We deliver acute hospital, primary, community and mental health care services to a population of around 1.15 million and a wider population of 2.2 million when our regional and national services are included. The geographical area covered is diverse; from the major city of Glasgow, large and small towns, villages and some rural districts; and encompasses 6 Health and Social Care Partnerships areas from East Dunbartonshire to Inverclyde.

Our GP out-of-hours service is a fundamental part of the healthcare service provided by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde supporting those who require medical assistance when GP practices are not available. The service is delivered from sites which are geographically spread across the Board area and is currently delivered from core centres located at both our Ambulatory Care Hospitals at the Victoria Hospital (south Glasgow ) and Stobhill Hospital (north Glasgow) and at the Royal Alexandra Hospital (Renfrewshire) and the Vale of Leven Hospital ( Dunbartonshire) .

The quality and safety of out-of-hours care is extremely important to ensure we provide patients with access to consistent and high quality standards of care.

It is a very exciting time to be joining the largest NHS Board in Scotland as we are well underway with a planned series of improvements to urgent primary care services. This includes the recent introduction of a new appointments system designed to help create a more robust, reliable and sustainable service by reducing waiting times, enabling discrete appointments and improving access to GP out-of-hours services while also ensuring social distancing can be observed at our urgent primary care centres.

In addition to having a scheduled appointment system, patients will also now have the opportunity for telephone consultations with our Out of Hours GP team via Attend Anywhere, which allows for virtual consultations to take place which means patients will have access healthcare without having to travel to an urgent primary care centre.

The Majority of rota spaces available cover the weekend rota.

Successful candidates for these roles will be motivated to provide excellent patient care as well as supporting in the operational and strategic planning for the development of the emergency care service where appropriate, and further development of the service.
