Further Opportunities & Career Development:
Who are we?
The First 4 Health Group currently serves over 37,000 patients across 4 sites in the London Borough of Newham. The current sites we operate from are; Church Road Health (CRH), Cumberland Medical Centre (CMC), Stratford Village Surgery (SVS) & E7 Health (E7H). This gives us the resilience of a larger organisation but we are still small enough for all of our GPs and staff to feel cared for and valued. The health and wellbeing of all our staff and GPs is really important to us and that we cultivate a learning and developmental culture. We are an inclusive, patient focused organisation that works collaboratively and focuses on the support, growth and development of all of our teams. Our organisational developmental attitude is reflected in our CQC ratings - Outstanding in the Well-Lead category at Church Road Health.
Two of our larger practices within the First 4 Health Group (CRH and SVS) are training practices, and E7 Health is due to become a training practice in the near future. We are actively involved with the CCG, ICS, our local federation and 3 Primary Care Networks.
We are continually trying to improve patient services and access and try new ways of doing things. We have previously been ranked as a 'Healthcare 100' Employer by HSJ. We are delighted to announce that our work with Healthtech 1 has been shortlisted for GP Provider of the Year award at the #HSJAwards 2021.
We are committed to ensuring that all patients receive the best possible care and reducing health inequalities. This is also reflected in our CQC Outstanding rating in our care of Vulnerable Patients at Church Road Health.
We are really looking for a motivated and caring GP to join us in our group of GP Practices based in Newham.
Our team is composed of highly trained Patient and Digital Care Navigators, Healthcare Assistants, Nurse Associates, Practice Nurses, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Paramedic, Physcian Associates, Social Prescribers, Health & Wellbeing Coaches, & Clinical Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technicians, all of whom support our GPs by minimising paperwork including prescriptions and filtering documents which means that our GP’s have more time to treat patients.
We have excellent clinical teams all of our sites who meet on a weekly basis at regular clinical and non-clinical team meetings to manage and continually improve our patient care.
How do we work?
We use EMIS workflow and other paperless document management and remote access systems to support the flexible working of our clinical teams. We fully support our clinicians to work from home on selected days - providing Organisation Laptop’s with all the necessary software installed and Emis access dongles to support remote working.
All of the sites operate as independent units, however, we work closely together to facilitate the efficient management of the group practice by using standard IT, Training and Clinical policies and procedures.
Although most staff are mainly based at one location we are able to use EMIS Web and our own internal GP practice management system - OneRoom across all of our sites to facilitate the provision of excellent healthcare to our patients and support our staff across all 4 sites.
We also offer to provide Business Parking permits if you use your own vehicle to drive into work and work across sites for more than 3 days a week.
Your Development Opportunities
We are an organisation committed to supporting all of its staff to engage fully with the varied career development opportunities available in General Practice today and in the future to fully develop your potential.

We offer Clinicians the opportunity to use specialist skills (GPwSI) like Minor Surgery, Gynaecology, Dermatology and MSK clinics in local community clinic providers - Patient First Social Enterprise.
We can also fully support you to take on education fellowships, leadership and QI training and are happy to discuss other developmental opportunities that you may be interested in.

We have an internal First4HealthGroup fellowship scheme to support GPs who have qualified more than 2 years ago where we support your career and aspirations through funded time/bursary.
