Heathbridge is a great team of GP's, Nurses, Healthcare assistants, and Administrative staff working to better the lives of patients in Putney in South West London. We are highly regarded in Wandsworth for high quality patient care and patient centred care.

We have 19,850 patients but our catchment area is small and most patients live within walking distance or a short bus/bike ride. Because Wandsworth is such a young borough we don't have as many frail elderly as some parts of the country and this means that we don't have high numbers of home visits. It would be highly unusual to have more than one per week and during the pandemic they have been even more infrequent.

We are operating the total triage model of care and all patients are assessed on the telephone or by video. We use the AccuRx triage platform so patients usually have submitted a summary of issues and photos through our website prior to the GP contact.

We are in the process of setting up a local vaccine hub to help combat COVID-19. We have needed to redeploy a GP to help run this centre and so we have a shortage of capacity within our surgery. The extra 4-6 sessions offered by a medium term locum will address this staffing change.

We have a practice pharmasist to do the majority of our prescribing work and medication reviews, nurse practitioner, three physiotherapists, social prescriber, and mental health link worker. Any GP that joins our team will feel very supported by professionals allied to to medicine. We also have a GP with a special interest in dermatology and skin surgery. All these expert staff allows us to keep much of treatment and care in-house.

Salary: £300 per session
Deadline: Fri 29 Jan 2021
