Job Vacancies

Urgent Care Practitioners (Salary Band 7)

We are looking for Nurse Practitioners, Paramedic Practitioners or other suitably qualified allied health professionals to work with our expanding friendly and supportive team at Faversham Medical Practice and Urgent Treatment Centre.

An independent prescribing qualification would be beneficial but is not essential.

This position requires working some Bank Holidays, regular Saturdays and Sundays, evenings and other cover when needed as our Urgent Treatment Centre is open 7 days a week 8am to 8pm.

Faversham is a beautiful, historic market town. It is close to the vibrant city of Canterbury; just 60 miles from London and yet within easy reach of attractive coastline areas and beaches.

We are based in a Health Centre with newly renovated consulting rooms and X-ray facilities on-site. You will be joining a team of 6 urgent care practitioners, 9 GPs as well as our practice nurses and health care assistants.

We are looking for Part Time or Full Time applicants. We would also consider Job Share applications. 

An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check including checks against the barred list will be carried out as part of our recruitment procedures and also regularly during employment.  The responsibility for payment of this lies with the Practice.

It is a requirement that safeguarding training will remain up to date and the safeguarding policies and procedures in place within the Practice will be adhered to during employment.

Faversham Medical Practice is committed to equality of opportunity and compliance under disability discrimination legislation.

We give a premium of £3,000 gross per annum to FTE UCPs that have successfully passed the prescribing qualification and have become independent prescribers, payable over 12 months. This is pro-rata for part-time UCPs.
