Hurley GP Partnership

We wish to appoint new partners to join us in leading one of the most exciting NHS GP partnerships in the UK. The Hurley Group is a well-established NHS partnership. We have not just survived every storm over the last few decades, but thrived, as you will if you join us.

Being a Hurley Partner means being a leader in a high profile organisation often held up as an exemplar of general practice nationally. You will be networking with senior leaders within the NHS and have a chance to have significant impact in service development. This is both rewarding and challenging in equal measure.

Since 2004 the Hurley Group has expanded across London to deliver care from traditional GP practices, walk-in clinics, urgent care centres and a specialist service to doctors and dentists with mental health problems (

The Hurley Group never stands still and even given all the current problems within general practice we feel there has never been a better time to be a GP. This might require a change of direction, exploring new avenues for service delivery (such as the online consulting tool ) or expanding to other areas of care. You can help us decide as it will depend on who is willing to take the challenge and become part of our team.

A partnership at the Hurley is exhilarating, varied, challenging, constantly rewarding and sometimes tough. You will be a clinician, manager, colleague, mentor and above all, a leader.

Within this recruitment we are looking specifically at

  • At least one GP who can help develop our training and teaching portfolio and help consolidate good clinical care within our lead practices. This would involve taking clinical and leadership responsibility for at least one site within our portfolio for a period to ensure stability.
  • A GP who wants to have an open portfolio and help us innovate across our practices.
  • A GP to work with Dr Clare Gerada on the world leading, Practitioner Health Programme. This person would become her apprentice with a view to taking over the reins of the service over the next five years. This person must have expertise in mental health/psychiatry with at least 12 months experience (6 months in specialist setting and 6 months either within a specialist setting or community or GP with Special Clinical Interest).

You need: to be a clinician, flexible, have a good sense of humor, possess a good work ethic, not mind “getting your hands dirty” and be prepared to travel (within the M25, at least!). You will also need to join our GP on-call rota to cover critical gaps. This includes night time and weekend work where required.
