East Berkshire Primary Care Out of Hours Services (EBPC) is looking to recruit a number of salaried GPs.
We are a not for profit, Community Benefit Society registered with the FSA and are currently providing services within Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire covering a population of 450,000 patients.
We have Primary Care Centres (PCCs) at Herschel Medical Centre in Slough, Heatherwood Hospital in Ascot and St Marks Hospital in Maidenhead. We also manage Urgent Care Centres (UCCs) at Wexham Park Hospital (WPH) in Slough and St Marks Hospital in Maidenhead in the Outpatients Department. We have five cars which are used for home visits; all fitted with a tracking system, resuscitation kits, oxygen, secure drug cabinets and on board computers.
We run the following sessional types on the rota:
PCC – on site, face to face consultations
Advice Line – telephone advice which can be done from home or on site, and
Home Visits – with our own driver and car provided.
We also have daytime sessions available from our UCC in Wexham Park Hospital so Doctors are able to vary their sessions.
The Society is very much a community; many doctors have been working with the society for the last 17 years. Many of these doctors are partners at local practices but with the changes in the NHS we recognise more demands are being made on GPs in hours and for this reason we have decided to offer salaried positions on 1 year contracts.
Included benefits are 1 days study leave per month, Medical Indemnity reimbursed and 6 weeks holiday per annum. These benefits will be paid pro rata, based on a 40 hour week. EBPC is a member of the NHS Pensions Scheme and these posts are NHS pensionable.
If you are interested in the following position or would like further information, please contact Denise Spiller via our switchboard on 03000243333 or email [email protected] to obtain further details.
