Long Term Locum General Practitioner - GP - Military General Practice
Required in Gosport, Hampshire

Full time hours
Contract: 1 year locum placement
Starting: ASAP

Mind Professionals are recruiting for Locum GP's to work with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in multiple regions across the UK, including specifically, their base in the South West.

The MoD require their Locum GP's to provide high a quality Primary Healthcare Service for serving armed forces personnel, their dependent families and other entitled personnel on site, based from dedicated Medical Centre premises located within military base stations. They also require their GP's to carry out Occupational Health assessments (within the scope of their experience and qualifications) for the purpose of assessing any medical condition that could potentially affect a serviceman's ability to undertake their duties.

These roles offer opportunity for GP's to fully utilise and expand their skills in general practice, working outside of the frontline NHS environment, and with a patient population whose ability to perform and sustain their service responsibilities, is wholly dependent upon optimisation of their health and wellbeing.

We require all candidates to hold full registration with the General Medical Council (GMC), entry to the GMC GP Register, a valid licence to practice, independent indemnity insurance, and to be fully up to date with CPD and Annual Appraisals in accordance with GMC and Royal College of General Practitioners’ Guidelines.

Previous Ministry of Defence (MOD) experience is highly desirable (but not mandatory), as is experience working with formerly serving war veterans, or within military primary healthcare services overseas.

Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP); Diploma of the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (DFSRH), is also desirable, although not mandatory.

Working for Mind Professionals, you will receive an unrivalled quality of service:

- Competitive hourly rates
- Access to roles unadvertised on the open market, gained through long standing relationships with our NHS, Independent Sector and Military partner provider services.
- Access for our Consultant's and GP's to regular case referrals for Medico Legal Work / Expert Witness Reports
- One to one Medical Director support for all aspects of your professional life as a locum: day to day assistance, medical governance matters, Designated Body access, annual appraisals and revalidation.
- Dedicated day to day administrative support

If your availability does not quite match the above post, please do respond as there may be flexibility regarding hours or other locations within the MoD that are looking for part time specifically.

For more information in relation to the above posts, or regarding other of our locum or substantive roles, or for a more general discussion, please contact Erin by applying here.
