Description:
 
Due to the forthcoming retiral of our senior partner, we're looking for another GP to join our team of 6 GP Partners for 4-8 sessions per week. We pride ourselves on our stable, supportive team; maintaining a healthy work/life balance is important to us. Ours is a purpose built, leased building with ample space for expansion to meet the needs of our growing practice population (currently 9200 with expected expansion to around 11500). Our premises are shared with our excellent extended primary Care Team (DN's, HVs, CPN, Midwives, Physiotherapy, Podiatrist, SALT, Addictions Team & School Nursing Team). We are a teaching practice (medical students and student DN's, HV's and midwives) with no OOH commitment, although there is the opportunity for this should you wish to be involved. West Calder is only 18 miles from Edinburgh and 30 miles from Glasgow and Stirling. We have the best of both worlds; plenty of rolling countryside and fresh air, but close to all major road and rail links. We are proud that our Practice was featured in a recent Scottish Government film promoting General Practice as a career https://youtu.be/u1u5bUrqvnA We are a stable oasis. Come and join us! Informal enquiries welcome - contact Hazel Dowling (hazel.dowling@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk) or Sandra Wallace (sandra.wallace@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk) on 01506 874300.
