Associate Professor / Professor of General Practice and Primary Care, Exeter
Closing date 1st March 2020
The College of Medicine and Health seeks to appoint an Associate Professor or Professor of General Practice and Primary Care to help lead in the next stage of the development of academic primary care, and to build on our established reputation as a national centre of excellence for primary care research and education. With 90% of patient contact in the NHS taking place in primary care, primary care is pivotal to the future development of the UK health service, as envisaged in the NHS long term plan (2019). The demand for more cost-effective and personalised medical care, led and delivered locally, requires a strong, integrated primary care sector underpinned by high quality research and education. This key appointment requires that the post holder will be a Clinical Academic with experience in the organisation and delivery of primary care, as well as currently practising in general practice, and registered on the National Performers List of NHS England.
