An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly motivated Nurse Practitioner to join our GP practice to extend our Acute Care Team.

Working alongside our existing Nurse Practitioner and GPs, the successful candidate will have a non-medical prescribing qualification and experience of working as an autonomous practitioner in conjunction with a multi-disciplinary team.

Appropriate qualifications and experience to enable the successful candidate to examine, diagnose, treat, prescribe and refer patients presenting with undiagnosed and undifferentiated conditions are essential.

As well as being part of a great team, the successful candidate will benefit from:

  • A friendly, supportive and professional environment;
  • A culture of continuous improvement and learning;
  • Support with ongoing training and development;
  • Regular clinical education sessions;
  • Onsite staff parking;
  • NHS Pension;
  • A staff common room encouraging team interaction over coffee;
  • Excellent remuneration and package based upon previous NHS experience.

Our well-established team includes 6 GP partners supported by excellent clinical and administrative teams serving a list of 10,200 patients. The Acute Care Team operates from our main site in the village of Williton, and we have a branch surgery in the nearby coastal town of Watchet.

Finding the right person for our team is our priority so whilst seeking to fill 37.5 hours per week, we will consider part-time applications for job share.
