It is a semi-rural Practice based in a Somerset market town with purpose-build premises and an in-house part-owned pharmacy. This particular role will be based primarily at one site but there will be a possibility you will be required to do some sessions at there sister site based just 0.2 miles away being a 3 minute walk or 2 minutes via car. This particular practice benefits from a high quota of nursing and support staff consisting of 2 nurse practitioners, 5 nurses, 1 ECP, 5 HCA's.

The two sites combined service a joint circa 11,000 patient list in the local community. The role available will allow for a GP looking to work full time Monday to Friday on a ongoing locum basis but also if you as a GP are just looking for a couple of regular days a week on a structured basis this can be accommodated also.

• To act as a clinical liaison providing feedback/information on practice patients who are being supported through EPC and the Complex Care teams while working closely with hospital consultants, community agencies and the voluntary sector to find new ways to support patients.
• To record clinical information in the GP practice computerised clinical software systems.

• To adhere to the professional standards as set out by the GMC.

We can offer shifts and Rota's 2 months in advance so please do apply if you are thinking of doing locums now or in the future.
We are able to wait for GP's who have a notice period that needs to be cohered too so please do still apply if you have a 3 month + notice on your current contract and are looking to work as a locum GP.
