Salaried General Practitioner

Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust is at the heart of the delivery of healthcare within the communities of Liverpool reaching a population of approximately 750,000 people. 

The Organisation is transforming services to deliver care on a locality footprint which is clinically led and responsive to the local population's health and wellbeing.

We have a team of over 2000 staff – 80 per cent of whom are practising health professionals  including Nurses, Community Matrons, Health Visitors, GPs, Dentists, Dieticians, Podiatrists,  Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Therapists. We also deliver  specialist Dental Health Care, Therapies, Medicines Management and Nutrition and Dietetic Service. 

We deliver services to people within their own homes, health centres, clinics, walk-in centres, and  intermediate care centres. Our staff and services come into contact with hundreds of thousands of people in our local communities every year and therefore are often involved not just with patients, but also their families, carers and the communities in which they live. This means our staff can help to understand patients’ holistic health and social needs, including education, prevention, early detection and self-care.

Our services enable people to be cared for in their own community and remain as independent as  possible, rather than having to go to hospital. Many of these services are delivered out-of-hours,  with 24 hour, 7 day a week access.

As a Trust, we value our team and provide a range of great benefits to all our staff, including:
- Salary sacrifice car scheme
- Cycle to work scheme
- Childcare voucher scheme
- Staff physiotherapy service
- CPD, access to training
- Flexible working
- Staff support services
- NHS employee discounts

***Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust have recently been successful in their bid to run the community services of Liverpool Community Health (LCH).

This will take effect by 1st April 2018 and, at that time, this position will transfer from LCH to Mersey Care***




Liverpool Community Health (LCH) is looking to employ a number of salaried GPs to join its new Intensive Community Care Team (ICCT). LCH is committed to providing high quality services that deliver care for the people and communities as close to their home as possible. We have a set of five organisational core values that represent a commitment to our patients and community. These ensure that all the decisions we make will be in the best interests and influenced by the people we serve.

The ICCT will provide rapid, responsive and intensive patient-centred care within the patient’s own home through use of a multi-disciplinary team working, consisting of a team of GPs, nurses, health care and allied health professionals. This is to maximise not only the health potential of the individual patient but also address the wider health and social care needs through a cohesive approach. The aim of this team is to care for patients within their home environment and in time facilitate earlier discharge for certain patients.

This fantastic opportunity to join this new exciting service will enable the GP to work with a variety of community staff and providers to increase patient care in the community. The service has the full backing of the community providers along with support from senior clinicians. The role will appeal to GP’s who are interested in developing new skills (the post will include developing opportunities) or who are interested in pursuing a portfolio career. If you are interested in developing your primary care experience and being instrumental in shaping the development of the ICCT, this is the role for you.

37.5 hours per week over 9 sessions (part time hours will be considered)
