Geographical location of the surgery
The surgery is located in Lisle, in the Dordogne department of SW France in the Aquitaine region. The town is 20 minutes NW of the departmental capital Périgueux. Lisle is a very dynamic commune with more than 900 habitants. Set in a rural situation but with a large patient base covering a radius of approximately 15 kilometres.

The senior school is 7kms away in the neighbouring town. The nearest train station is 20kms away, as is the nearest motorway junction (A89 Bordeaux to Lyon).
The reason for the advertisement
The association of the health professionals PSLP (Pôle de Santé Pluridisciplinaire de Lisle 24350) supported by members of the town council are looking to replace 1 or 2 general practitioners to take over the patient list of the 2 incumbent doctors (a married couple). They are ceasing their activity for family reasons and are offering their patient list to their successor(s) without any financial payment.
Medical and paramedical services in the proximity
In the commune there are currently 2 general practitioners, 3 nurses, 5 physiotherapists and 3 dentists. There are also 3 podiatrists and 1 psychomotrice who are awaiting construction of the new health centre. There is also a pharmacy and a private ambulance service. All specialist consultants are within a 20km radius and at the general hospital and at 2 private clinics. There are 5 retirement/care homes within 15kms and 3 convalescence homes within the same radius.
A new health centre is in the final stages before construction and will be ready to open in 2018. The new doctor(s) will have at their disposition an up-to-date workplace conforming to the latest norms (accessibility for the handicapped etc).
The current housing situation would allow candidate(s) to easily find accommodation nearby. The Mairie (town council) would assist in finding accommodation for the doctor(s) and their family.
Male or female candidates may apply, or a couple.
