Three Rivers District Council

Opportunity for a General Practice in the South East to boost their income

Eight local authorities in Hertfordshire are looking for a group of GPs to assist them in prioritising housing applications due to a medical condition. An opinion is sometimes also sought on vulnerability if an applicant is homeless.

Approximately 250 medical applications are assessed each month across the eight local authorities. Most forms are assessed on a regular day each month although some are sent individually.

Experience of occupational health would be of benefit as it is important to have an understanding whether an applicant’s medical condition would significantly improve or be alleviated by a move to more suitable accommodation.

We are looking to appoint from May 2014 when the current GP retires. If you are interested in this role, please email: by 10th March 2014 advising when you are available for an informal discussion.
