Welcome to Northants GP, where the standard of General Practice is high and there is a welcoming GP community which meets regularly.
The county’s two main hospitals both have excellent relationships with the local GPs. GPs in Northants have some of the most advanced Practices in the UK with extensive diagnostic facilities, which means we can cater for so much more of our patients’ needs without referral.
Our larger Practices also offer the opportunity for a Portfolio Career enabling you to diversify your skill-set and specialise in a wider range of clinical areas that interest you. We are also federating more of our practices which means each individual GP can work across practices, with a greater say in how the practice is a managed and how their own career progresses.

Whether you’re looking for an idyllic country Practice, a challenging city surgery or something in between, Northants GP has everything you could wish for.

Roles and career paths

Within General Practice there are a number of other roles and career paths, for example: Nurse Practitioner, Practice Nurse, Healthcare Assistant or Assistant Practitioner.

Nurses are an important part of delivering care in General Practice, and the increasing shift of care from hospitals to General Practice provides nurses with a really exciting career choice.

General Practice Nurses work in GP surgeries as part of the primary healthcare team, which might include healthcare assistants, pharmacists and dietitians. In larger practices, you might be one of several practice nurses sharing duties and responsibilities and in others you might be working on your own, taking on many roles.There are also a number of non-medical roles, for example: Practice Manager, Receptionist, Health records staff, Medical secretaries, Administration staff or IT.

Receptionists are very often the first person patients see so they use customer service and administration skills to welcome people to the surgery or medical centre.

Health records staff make sure that details of patients and their care are recorded and stored. They work with patients and other staff. Practice Managers manage the overall running of General Practices.
