Why work in Suffolk?

With sunshine higher than the national average, low crime rates, relatively inexpensive property and good health – Suffolk is a great place to live and work. With its growing economy and the ripple effect of Cambridge and Felixstowe, Suffolk has the highest standard of living of Britain’s 114 rural local authorities.

The beautiful coastline and countryside of Suffolk has attracted people for hundreds of years who have been entranced by the gorgeous beaches, big skies, picture postcard villages and stunning heritage towns and cities. Geographically, Suffolk could not be better placed. A short train ride and you’re in central London: an even shorter drive and you’re at the beach.

Why work for Suffolk Primary Care?

Suffolk Primary Care offers a range of opportunities to develop your career. With 11 member practices we offer a variety of challenges, from town based practices to more rural locations.

We offer a full induction and development programme for all staff and actively look to provide leadership and mentoring schemes. We believe that to get the best from our people we need to support a healthy work life/balance and provide a range of development opportunities as well as reward and benefit schemes.

The rationale behind Suffolk Primary Care is to build on the values of traditional primary care but in a new structure that protects GPs and patient care well into the future. Patients and staff really value general practice based in the community, with local GPs leading and working in their local surgeries providing long-term, continuity of care. It’s what we want and it’s what patients want.
