Sessional GPs (Kent)

The Role 

Express new ideas, take initiative and save lives. Others talk about being brave, at IC24, we’re made that way.

From providing high quality integrated urgent care for over six million people, to thinking of innovative solutions for our patients – every role at IC24 is made to be brave.

Integrated Care 24 (IC24) provides out of hours primary care to populations in Surrey, Sussex, Kent, Essex and Norfolk.  If you are a General Practitioner then we would be interested to hear from you!

We have a range of sessional shifts available covering the out-of-hours period – weekday evenings, Bank Holidays, overnight and throughout weekends. Roles are varied and include working at our bases seeing patients face-to-face, carrying out home visits to those in need or triaging patients over the telephone.

We are also developing the Clinical Assessment Services (CAS) across our localities which is facilitating greater integration between the 111 service and out-of-hours clinicians. New roles are emerging in this area including GP-consultant roles which see GPs providing oversight and advice to their out-of-hours colleagues.

Out-of-hours primary care allows you to concentrate on the acute medical presentations of your patients and leave aside some of the usual administrative demands of in-hours primary care. So if you are looking to invigorate your passion for medicine and hone your acute medical skills then you should definitely consider out-of-hours work. Other advantages include team-working with front-line clinicians, variable shift times to suit different lifestyles and competitive hourly rates.

Who are we? 

We are Integrated Care 24 (IC24), the leading not-for-profit Social Enterprise providing innovative and patient-focused primary care services. IC24 is committed to improving access to health and social care for our patients and reducing the demand on secondary care services. IC24 provides services to over 6 million patients, including GP led out-of-hours services, NHS 111, primary care and secondary care support services, and health and justice nursing services.
