I love socialising with my family and friends and have found a new love for the gym now!

Chinese food

  1. What is your best achievement?

When I was younger me and my best friend made a bet to see who can visit the most countries by the time we’re 25. I’m currently in the lead with 15 with one year to go J. I have a passion for travelling, I love exploring new countries and their culture.

6. Best advice anyone has given you?

The advice I give myself: What you don’t ask for you don’t get!

Will a 7 Day NHS Work?

Since the recent conservative win in the election David Cameron wasted no time in diving head first into the discussion of creating a seven day a week NHS. However this has caused a stir amongst healthcare professionals, especially GPC Chairman Dr Nagpaul.

However numerous people have the same view. As a medical recruitment company we saw many people upset with the conservative win. However we also saw others excited by the premises of a seven day NHS and GP Surgeries opening up to 8am – 8pm.

The conservatives have promised a recruit of 5,000 extra GP’s which would help drive their new plans. However some GP’s believe this to be impossible.

Dr Nagpaul said;

“I call upon the prime minister to jettison the political pipe dreams of tomorrow and get real about how we resource, resuscitate and rebuild general practice today. It’s absolutely pointless promising 5,000 extra GPs within this parliament if we lose 10,000 GPs retiring in the same period.”

Dr Nagpaul is joining those on the pessimistic side who wants a realistic change and wants it now. He went on further to say;

“Ministers must halt their surreal obsession for practices to open seven days when there aren’t the GPs to even cope with current demands…The newly elected government must wake up to this alarming reality not only because it will fail dismally in its manifesto pledge for 5,000 extra GPs, but crucially because unless it turns this around we won’t have a comprehensive general practice service in parts of the UK.

However fighting the success of the new plans was The Department of Health who said it was an “overly negative, pessimistic view…Thousands of GPs across the country are already offering patients GP access seven days a week – by next March, a third of the country will be covered.”

If that is true than perhaps the seven days a week GP access is something professionals believe to be important and a vital step in progressing past this current healthcare crisis.

They went on further to say;

“We have made it very clear that we will train 5,000 more GPs and have backed the NHS’s own plan for the future by investing the £8bn it needs to transform care closer to home.”

The question we ask is – do we stay focused on this long term goal? Or is the state of Primary Care too dyer to afford waiting any longer for change that could happen now?

Please let us know your thoughts if you think a 7 day NHS is possible, and is it the way forward?

Why Be a Salaried GP?

After the issues that have brewed with the NHS and the shortage of GP’s, general practitioners have realized that there may be a better way to do the job they love to do. We found a solution to the answer by providing salaried positions to General Practitioners. There are numerous benefits as to why this could solve some of the issues surrounding the career, and be of a huge benefit to the said GP!

  1. Stability

heaven gif No more concerns, or worries about what the future may hold, or the stress you may feel within a practice. As a Salaried GP you will have a stable work environment, and find your place in a hardworking team. You will also have financial stability; knowing you have a guaranteed job and income, on fixed terms arranged by yourself. Not to mention having a structured working week, making it easier to plan social engagements, childcare etc.

  1. Fixed Commitment

so good gif While your employer can request that you do an extra shift, you do not have to accept, and they cannot demand that you provide the extra cover. Your main commitment will be to clinical work, and many doctors prefer this – managing other employees, dealing with the upkeep of the building, keeping an eye on the accounts will not be your responsibility.

  1. Extra Benefits

love-this-job MDU fees are paid for you, alongside your highly paid annum salary. Paid annual leave, sickness and maternity benefits.

  1. Less Stress

need to relax gif In a salaried role the GP can focus on the clinical work and won’t have to worry or deal with the responsibilities of a partner.

  1. Continuity

good-challenging-messy-3 Having a perm positions means that relationships can be built with the same patients. Training and development will be accessible also, all with no strings attached should It ever come to the GP wanting to leave the practice. Contact us today to find out more about what Salaried positions we can do for you! Call: 0203 137 2114 Email: applications@primarycare-jobs.co.uk

The Recruiter Awards

Last night Primary Care People attended The Recruiter Awards at Grosvenor House Hotel. We joined the awards as part of being shortlisted for Best New Agency in the whole country!

Although we did not win, we feel like winners to have been there. To be recognized as one of the best recruiters in the UK, alongside only 4 other companies, was a real achievement for the company.

At only 18 months old the business has grown immensely, and the team is getting bigger as a result.

We are so proud of our hard work and dedication of every staff member to getting the company where it is today.

With determination, Primary Care People have built a solid reputation and have collated numbers of successful clients and candidates who work hard themselves every day.

Being in the healthcare business we are a 24 hour, 7 days a week agency. We continue to love what we do, and help ensure patients and clients are seen to, and that GP’s and Nurse’s are happy and supported in their roles.

We continue to feel humbled by the loyalty and team morale that all our candidates and clients can give us. Together we will continue to grow stronger, especially at this time and need of the primary healthcare issues.

To be shortlisted as Best New Agency was a win in itself, but we have done our best, and we will continue to do the best for our candidates and our staff.

Well done to all who won and entered. We are proud that our hard work has been seen.

Caring for you, so you can care for others.
