We are recruiting and experienced Physician Associate in GP on behalf of our client. Our client is a NHS GP Practice that offers virtual/e-consults as well as face to face appointments for its patients in North Central London.

The practice has a large team of GP's, nurses, physios, specialist consultants, dieticians and pharmacists and are looking for Physician Associates to join their team. The practice uses EMIS and undertakes the majority of its appointments virtually via a specialist platform. Virtual work doesn't not necessarily mean remote, that clinicians can't be based on site.
