Tower Hamlets GP Out of Hours Service prides itself on providing good quality care for our residents out of hours.
To improve our service further we are introducing 'Away From My Desk' which allows GPs to support Out of Hours remotely. We plan to use this to ensure service availability and performance including times where there is a surge in demand.
There are a number of GPs locally who currently do not work for GP Out of Hours that previously mentioned that they may be prepared to work for a few hours if they could do so from home.
We are looking for GPs with excellent telephone consultation skills that are interested in working remotely to carry out telephone consultations to join our team. These will be 'on call' in nature which means that if you are on the rota you would need to be available to log in as and when required. There may be a need to undertake an occasional home visit, where this is the case our driver will pick you up from your location and take you there, returning you to your preferred location afterwards.
Payment and induction
We will pay £35 per hour on-call and where a doctor spends >50% of the shift on duty they will be paid at the full rate for the hours worked (this is just £10 per hour less than those working a full shift based at the Royal London site]). A full induction will be provided via a booked appointment at the Royal London Hospital site. Indemnity cover for GPs working in the service is also provided.
If you are already working in Out of Hours and would be interested in undertaking on-call sessions please let us know.
