The Pump House
GP & Medical
07 Jul 2021
About the Role
The Pump House Surgery is a much-loved semi-rural practice having been established in the village over 200 years ago.  We are a four-partner practice, working from spacious premises converted from a former steel foundry 15 years ago.  It is the foundry engine room which has inspired the name of Pump House - at the heart of the community, looking after the hearts of our community!

We are seeking a GP with a view to partnership, for a commitment of 2/3 days per week. The post will be available from November 2021, although we would be willing to wait for the right candidate.

About the Candidate
We are seeking an enthusiastic General Practitioner to join us. We have a full complement of clinical and administrative staff, including practice manager, finance assistant, dispensary manager and 2 nurse practitioners.   We work closely with our PCN, and currently share provision of 3 MSK practitioners, 2 clinical pharmacists, 2 health coaches and 1 social prescriber to support GP workload.  Further PCN posts are currently in development. 

We have a stable list size of 7900 patients. We use SystmOne, do not have out of hours commitment and enjoy a high QOF achievement. We are committed to quality and innovation within a positive and supportive culture. We host medical students from Anglia Ruskin Medical School and also regularly share in the training of allied health staff, including physician associates and nurse practitioners.  We hold a variety of specialist clinics including diabetes, respiratory with spirometry, and family planning.  We do joint injections and necessary minor surgery.  Current partners hold interests in women’s health, head and neck conditions, care of the elderly, sports medicine and medical education.  We encourage specialist interests. The Pump House Surgery, in close collaboration with our PCN, recently acted as a Covid vaccination hub which was a resounding success.
