Zoë Davis, Southend Medical Centre talks primary care recruitment

12th August 2022


The most recent headlines regarding NHS recruitment have not been positive, but we know that there are excellent places to work in primary care that we need to shout about!

Primary Care Careers have been assisting in the recruitment campaign at Southend Medical Practice and invited Practice Manager Zoë Davis to give us a more personal insight into the Practice:


We are a small friendly, compassionate caring team who work to exceed our patients’ expectations. We work together to create a “work-family” who support each other, we spend longer with each other than some of our family which is why we feel it is important to come to work and enjoy working with your colleagues. Why not come and be part of our team?

We have to say a sad goodbye to our Medical Secretary who is moving up North! This will create a desirable vacancy with us at Southend Medical Centre. The role is full time Monday to Friday, will be 37.5 hours and the salary is negotiable for the right candidate.


We also had to say a sad goodbye to our Medical Administrator who is moving on to a career in Nursing. She loved working here so much she is coming back as a nurse once she qualified! This vacancy is as a Medical Administrator with some reception cover, this is ideal for a qualified receptionist that would like to move away from reception and develop within the role to learn more about general practice, including registrations, deductions, records movement, workflow and correspondence. This will include referrals and some secretarial which we will train you up for. The role can be full time or part time and hours can be negotiable for a suitable candidate.



At Primary Care Careers we realise the importance of developing strong relationships and understanding of the way our GP practices operate. The team in a surgery is made up of incredible individuals who carry out every vital and varied role daily.
