Locum GP – Cornwall Health for Homeless

Closing date: 30/10/2020

Summary

Cornwall Health for Homeless is seeking holistic, empathic GPs who are looking both for sessional work and to add new skills to their portfolio. We are a small team and you will be well supported. The service runs regular drop-in clinics in Truro, Camborne and Penzance that are open to people who are either street homeless or in temporary accommodation.

Cornwall Health for Homeless aims to provide a range of healthcare services to people without homes in Cornwall. To achieve this, they work with other organisations which include St Petroc’s and Coastline Homeless Service as well as other local and national statutory groups. Part of their role is to help people live more stable lives and gain access to suitable accommodation.

 

Clinics run in three locations across the county, no appointment is necessary and people are able to drop-in at any time during the clinic. Three GPs, a nurse, an office manager and two admin staff provide the service. Medical advice and treatment is available from the clinics We encourage locums to spend more time with each patient than would normally be available in general practice, and try to view each patient holistically rather than considering their presenting problem only.
