A Salaried GP works under contract to a practice and is paid a salary for the execution of their duties within specified contracted hours. It is often the first step for a newly qualified GP and would normally mean that you work under the direction of employing GP Partners within a practice.
There are some pros and cons to being a Salaried GP versus other roles. You might find these links helpful as you think about what route to take:
If you are already a Salaried GP, you’ve made the first step into full time General Practice so what options are there available to you now as your career develops?
You might be more interested in having a greater control in the running of the practice as a GP Partner, or you might prefer to work particular hours in which case, working as an Out of Hours GP may interest you. Or you may wish to undertake some GP locum work for other practices to supplement your existing work.
Alternatively, you may want to remain as a Salaried GP but explore other enhanced career opportunities from educational/academic roles, other clinical roles, leadership roles to non-clinical roles such as expedition GPs.
