Riversdale Surgery, Prudhoe, are excited to announce the offer of Fellowship position for a GP in the first two years of their career and who is keen to help us make a difference to our local community.
We are a training practice and are passionate about equipping future GPs with the skills and experience needed to become an outstanding GP.

In return, we are looking for someone to do a minimum of six clinical sessions per week, plus the two non-clinical fellowship sessions. For that, we are offering £8,000 per session (including the two non-clinical fellowship sessions)
We have 6,000 patients, with three GPs, two practice nurses and 15 support staff housed in a modern purpose-built facility that we share with district nurses and other members of Northumbria Foundation Trusts community health team.
We are right in the heart of the Tyne valley in a small town of 12,000 people, but are only 10 miles west of Newcastle and 20 miles to Tynemouth and the north east coast, both of which can be reached on the traffic-free National Cycle Network Route 72.
The town has excellent public transport and the town’s railway station can whisk you to the MetroCentre, Hexham and Carlisle on the Tyne Valley Line and links to the East Coast Main Line at Newcastle, while Newcastle International Airport is only 10 miles away and the town has a range of fantastic restaurants and pubs and has some of the county’s best rated schools.
The position will be hosted jointly by Riversdale Surgery and the management team of the West Northumberland Primary Care Network and your fellowship will focus on delivering projects that improve primary care for our population.
You will have access to support and mentorship from both a senior GP within the practice as well as the clinical directors of the PCN and you will have access to arange of bespoke mentoring, support and training to help you develop your career in general practice.
Our colleagues at Northumberland CCG, who host Health Education Englands North of Tyne and Gateshead Primary Care Training Hub, will also link you in with the CCG’s other newly-qualified GPs and Fellows, as well as the CCG’s clinical and commissioning leads and key colleagues in our local health and social care organisations to help you find your feet in general practice.
As part of your Fellowship, there is funding available to undertake a formal diploma or certificate in clinical leadership and while the Fellowship is funded for 12 months, we have a longer term role available for a future GP colleague in the team which could be of added interest.
