dealing with patients who have become dependent on their GP.

Health inequalities and quality improvement are high on our agenda and have a dedicated personnel to support both work streams.

We work hard to meet the needs of our patients using a digital platform for all contacts. Our appointment system ensures we get the patient to the person best suited to meet their needs, whether a GP, Allied Healthcare Professional or our Wellbeing Team. Continuity is an essential part of our approach: thus our GPs and ANPs are allocated a patient list that helps to improve safety, quality and clinical experience.

Our comprehensive back–office systems further support patients’ care and our clinical team.

We aim to provide you with a good work/life balance, so we put you in charge of your day. You decide how and when to consult your patients: this may include remote / flexible working.

You will have responsibility for your own patients, backed up by our onsite team of allied professionals. These include: HCAs; Practice Nurses; Minor Illness Nurses; Advanced Nurse Practitioners; Pharmacists and Pharmacy Technician, Physiotherapists and Mental Health Practitioners. We work closely together and meet daily, virtually, to discuss pressing patient concerns and to share the responsibility of those with complex and sometimes chaotic needs. In addition, our Wellbeing team comprises Social Prescribers, Care navigators, Care coordinators and Health and Wellbeing Coaches. All members of staff are salaried.
