About The Role

Calling All GPs
Practice Plus Group, along with other independent providers of healthcare services are working with the NHS in a collective effort to combat the crisis posed by COVID-19.

In our collective response to COVID-19 Practice Plus Group, we are seeking applications from self-employed GPs to respond to increased demand in calls to our Out-of-Hours services.

Practice Plus Group is the largest provider of unscheduled care services in the UK and we proudly continue to lead the way with innovation in line with the vision of the NHS.
