Would you like to join a thriving, enthusiastic young practice? Chilcote Surgery, Torquay

Due to our popularity and increasing patient numbers and retirement of GPs, our GP team would like to welcome a salaried GP/GP Partner for up to 8 sessions per week.

  • A contribution to relocation costs may be available and the practice is willing to fund appropriate training courses such as telephone triage by way of support.
  • Our current list size embraces 13650 patients but we expect this number to continue to rise.
  • As a training practice we host Registrars, F2s and medical students so are well versed in extending mentorship and support to new GPs that join us.
  • Your days at Chilcote could be part of a portfolio career – one of our partners combines her Chilcote role with that of a Clinical Director with the ICO.
  • The GPs have flexibility of appointment length as these are managed through the Dr First system which allows you to be in control of your working day.
  • We have a nurse visiting service that cares for our housebound patients and we hold 4 clinics per week at a local centre for those who are homeless.
  • Two of our partners and one of our nurses are involved inresearch work and we are a high referrer to social prescribing.
  • Working closely with all our healthcare colleaguesis a priority for us whether they are in other practices, the community or the acute.
  • Chilcote is part of Baywide Primary Care Network (with Pembroke House Surgery and Compass House Medical Centres).
