Calling All Self-Employed GPs
Care UK, along with other independent providers of healthcare services are working with the NHS in a collective effort to combat the crisis posed by COVID-19.
In our collective response to COVID-19 Care UK, we are seeking applications from self-employed GPs to respond to increased demand in calls to our Out-of-Hours services.
In particular, we are recruiting for face-to-face clinicians who can work in our primary care bases as well as conducting home visits to patients.
Care UK is the largest provider of unscheduled care services in the UK and we proudly continue to lead the way with innovation in line with the vision of the NHS. This means we have a constant need to add to our bright and dynamic medical team to ensure we continue to fulfil the lives of our patients.
We have permanent or self-employed opportunities within our Surrey Out-of-Hours (OOH) service, with locations in Dorking, Guildford, Epsom, Woking, Ashford, Haslemere, Cranleigh and Redhill.
If you are looking for flexible hours and want to help in this time of need, then we would be happy to discuss how working with us can fit around you and your other commitments.
About the Job
As a GP working in OOH, you’ll be responsible for performing telephone triage for patients who have been referred onto the service. You’ll also treat them face-to-face with the flexibility to choose whether you’d like to do this in one of our Primary Care Centres as a base shift, or at the patient’s own home as part of our home visiting shifts.
The OOH service is open from 6.30pm – 8am Monday – Friday, and 24 hours over the weekends, with various shifts on offer between these times. You will also have the flexibility to choose when you would like to work in order to fit in with your lifestyle.
The skill mix within the service is ANP and GPs, incorporating urgent care, telephone triage, face-to-face appointments and home visits.
