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.
