Who are we?
Founded in 1994 out of a local GP cooperative, London Central and West Unscheduled Care Collaborative (LCW) has evolved into one of London's largest and most successful providers of Integrated Urgent Care services covering a population of 3.
5 million. We pride ourselves on delivering safe, effective, responsive, caring, and well led patient centred clinical services as recognised by our Good’ CQC rating in all areas of our organisation.

Location : Various sites located in Barnet, Enfield, Haringey, Camden, Islington, Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham, Chelsea & Westminster, Ealing & Hounslow, and shortly City & Hackney.
As a result of the national strategy NHS 111 First, we are now expanding our service in order to deliver the main features of this : booking patients into ED slots and Same Day Emergency Care SDEC services and in the near future, hot clinic referrals e.
g. lower GI and cardiology referrals . These schemes need the GP skill set to provide remote assessment with access to video technology and patients’ records to ensure high quality, clinically effective referrals onto other services.
We are looking for GPs to work across the breadth of our service portfolio including Urgent Care Centres, 111 and OOHs (collectively referred to as Integrated Urgent Care services) for both in-hours and out-of-hours shifts.

What can we offer you?
Our rates of pay vary between £66.50 and £77.00 per hour depending on the time and type of shift, and whether you chose to receive NHS Pensions at 14.38%.
In addition, we have the ability to pay into Limited companies, which we understand some individuals prefer.
With the creation of the Clinical Negligence Scheme for General Practice, medical indemnity costs are at an all-time low.
Please note that support for complaints / professional representation at disciplinary hearings / regulatory bodies etc. is outside the scheme and clinicians are required to arrange cover with their defence organisation / insurer - fees for this are presumably proportionate to the number of average weekly sessions worked.
Our sessions are managed via RotaMaster there is flexibility with this in that GPs can request to do blocks of sessions e.
g. groups of nights / evenings together, either every week or alternate weeks or even 1 : 4 weeks, depending on demand for session fill.
In order to proceed, please submit your CV and we will contact you shortly.
