Salaried GP/GP Partner required - Sessions negotiable
If you’re looking for a change of scenery, it doesn’t get any better than this!
We currently have a fantastic opportunity available for a GP to join our great team at the Upper Eden Medical Practice in Kirkby Stephen.
Surrounded by spectacular scenery, the ancient market town of Kirkby Stephen in the Upper Eden Valley is an inviting prospect for anyone aspiring to be at the heart of one of the biggest outdoor playgrounds in England! We have excellent schools and a great 6th Form, making it an ideal location if you have a family. Kirkby Stephen also has the added benefit of being only 10 minutes from the M6 and West Coast mainline railway, so you can reach the likes of Manchester and Newcastle with ease!
We're looking for an enthusiastic, ambitious and self-motivated GP to join our friendly team. We have a genuine, family orientated approach to our patients and we pride ourselves on delivering an exceptional quality of care. We all enjoy the rewards and recognition that comes from really knowing our patients and you could be a part of our ongoing success story! We encourage special interests and we will always support you to ensure that you maintain professional stimulus as well as your own personal development. We’re also a training practice, and we’re keen to encourage new GP’s to embrace and promote our high standard of patient care.
If you'd like to work in an established practice, rated 'Good' by the CQC, with a dedicated team of GP partners and a great support team, then we’d love to hear from you!
But please don't take our word for it. Here are some accounts of Doctors' experiences of the practice:
I joined the Upper Eden Practice for a short term contract in early 2019. I had been previously working in rural Scotland for a number of years so was a bit apprehensive about working back in a busy English practice. I needn’t have worried!! The practice is wonderful! The GP’s are very friendly with a mass of varied experience between them. The nursing, reception, secretarial, management and pharmacy teams are just lovely. So supportive and happy to help with any queries (which I had a great deal of working with a new prescribing system and never having used EMIS web before!).
The patients were so welcoming and having 15 minute appointments meant I felt I could really get to know them and provide a good service to them.
This is a job where you can really enjoy being a GP, in a stunning setting with friendly and resilient patients and great colleagues. If I was staying in England I’d be staying here!!
- Dr Sarah Elliott, MBChB (Salaried GP)
Since retiring from a local rural practice I have been a very regular locum at Kirkby Stephen for the last 7 years. The practice is a wonderful example of family medicine with a wholly excellent team of doctors and staff. The patients are resilient and the area is a joy to work and live in. Their reputation is fully deserved and I can thoroughly recommend them.
