Due to the nature of the post the majority of working time will be “out of hours” i.e. 6pm-8am Monday to Thursday and 6pm Friday to 8am Monday. and some Public/Bank Holidays.
However, due to operational requirements there will be times when other day time rostered shifts will need to be covered (eg protected learning time). The contracted hours are worked in accordance with the out of hours roster on an annualised hours arrangement – contracted hours are therefore represent an average commitment, but the salaried GP will receive a stable monthly salary.

We are seeking to appoint to various part time posts, all of which will allow for flexibility in working hours. Consideration will be given to applications from those who wish to consider fixed term working, job share or flexible working arrangements.
The postholder will be expected to support clinical colleagues, including medical and nursing staff during their hours of work.
