GP Partner/Salaried GP

Somerset Bridge Medical Centre, Bridgwater, Somerset, TA6 6LD


An exciting opportunity to join a friendly, patient-focused practice in Somerset, located within easy reach of Taunton, Bristol and the Somerset coast.

The practice is multi-disciplinary, dynamic and innovative. Our focus is patient-centred care with lots of engagement with local community. We really enjoy our work, develop new services regularly, and are involved in training across different professions. We have abandoned ‘duty doctor’ sessions in favour of mutual support and have many patient groups supporting the practice. We have lots of expertise within the practice and you will be encouraged and supported in your own areas of special interest.

This is a golden opportunity for both newly qualified GPs or experienced GPs to come and join a forward-looking, dynamic, multi-disciplinary team.
