How we are supporting General Practice

Supporting the General Practice industry in an every changing market

By Kirsty Morris

Menlo Park have 7 years’ experience working in the ever-changing and ever challenging Primary Care industry. In the space of just 2 years we have seen the recruitment market tip from being GP-short, to locum GPs finding themselves out of work during the lock down, and then back again to being GP short in the current day.

A testing time for practices, with 64% more Salaried GP vacancies advertised in the current day compared to the same period last year, the need for Salaried GPs in the UK has never been greater. Patient demand is still high, practices are still recovering from the pandemic and they are trying to decipher what the ‘new-norm’ looks like.

Menlo Park is here to support practices in improving much needed stability in permanent clinical teams, and in turn, improving continuity of care. All of this, whilst saving practices money compared to the alternative non-permanent solutions.

Recruitment agencies are often seen as a necessary evil, however Menlo Park have a different approach, in that we partner with our Practices, learn what makes them tick and select GPs who will likely fit – for the long term.

We are here to support YOU, the practice, and here are just 3 ways we support our clients:

Saving money in Primary Care

First and foremost – we are here to save you money, to the tone of between £16,000 and £30,000 in the first year and between £28,000 and £40,000 in the second year, appointing Salaried GPs compared to appointing locum GPs, with like-for-like numbers of sessions. These figures, surprisingly include all employment costs and agency fee!

Balancing the books is increasingly important, which is why we offer a cost effective solution to our clients – that’s reassuring.


Permanent Primary Care GP and Clinician Recruitment

Menlo Park was founded with quality, long term permanent placements in mind, and as such we are the ONLY Salaried consultancy operating in the Primary Care field. I am preaching to the converted when I say, seeing the same GP is of course, synonymous with better patient outcomes and happier patients, not to mention a more supportive environment for employees with better learning opportunities and higher levels of wellbeing. I could go on…… but the point is the Salaried GP and Permanent Clinician model was of close consideration when Menlo Park was founded. Everything we do is with the long-term in mind – no cutting corners, no guess-work, just clear, transparent detail – how refreshing.

Market knowledge

We offer continuous advice on what is happening in the market – the typical norms, statistics to give context and market knowledge. We work in a quickly changing playing field and we have our ear to the ground on what’s happening. We speak to GPs and Practices every day of the working week, we survey, attend industry conferences and keep abreast of relevant industry news.

We take as much of the guess work out of decision making when you are appointing a Salaried GP or Permanent Clinician – phew!
