Job Vacancies / Working For Downend Health Group


At Downend Health Group, our team and their wellbeing are some of our key priorities. The organisation has grown from humble beginnings with a skeleton staff, to a workforce of over 100 employees, providing services from two modern, purpose-built surgeries. The Partners strive to provide a supportive and nurturing environment for all staff to flourish. We offer a comprehensive induction programme with appropriate training to help new staff understand how the practice and primary care work. As a progressive employer, there are opportunities for staff to progress in their career and for clinical staff to specialise in certain fields. Clinical staff are supported by an experienced Mentor, with regular opportunities for discussion and problem solving in clinical meetings, and within the clinical hub. The Clinical Hub is a communal, working environment for GP’s, providing time and space to complete paperwork, follow up on patient care, have discussions with peers and offer advice to other teams. 

We are here to look after you as much as we are able. We have a range of policies to help staff from a Menopause Policy to resources on Mental Wellbeing. We also understand that flexibility is key to a successful work- life balance, especially for parents with young children or those who may be caring for another. Where possible, we offer flexibility in working patterns to accommodate your needs. 

Downend Health Group know that all work and no play isn’t great for anyone, and it is important to socialise with our teams away from the workplace. We hold summer and Christmas social gatherings, fortnightly lunchtime walks and intermittently run schemes including ‘bring & share’ lunches. We run sweepstakes on sporting events and a monthly reward scheme that recognises employees who have gone the extra mile. We value you and your commitment to the practice and like to recognise this with small tokens of appreciation. 

Downend Health Group is driven to provide the best possible care to our patients; however, we also care about our environment and are doing all we can to become an environmentally friendly practice. As part of our green initiative, we have introduced several new schemes including low carbon prescribing, the Bike 2 Work Scheme which provides employees a great opportunity to own a bike and cycle to work, and supporting patient health and wellbeing with nature-based interventions. 

Our recruitment process is fast and friendly, at interview we offer a relaxed approach which we think is the best environment for you to learn a little about us and where we can get to know you. We won’t keep you waiting long on our decision either and will respond to you as quickly as possible with our feedback comments. We welcome applications for our non-clinical roles no matter what your career background. Our workforce team is built around common goals and values, and empathy and patience are key attributes, we also value your life skills which we believe are transferable to our workplace. We appreciate the wisdom of our teams, and staff ideas are embraced and change for the better welcomed.
