GP Pool

Come and be a sessional GP in Somerset! Join our brand-new GP flexible pool.  Whether you have retired and would like the odd session or you are a newly qualified GP, wanting to work in a practice environment before deciding on your final  workplace, we have an opportunity for you.


100Fold CIC is a newly established Community Interest Company set up by 3 Somerset Clinical Directors.  We intend to be a key delivery partner in system wide projects that benefit Primary Care and the people of Somerset.   One of the priorities of 100Fold CIC is to create a flexible pool of GPs to support local practices.

What is a GP Flexible Pool?

Funding has been made available for the realisation and management of GP pools to engage and deploy local GPs flexibly in an ongoing way, to support local primary care, including PCN extended access services.  It is expected that practices and PCNs will benefit from reduced burden in accessing temporary staff, and potential to build better relationships with pool members.

GPs supported through the pool arrangement would have access to the flexibility of a locuming role, with the additional benefits of a salaried position.

The vision for 2021/22 is for the flexible staff pools to be developed into a mechanism that acts as a local point of contact, offering support and advice to the GP workforce more widely through robust engagement, particularly for doctors returning to general practice such as those on a career break or parental/adoption leave.
