The re­cruit­ment drive, which got un­der­way with ad­verts in the in­ter­na­tional med­i­cal jour­nal BMJ, is part of the board’s pri­mary care and men­tal health trans­for­ma­tion pro­gramme. In recog­ni­tion of a deficit in the num­ber of GPs cou­pled with the in­creas­ing de­mand on ser­vices, the pro­gramme aims to rad­i­cally trans­form how the public ac­cess gen­eral prac­tice and how pri­mary care ser­vices are de­liv­ered to meet cur­rent and fu­ture need.

Iain Wal­lace, med­i­cal di­rec­tor of NHS La­nark­shire, said: ”GP prac­tices across the UK are find­ing it more com­pet­i­tive than ever to at­tract new prac­ti­tion­ers so it’s cru­cial that we set out and pro­mote what’s spe­cial about work­ing in La­nark­shire.

“The Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment has made fund­ing avail­able to sup­port health boards in re­cruit­ing and re­tain­ing GPs and we’re tak­ing full ad­van­tage of that to make the sys­tem-wide changes needed to make gen­eral prac­tice in La­nark­shire a first choice for doctors. That’s fun­da­men­tal to our vi­sion of pro­vid­ing world-lead­ing, high qual­ity, per­son-cen­tred care to the peo­ple of La­nark­shire.

Prac­tices across La­nark­shire have a range of em­ploy­ment op­tions on of­fer for qual­i­fied GPs in­clud­ing, full part­ner­ships, clin­i­cal lead­er­ship, port­fo­lio ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties and salar­ied GP po­si­tions with baseprac­tice work­ing and flex­i­ble con­tracts avail­able.

In­ter­ested GPs can send their de­tails to pcs@ la­nark­shire.scot.nhs.uk.
