Partnership Opportunitylogo

Portcullis Surgery is looking to replace Dr Nicholas Farnell who is retiring from the partnership at the end of July 2018. We are looking for a Full Time Partner (8 sessions) to join our team in Ludlow in beautiful South Shropshire, described as the loveliest town in England (John Betjeman). Part-time/Job share Partnership or Salaried Assistant may be considered. There are good to excellent schools in the area in both the state and private sectors. Housing is of good quality and affordable.

We have a list size of 8000 patients and provide excellent access and availability of appointments for our local population, with 3 Full time partners and 4 Part time assistants. In addition we have 4 excellent nurses including 1 Advanced Nurse Practitioner who assists with acute illness assessment and home visits. We are a Teaching and Training Practice, teaching medical students from Keele University throughout the year and training GP Registrars. Our team is very well structured and organised and we achieved GOOD in every area of our CQC inspection in 2015. We are high QOF achievers and have structured Chronic Disease Monitoring and Medication reviews, mostly run by our nurses. We have extended access surgeries on a Monday and Friday and some Saturday mornings. We also provide Medical Cover to our local Community Hospital with MIU, Xray, Physio and OT services and manage and treat patients in our 24 bedded ward.

We are keen to welcome a partner to the business who wants to have an input into how we develop and who can bring their own ideas and direction to our future. We feel that we are a very professional practice offering a relatively high income, great variety and a good work-life balance. We enjoy the multifaceted nature of our work but first and foremost want to remain a Family Medicine orientated practice where patients feel cared for and supported throughout their time with us. We have daily coffee meetings and feel we provide a supportive and caring environment for our clinical staff. We also run monthly education/dinner club meetings in Ludlow.

Our premises were extended and completely refurbished in 2015 which provides us with plenty of space and a wonderful working environment enjoyed by both staff and patients.

Call us for information – talk to patients and doctors who know us. Please come visit and meet us face to face or offer to locum to try us out. Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to shape your new life and career.
