  • 4-6 clinical sessions, 2 paid educational sessions

  • £95,000 pro-rata

Practice Information


Larwood Health Partnership has an exciting opportunity for a GP to join an “Outstanding” practice and develop new skills whilst being supported by an established team. 

The Trailblazer Fellowship Scheme is an exciting opportunity that aims to support GPs and practices working in areas of health deprivation. Being a Trailblazer Fellow will give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to effectively help patients with complex health and social care needs and is a great way to start to build a portfolio career and develop a sought after special interest.


We have in excess of 34,000 patients over 5 sites in North Nottinghamshire (2 town sites and 3 village sites).  Although we are a big practice and focus on the needs of local people, we are a strong supportive team which includes practice pharmacists, paramedics and nurse practitioners.  We work in partnership with community nurses and the voluntary sector as part of the Primary Care Home initiative.  We also provide protected learning time to attend local education sessions and provide opportunities for our GPs to develop specialist skills.


We have a strong record of innovation and are also rated Outstanding by CQC, have been awarded the RCGP Quality Practice Award and are an Advanced Training Practice, providing training at all levels within primary care.
