Due to retirement, we are seeking an ambitious Partner or Partners to join Riverside, Foyers and Cromarty Medical Practices, working 6 to 8 sessions per week. The Practice operates a Board structure with Directors (currently 7 Partners) plus the General Manager, with an elected Chairman and Executive Partner. As a Partner you would have an immediate and equal position as a Director on our Board. We are a group of three GP Practices covering urban and rural locations. Riverside is in the heart of Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands. Situated on the picturesque River Ness yet only a stroll from the city centre, it offers a typically vibrant and dynamic urban environment. Foyers is a small, rural, dispensing practice based on the eastern bank of Loch Ness, 20 miles south west of Inverness. Cromarty Medical Practice, is also a rural (non-dispensing) practice on the Black Isle, 25 miles to the north-east of Inverness. This Partnership presents exciting and unique combinations of consulting in both rural as well as urban practice, with all the rewards and challenges that each entails, in three medical centres with a half hour drive between each. All practices are located in modern, purpose-built, efficient premises, with great staff. We already host GP trainees, FY2s and medical students at Riverside, offering experience at Foyers and Cromarty – and we are expanding training with Scot GEM this year. Other interests include minor surgery, occupational medicine, sports medicine, clinical leadership and medico-politics. We are keen to support doctors to either undertake traditional general practice or have a portfolio career – or both. * Financially very stable Partnership. * Full profit sharing with immediate parity. * Sabbatical (4 weeks) taken in annual rotation * Eight weeks' annual leave (including five days public holidays). * Golden Hello available to eligible applicants (typically £7.5-£10k). * Very manageable workload, with excellent work-life balance: surgeries currently 11 appointments, very low home visiting rate, excellent nurse-led Duty Practitioner Team, Pharmacotherapy Service, Physiotherapy pending. * Circa 10,100 patients registered in Inverness and 1000 in both Cromarty and Foyers. * All three surgeries use INPS Vision and Docman. * Currently seven GP Partners across Riverside, Foyers and Cromarty. * Five Salaried GPs. * Four Advanced Nurse Practitioners. * One Practice employed Clinical Pharmacist plus Board employed Pharmacy team. * Two Practice Nurses, three Healthcare Assistants and one Pharmacy Dispenser. * Weekly protected Educational/Clinical Meetings. * Travel to Foyers and Cromarty Medical Practices funded. * No OOH commitment, although sessions available locally.
