Salary: £50,000 – £55,000 per annum depending upon experience

Due to the relocation of our existing Practice Manager, we have an exciting opportunity for an accomplished and highly motivated Practice Manager to join our team at Birchwood Surgery.  Candidates must be conscientious, provide solid leadership and will ideally have a sound knowledge of strategic business management, GP Practice finance, planning and HR.

Birchwood Surgery serves a patient list size of approximately 12,000 patients under a GMS Contract from modern purpose-build premises just a few minutes’ walk from Letchworth town centre.  We are an experienced clinical team of GPs, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, General Practice Nurses, Healthcare Assistants, Clinical Pharmacists, a Pharmacy Technician and Physiotherapist, and have an experienced team of Administrative, Reception and Medical Secretarial staff.  The post is also supported by a Deputy Practice Manager, a Front of House Manager, a recently appointed Operations Manager working in premises, compliance, IT and HR and a Strategic Business Manager dealing with the Practice finances.

We adopt a team approach to patient care in a caring and compassionate environment to ensure the highest level of care and service to our patients.  You will be required to work collaboratively with our PCN Colleagues, stakeholders and local commissioners and keep up to date with the changes in primary care.

The postholder will work closely with the Directors and Lead GP and will be responsible for ensuring the Practice meets its agreed aims and objectives.  You will be required to provide operational support and guidance to the Directors and Lead GP 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 postholder will also be responsible for providing day-to-day operational support and guidance to the Practice team.  With a team-focused and inclusive approach, you will be required to support and encourage the training and development of all staff and ensure excellent team-working.

If you also have the experience, willingness, vision and drive to lead the Practice in new ways of collaborative working with Primary Care Networks and Integrated Care Systems, we would be delighted to hear from you.

A clear, enhanced DBS check is a requirement for this post as are appropriate references.  The successful applicant will be expected to meet the English language fluency requirements as outlined in the Immigration Act 2016.
