Current Vacancies

Salaried GP (or partner)

An exciting opportunity to join a friendly, patient-focused practice Partnership in Somerset, located within easy reach of Taunton, Bristol and the beautiful Somerset coast.

The practice is multi-disciplinary, dynamic and innovative. Our focus is patient-centred care with lots of engagement with local community. We really enjoy our work, develop new services regularly, and are involved in training across different professions. We like to ensure our work is sustainable by supporting each other and looking after the health and wellbeing of practice team members. Portfolio careers are actively encouraged and there are potential future partnership opportunities available too.

We have abandoned 'duty doctor' sessions in favour of mutual support. We have lots of expertise within the practice and you will be encouraged and supported in your own areas of special interest.  We have a strong focus on training and development, and we equip our team with the skills and knowledge to be successful.  We are currently looking at new models of working to future proof the practice and manage the changing demands on General Practice. You would play a key role in these decisions and the future shape of the practice.

Social prescribing underpins our work and this is supported by our in-house Health & Wellbeing Coach as well as our Village Agent. We have established a number of patient groups including an active PPG, Walking Group and Gardening Group at the practice.

This is a golden opportunity for both newly qualified GPs or experienced GPs to come and join a forward-looking, dynamic, multi-disciplinary team.
