• Be the GP you want to be!

    Devon Doctors has just begun recruiting GPs for innovative, salaried, portfolio roles across the county – more details of the first such role are available here.

    While portfolio careers are not new, our scheme, which will enable GPs to consolidate a variety of roles, across different settings, such as general practice, integrated urgent care, and hospital, stands alone in that there will be a single employer – Devon Doctors.

    As you might imagine, this will simplify what can otherwise be a complicated situation in respect of areas such as payroll, pension, and holidays, while also making it much easier for GPs to reconcile the demands of different roles.

    What is more, Devon Doctors is confident this initiative, which will focus on Exeter and Plymouth, will deliver significant benefits across the healthcare community, while heightening the resilience of its own integrated urgent care service.

    Research has revealed that many soon-to-be-qualified GPs would relish the opportunity to undertake a salaried position encompassing a range of roles in different settings. At the same time, we believe there will be others who have worked as a GP for some time and might welcome a break from full-time general practice and the opportunity to expand their portfolio.

    In partnership with University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust and NEW Devon CCG, the goal is to create roles which will reduce burnout, and increase wellbeing, while improving recruitment and retention.
