Trailblazers Fellowship GP

Parkside Medical Practice are seeking an enthusiastic GP in the first five years post CCT to join them as a Trailblazers Fellow, undertaking clinical GP work within the practice (4 sessions) alongside two funded education and project development sessions.

Job Description

Parkside Medical Practice is a CQC rated ‘good’ practice located in a modern, purpose built, building near the centre of Bulwell on the outskirts of Nottingham. They are a few minutes walk from bus, tram and train services and have on site car parking.

They have three partners (two GPs and one ANP), with three salaried GPs, a second ANP, two practice nurses (soon to be three) and HCA/phlebotomy support. All clinicians are supported by an enthusiastic and competent administrative and reception team.

They are active within the Bulwell and Top Valley PCN, with access to first contact physiotherapists, pharmacists, social prescribers, health and wellbeing coach and a pharmacy technician.

About the role

The Trailblazer Fellowship Scheme is an exciting opportunity that aims to support GPs and practices working in areas of health deprivation. This type of healthcare is intellectually stimulating and extremely rewarding, but might also have challenges that can seem daunting early in your career. Being a Trailblazer Fellow will give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to effectively help patients with complex health and social care needs and is a great way to start to build a portfolio career and develop a sought after special interest.

The fellowships are 12 month fixed term contracts for GPs within their first five years post CCT and will offer a combination of clinical sessions and two paid education and development sessions. In this protected time you will take part in a virtual national education programme relating to health inequalities, learn about local services available for patients with complex health needs relating to deprivation, form a supportive peer group with other Trailblazer fellows and undertake some relevant project work within your practice or PCN. You will also have access to a personal budget to spend on your own learning needs. Please note that being a Trailblazer can be combined with New to Practice Fellowship, so that if you are within the first two years post CCT you can access the Trailblazer scheme in addition to the usual support alongside your peers.

Post holder benefits

A personal budget of up to £3000 for coaching and CPD.
Can be combined with New to Practice Scheme if eligible (within 2 years post CCT).
