About us

We’re a small group of close-knit surgeries in South East London on a mission to deliver the best healthcare to our patients. We use a multidisciplinary approach – bringing together GPs, Nurses, HCAs, Pharmacists, Paramedics and Mental Health Nurses to deliver an efficient and effective service with strong outcomes for patients.

With high levels of patient satisfaction (> 4* on Google at all our sites) and low waiting times, we’ve been able to grow to almost 50,000 patients and we continue to grow at a rapid pace.

We serve our patients across 7 CQC ‘Good’ rated sites in Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham, with each site having its own dedicated multidisciplinary team. You’ll join one of these site-based teams but you’ll be part of the larger Penrose Health family as well!

As part of Team Penrose, you will be covered by our Vitality Private Health Insurance, you’ll have the choice of a NOW or NHS pension and you’ll benefit from a comprehensive sick pay scheme after your first year with us. We also pay your professional indemnity and you’ll have the opportunity for funded professional development in the future.

On top of the employment benefits, we love our teambuilding and resilience activities. Last year we saw a month dedicated to appreciating our team members, offered art on line classes, enjoyed ice cream from a visiting ice cream van, enjoyed surprise gifts, thank you self-care bags, fresh fruit deliveries, hosted a group-wide bake-off and Halloween fun! This year we’ll be running a year-long Penrose Cup tournament with challenges, surprises and prizes! These are just some (but not all) of the things we do to make this a great place to work! Underneath all of this, you will also find a core strength and camaraderie that exists in each of our surgery teams and across the group – we really are a family.

All our team are enthusiastic, friendly and we want to make a real difference to our patients – come and be a part of the team!
