An exciting opportunity has arisen for GPs, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, and Prescribing Paramedics at the largest practice in Weston-Super-Mare. With twenty thousand patients we are housed in one of Weston’s most modern GP buildings.

The practice is situated approximately a mile from junction 21 on the M5, so the practice is easily-commutable from Bristol. It is about 30 minutes from the Clifton Suspension Bridge on the M5 or 30 minutes from Ashton Gate Stadium using the A370.

Our Team at the Heart

We have teams of high skilled clinical and non-clinical staff providing high quality care to our patients. Supporting our 17 GPs we have a Pharmacist Prescriber, Pharmacy Technician, Mental Health Nurse, prescribing Paramedic, Lead Nurse plus a team of ANPs, Practice Nurses and Health Care Assistants. Supporting our clinical staff are a team of named personal Administrative Assistants for each GP and ANP/Paramedic, a Management Team and other administrative support. We firmly believe that our team is at the heart of what we do.

 For GPs specifically, we have well established processes to reduce the amount of administration GPs need to do, for example, we optimise our workflow so the amount of clinical letters you need to review is reduced. We are also about to embark on a pathology optimisation project which aims to safely reduce the amount of pathology a GP needs to process.

We firmly believe that our team is at the heart of what we do.

Salaried GPs – a brighter future

Are you newly qualified or soon to become a GP or an experienced GP keen to build your career

Pier Health was established in July 2019 and is a super partnership of surgeries across Weston-super-Mare, Worle and surrounding villages. Whilst Pier Health is a super partnership, each surgery has a significant amount of local autonomy to ensure they are well equipped to meet the needs of their own patient group. We believe passionately in delivering the very best in care for our patients by continuously improving our service in innovative ways.

We can offer Salaried GPs the opportunity to:

  • maximize your quality of life by offering flexible hours – to allow you to fulfil caring duties and other commitments (e.g. arrive 9.30 a.m. and end 4.30 p.m.) or school term time working only or
  • maximize your income by being a peripatetic GP across various sites gaining experience across a range of sites with competitive salary or
  • maximize your potential by providing support and training to develop specialist area (clinical and/or leadership), whilst still undertaking some sessions within general practice.

Pier Health has all of the benefits of working for a large organisation yet also offers the sense of individuality belonging to a local partnership practice. This is a unique proposition and goes well beyond that of a typical federation or merged practices.

We welcome applications from those who are looking for full and part-time opportunities, from those who wish to be working solely from one of our sites, or those who wish to move around and learn from a number of sites. We will support you by providing protected time away from the work place to develop ideas or realise ambitions. For those interested in focusing on maximising their earning potential we will provide comprehensive, intelligent workforce and administrative support.

This is an exciting time to join Pier Health and you could be part of the team developing and delivering innovative solutions for health care.

Salaried permanent – full-time and part-time considered – flexible working available

Salary negotiable by experience with indemnity paid and NHS pension
