Locum GP with Cornwall Health for Homeless

Hours: varied
Closing date: 31/12/2022

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.

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.

The service runs regular clinics in Truro, Camborne and Penzance that are open to people who are either street homeless or in temporary accommodation. People are able to drop-in at any time during the clinic.
Three GPs, a nurse, an office manager and an administrator 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.

If this is of interest to you & you would like to find out more, please do not hesitate to contact the team by email [email protected] or call 01872 273617
