Clinical Services Manager – 40 hours per week

Job Details

Stanton Surgery has an exciting opportunity for a Clinical Services Manager to work alongside an Operations/HR Manager and Dispensary Manager. Together the management team will oversee the smooth day-to-day running of the practice, working closely with the two GP Partners. The management team will also liaise regularly to look at ways to continually develop the practice in line with the Partners’ vision.

We are a rural dispensing and training practice located in the village of Stanton, set in the beautiful Suffolk countryside close to Bury St Edmunds. We serve a stable population of approximately 5300 patients.

We are looking for a confident and personable Manager to work alongside our clinical teams who will always strive to make a difference for the patients registered with us, and who is a team player. You will be responsible for ensuring patients are recalled for their medical care, and will constantly review clinical targets to make sure patients are called in in a timely manner for their care. You will ensure the clinical team is adequately staffed and rotas covered and adapt them as needed to deliver all aspects of clinical care to ensure targets are met and that the practice is CQC compliant. You will be able to problem solve and develop and input into new ways of working.

We are a two partner GMS practice. We offer a supportive happy environment, and last year we were approved as a GP training practice. We already have GP trainees working alongside us, and in the future we aim to host nursing students also.

We offer traditional general practice. We currently offer diabetes care, LARC and minor surgery as additional personal interests.

We have a team of three nurses, and work closely with our PCN colleagues who visit the surgery weekly, such as a Social Prescriber, Mental Health link worker, Primary Mental Health worker and Physiotherapist. We are part of Blackbourne PCN which consists of four rural practices. A Diabetes Nurse Specialist also visits monthly and holds a clinic at the practice. We have also recently recruited two Urgent Care Practitioners.

Our reception and administrative teams provide excellent support to our clinical teams.

We work in modern purpose-built premises, which have recently been extended and provide a bright and airy setting in which to work.

We are forward thinking, and always looking for new ways to do things to ensure we provide the best possible care for our patients. For example we recently installed new dispensary software, and were only the second dispensing practice in the country to utilise this software, which is normally used in pharmacies. Our clinical system is SystmOne.

We are rated GOOD across all areas by CQC.

We actively encourage informal visits to meet our friendly team.

Remuneration is dependent on experience.
