There are a huge amount of benefits to working in a rural GP practice; with fantastic wide open spaces, beautiful scenery and a great local community! If you’re looking for a change of scenery, in a welcoming area where you can really make a difference; it doesn’t get any better than this! 

Due to retirements, we’re looking for enthusiastic, forward thinking and dedicated GP's to join our friendly, supportive team at the Upper Eden Medical Practice in Kirkby Stephen. We’re looking for 6-8 sessions, however fewer sessions would be considered for the right candidate. We offer a competitive salary plus payment of medical indemnity fees and we’re also happy to help with relocation costs for the right candidate. Immediate start can also be accommodated. 

The Upper Eden Medical Practice is a rural dispensing practice with a list size of 6700 patients and we pride ourselves on delivering an exceptional quality of care. We’re a forward thinking, patient centered practice, with dedicated GP’s, a paramedic practitioner, nurse practitioner, practice nurses and HCA’s, who are all capably supported by an excellent administrative team. We recognise and value the importance of wellbeing and an effective work/life balance. We provide 15 minute appointments, scheduled daily mid-morning coffee breaks, dedicated admin time and actively encourage special interests. Flexible working options are also available subject to discussion. 

Surrounded by spectacular scenery, the ancient market town of Kirkby Stephen at the head of the picturesque Eden Valley, is an inviting prospect for anyone who loves the outdoor life and appreciates the benefits of living in one of the most scenic locations in England. We have affordable housing, excellent schools and local amenities, plus the added benefit of being only 10 minutes from the M6 and West Coast mainline railway, so even the likes of Manchester and Newcastle are easily accessible! If our vacancy sounds appealing, we would encourage you to come for an informal visit where you can take a look around, meet the team and enjoy our beautiful location!
