Why not make 2024 a year to make a real difference?

Come and join a team committed to improving the health of their local community by embracing innovation and harnessing effective team work. We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and talented Practice Manager to join our friendly and dedicated team delivering high quality healthcare while putting the buzz back into General Practice. 


We are a thriving semi-rural PMS Practice of 9500 patients and have a multi-disciplinary team including a Finance Manager, a PA to Management Team & HR/Training Assistant and a Data Management/Operations Lead. We are both forward thinking but also more importantly “forward acting”. Our motivated team made us the most Covid vaccinated Practice in England…..

We have 6 sessions a week of our directly employed Senior Mental Health Nurse plus whatever the local Mental Health Trust provides. We have a Nurse Consultant and ANP’s specialising in women’s health and dermatology including dermatoscopy.


The Practice ethos is better defined here: 


We are working on building a One Stop Shop for a three acre site which already has a Project Initiation Document approved by NHSE plus historic full planning consent for an NHS Nursery, Cafe, Social Care Hub, Out of Hours, Ambulance and a Training and Education Centre. We are currently at the Outline Business Case Stage. We won a Government grant for the first ever NHS Nursery outside a hospital 15 years ago. PCT financial collapse meant the project was axed but now we are making solid progress on the Primary Care element.


Main duties of the job 


The core duties of this role are to manage and co-ordinate all aspects of the Practice’s day-to-day business. This is to be achieved by motivating and managing staff, optimising efficiency and financial performance, complying with policies and procedures while ensuring the Practice achieves its long-term strategic goals. 


The post holder will work closely with the three Partners and PCN Clinical Directors and will be responsible for ensuring the Practice meets its agreed aims and objectives. There will be a requirement to provide operational support and guidance to the Partners in areas such as planning, income and expenditure, human resources, patient service delivery, information technology, clinical governance, quality and performance management, Health and Safety, and CQC compliance. 

The post holder will also be responsible for providing day to day operational support and guidance to the Practice Team. The Manager will be required to support and encourage the training and development of all staff and ensure excellent team working through a team-focused and inclusive approach.
