GP Vacancy – Salaried (Mauchline)

BALLOCHMYLE MEDICAL GROUP

Salaried GP with View to Partnership – 6 sessions per week

Ballochmyle Medical Group seeks a Salaried GP with a view to future partnership for 6 sessions per week, to start as soon as possible.

About the practice:

The Ballochmyle Medical Group is a semi-rural GP practice set within the East Ayrshire countryside. We operate out of two surgeries, in the small towns of Mauchline and Catrine. Both surgeries run full time. We have 7 GP partners.

We pride ourselves in being an innovative and a forward thinking practice. We have partners with special interests in minor surgery, dermatology, joint injections, family planning, sexual health and diabetes management.

Our Practice Manager is involved in the Centre for Excellence and helps drive our practice forward with involvement in many pilot projects over the years.

We are a training practice and regularly have GPSTs plus medical students throughout the year.

We are also involved in the GP run rehabilitation unit at East Ayrshire Community Hospital, which is a valuable resource for our elderly population. One of our GPs works closely with the Medicine for the Elderly consultant here. We are able to admit patients directly here and manage them without secondary care involvement.

We are quite a youthful practice and all GPs have an interest in keeping active and healthy. We also enjoy socialising with each other outside of the work environment.

We have an outstanding nursing team including 5 practice nurses and a specialist community nurse looking after our palliative or complex housebound patients. We have excellent links with our district nurses also. Our nurses are very skilled and include a nurse prescriber. We also have a health care assistant who is trained to perform a number of skills alongside phlebotomy.

We have approximately 8500 patients with a very mixed demographic.
