New GPs and Healthcare Staff Recruited at Kersiebank Medical Practice

Three additional GPs have joined the team at Kersiebank Medical Practice in Grangemouth to support the existing locum and salaried doctors. They have been joined by three new advanced nurse practitioners and additional pharmacy staff who are working alongside the existing ANPs, mental health nurses, physiotherapists and pharmacy staff currently based at the Practice.

The successful appointments follow a recruitment drive by NHS Forth Valley who took over responsibility for managing Kersiebank Medical Practice in 2015.

Dr Stuart Cumming, Associate Medical Director for Primary Care in NHS Forth Valley, said: “We have been working very hard to increase the capacity of our current Practice team and have managed to successfully recruit a number of GPs and other healthcare professionals. This is significant progress given the current difficulties in recruiting GPs across the UK.

“It will also help us build on the multidisciplinary workforce already in place at the Practice and ensure local patients have access to a wider range of services and support.”
