Position Description:
Standard general practice.
No on-call, no after-hours work, no weekend work, and no public holiday work.
Proposed start date: as soon as humanly possible.
Also, while they will be happy to have a doctor or any gender, the surgery is currently without a female doctor which has upset a lot of our female patients. Therefore, the addition of a female doctor to the practice would be greeted kindly by their female population.
Qualifications and Experience:
A doctor without restrictions or needing no supervision.
Our doctor is already supervising the only other doctor in the surgery, so undertaking the supervision of another doctor would be too much of an undertaking.
