Salaried GPs

Salaried GP Foundation Programme

Supporting new GPs into Primary Care

Nexus Health Group have launched a programme for newly qualified GPs (who have completed their VTS within the last 3 years). The aim of this is to support their first step into primary care on completion of your CTC and to help develop future leaders and clinical influencers within primary care.

Many of our current GP partners spent time as trainee doctors at some of our sites and we recognise the importance of a supported transition from training to a salaried role within General Practice.

About us
Nexus Health Group was founded in 2016 with the coming together of a number of long established, like minded NHS GP practices. We are a well-recognised training organisation (for GP’s and allied health professionals) serving a diverse list of approximately 77,000 patients from nine practice sites all in North Southwark across a single practice list. Our GP sites are made up of established multidisciplinary teams of GPs, Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs), Paramedics, Physicians Associates, Nurses, Pharmacists, Health Care Assistants (HCAs) and local administration teams. We are focused on the development of our workforce.

Our organisation is led by our GP partners, and Senior Management Team. Sites are supported by Clinical Governance Leads, and centralised back office functions providing Human Resources, Finance, Administration and IT support.

The programme
We have designed this programme specifically for newly qualified GPs within 3 years of completing their GP training to join one of our site based teams at Nexus on a salaried basis.

We are offering successful Salaried GP candidates a salary of £11,660 per session per annum, a pro rata weekly session for CPD, 6 weeks annual leave pro rata, and 1 week study leave pro rata. In addition to this the programme offers:

  • The offer of a flexible working week
  • A mentor from the Nexus GP partnership
  • Quarterly peer support meetings
  • Access to monthly Nexus wide educational meetings
  • Access to training budget (by application)
  • Access to monthly protected learning session with whole Nexus team
  • Involvement and participation in Nexus wide transformation projects and other workstreams
  • Shadowing in specialised clinics within the hospital setting or with community based specialist services

Swiftqueue (book your own blood test)

Swiftqueue


From the 24th August 2023 patients will be able to book blood tests online using swiftqueue. A short video explaining the service is available here.

Swiftqueue allows patients to see live appointment availability and make a booking at a convenient time and location of their choice. This will improve patient flow, minimise wait times and reduce overcrowding. Patients are also able to cancel and reschedule appointments online.

To register follow the link or scan the QRcode at the bottom of your blood test form. For more information about creating an account, booking or cancelling and appointment please view the Swiftqueue patient user guide.


FAQs

What does Swiftqueue do?

Swiftqueue is an online booking system that allows patients to book their own blood tests at a convenient time and date. Patients can also view, reschedule and cancel their appointments online.

When will Swiftqueue go-live?

We are working closely with our partners and supplier to go-live with Swiftqueue on Monday 24 July.

Why is it changing?

Swiftqueue will enable a more efficient, patient-centred phlebotomy process. It is a reliable and established booking platform that is already successful in a range of NHS hospitals and clinics. We are introducing the online booking system to improve patient experience.

Why is it better than the current system?

The booking system will help phlebotomy hubs manage the patient flow which will result in minimised wait times for patients and reduced overcrowding.

How will this change affect patients?

Patients will be required to book their blood tests online using Swiftqueue. They can do this online, using their mobile device, computer or by using the kiosks located in phlebotomy clinic waiting areas. Patients under 16 can be added to a family member or guardians Swiftqueue account. Once added, an appointment can be made on behalf of the child.

What if a patient isn't confident with digital technology?

You can make an appointment on behalf of someone else by adding them to your Swiftqueue account. Our friendly phlebotomy team are also on hand to support you in making an appointment or you can use a kiosk which is available in the waiting areas at phlebotomy clinics. A limited walk-in service will be maintained for those who are unable to book online.

Will walk in appointments still be available?

A limited walk-in service will be maintained for those who are unable to book online. Walk in patients will be given an appointment time for that day where available or be supported to book an appointment for another day.

Can I cancel or change a Swiftqueue booking?

Yes, Swiftqueue allows patients to view, reschedule or cancel appointments online. View and manage your appointments by logging in to your account online and clicking My Appointments.

What if a blood test is urgent?

Swiftqueue will  hold a number of urgent slots each day for patients who need to be bled urgently. Your GP should mark your blood test form as urgent by writing urgent or same day on the form. If your GP hand writes this, please ensure it is validated with your practice’s stamp or your GP’s signature. When making your appointment online you will be prompted to answer if the test is urgent or routine. Select urgent and complete the rest of the booking process.
