A new video and booklet has been launched to highlight the benefits of working within General Practice.
Generally regarded as the front line of the NHS, a career in General Practice can be extremely rewarding for anyone who is passionate about making a real difference.
To help promote a career in General Practice in Essex, a new booklet and video aims to help answer any questions anyone might have. You will not only find out more about the wide range of clinical and non-clinical career opportunities in General Practice, but will also learn about all the benefits that make Essex such a great place to work.
There are many different opportunities with a vast array of different responsibilities and skills which will add to personal growth and professional experience. Roles vary from clinical positions like GPs, pharmacists, nurses, and physicians to roles which help with the smooth operation of the practice such as practice managers, receptionists and apprenticeships.
The booklet and video were produced by Health Education East of England who is leading a national drive to increase the number of primary care staff across the country.Click on the link below to view the booklet.
The General Practice in Essex video introduces clinicians and office workers who work and live in Essex as they describe the benefits of a variety of roles. You can hear from GPs, practice managers, pharmacists, and practice nurses about what their jobs entail. Watch the video below.
The General Practice in Essex booklet sets out what careers are available and also goes into more detail on what the roles involve, their benefits and the personal qualities that best suit them. Each role is accompanied by a personal account from someone currently working in Essex, including what they do, what they like about their job, and how they got into General Practice.
Thurrock CCG’s own Dr Vaiyapuri Raja (GP) and Julia Riley (Practice Nurse) give their views in both the video and brochure above.
