Long-term/maternity locum GP

Are you a GP who prefers to locum?
Want to work in a friendly, supportive team?
Looking for work that fits around other personal and professional commitments?

This could be the place for you! We’re looking for long-term locum GPs to join us at Riverside Medical Practice in East Lothian, to cover maternity leaves. We’re flexible about how many sessions a week you do – whatever your need, contact us for a chat, we may also be able to accommodate school drop-offs and pick ups. We’re located close to both Edinburgh City Centre and East Lothian’s fabulous beaches.

We’re a Vision Practice who offer 15 minute appointments. 26 appointments per day – no home visits, no duty doctor, no docman.

We’re not a Deep End Practice but we’re a busy surgery (list size 19,600) located in an area with significant health inequality – so we’re looking for GPs who are really passionate about working in this type of environment and who really want to make a difference.

Please contact Helen on 0131 446 4060 or helen.marsden@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk to arrange an informal visit and chat with one of our GP partners.

We have a stable, 50-strong team in place at Riverside: eight new GPs have chosen to join us across 2021-22, along with three Nurse Practitioners from NHS 24 who are developing in-house telephone triage, to help us manage calls and make sure you see the patients who really need to see a GP. Be part of the team as we enter this period of transformation, in order to offer the best care we possibly can to all.

We also have a specialist paramedic, psychiatric nurse, two embedded local health board pharmacists, two chronic disease nurse specialists plus treatment room nursing, phlebotomists and close working relationships with local health board urgent care, mental health and MSK services. Our care home resident patients are looked after by a dedicated local health board team, with support from our care home lead GP.

The Practice is located in a purpose-built health centre with plentiful consulting rooms, kitchen, sun terrace and onsite parking. Fresh fruit and sweet treats on hand daily! Four supportive GP partners, great call handling team and other usual operational support staff. This is a well-organised training Practice, with mature processes in place.

Completely flexible on days around your needs and option to work from home on occasion as needed. Sessions can be spread across as many days as you like, to fit in with your life.

We look forward to hearing from you!

We’re committed to innovation, and developing our service to meet these goals.
