Theatre Royal Surgery (Dereham, Norfolk)


The Theatre Royal Surgery is offering a rare opportunity for interested GPs to invest in a practice partnership, allowing them to have a real stake in the development and future of this rural centre.

The small and committed team are keen to hear from like-minded doctors keen to help them develop the practice and also those who are interested in long-term career progression.

As a specialised training practice, the team works closely with local universities – one GP is an honorary lecturer – and hosts regular placements as well as offering opportunities for in house training.


New recruits all undergo a thorough induction process to help settle them in and hours and days can be negotiated to suit. Full and part time options are available, as are flexible shifts with the added bonus of no out of hours provision being required.

The team are described as being friendly and welcoming as well as full of ideas and innovations planned for the future of Theatre Royal – so new GPs with energy and enthusiasm are encouraged to apply.


GPs looking for a long-term commitment will be particularly interested in a role with Theatre Royal as there are great business opportunities linked to a position here.

The practice is a diverse environment and welcomes any applicants who will appreciate the country lifestyle on offer, while still being within 20 miles of Norwich and the airport.

A role here would be both varied and interesting with a real opportunity to shape the future of this forward-thinking practice.
