Further information

This is a salaried post, offered in partnership with Hull York Medical School’s Academy of Primary Care, for between 6-8 sessions per week for 1 year. 2 of the sessions will be non-clinical and will enable you to develop clinical scholarship and leadership skills. The content of these sessions is flexible and will be determined in partnership with you to ensure that it aligns with your interests and longer-term career aspirations.

You will be able to choose one of two intiial options. You will have the opportunity to work on an on-going funded mental health research project, where you can develop your own research question and pursue this in a supportive environment.

If you would prefer to develop your educational skills, you will be invited to work with the new Academy of Primary Care Portfolio Fellows to contribute to developing new research-led teaching resources for both medical students and postgraduate training. You will also have the opportunity to be involved in teaching within HYMS and on the York GP training scheme. We are also looking to develop an in-house training programme for our allied health professionals, which you could be supported to lead on.

This post comes with full funding for you to complete either a Postgraduate Certificate in Health Research or Health Professions Education.

You will also become a member of the Academy of Primary Care’s WISE GP group supporting GPs at all career stages interested in adding scholarship and academic activities to their career portfolio. You will benefit from peer support and career development opportunities within this group.

Clinically, you will manage a patient caseload, run routine and urgent care surgeries and home visits. You can develop skills in minor surgery, joint injections and gynaecological procedures, depending on your clinical interests. All MyHealth doctors are invited to weekly Partner’s meetings and encouraged to be involved in practice management if interested.

We are a well-connected practice and there will be opportunity to shadow Partners at Local Medical Committee and Primary Care Network meetings and broaden knowledge of local primary care political landscape. Beyond this, through links with the University of York and HYMS, you will be given the opportunity to shadow and work with colleagues from the Society for Academic Primary Care (SAPC) and Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), piloting new content for the national GP Scholarship programme.

Here at MyHealth we aim to deliver a comprehensive and high standard of healthcare. We have four health care centres serving more than 19,000 patients across an area of over 200 square miles to the North East of York. MyHealth has a strong ethos in supporting and developing our dedicated healthcare team along with our service. We pride ourselves on the quality of the care we provide; working in partnership with our patients and our team to help maintain health and

wellbeing throughout the community. We are a high achieving practice with a desire to provide a sustainable and supportive environment for our team to thrive in. We are enthusiastic about the future of general practice.

Our ideal candidate would share our passion for general practice, service development and improved patient care. You should have received your CCT within the last 5 years and should not have previously held a substantive salaried or partnership post.
