Recruiting Consultant, Bredbury Medical Centre, Stockport

How would you feel about working in a practice with a lovely, family feel at an exciting time of change and development? If you have great people management skills, can manage a business, and would like to be instrumental in new developments then this could be the opportunity for you.

Working with 2 GP partners, you will be managing the day-to-day aspects of the business as well as being aware of the strategic changes for general practice and the NHS and have the ability to forward plan within the practices’ vision.

This is a growing practice that currently looks after c.4,500 patients with a growing list size. We are becoming stronger as a training practice already supporting medical students and GP registrars with the aim to include nurses and physicians’ associates.
One of the GP Partners was a registrar at this practice evidencing the warmth and family feel making this practice attractive for him to become a partner. There is lots of opportunity to focus on the future requirements of the growing population and ensure that estates and workforce are in place to meet those needs.

The successful post holder will proactively lead the practice ensuring that we continue to deliver high standards of care and team working in a changing time within the NHS and primary care. Your passion for patient services and supporting the team must match ours, and we expect you to have a good insight into IT, finance, and premises along with the strategic vision to manage growth
You will be responsible for service improvement and delivery of key targets across the full range of clinical and administrative areas within the practice. You need to be organised and be able to build excellent working relationships using your excellent interpersonal skills.
Collaborating with the Partners, you will be responsible for the ongoing development of the team and key services. You will also have the vision, willingness, and drive to adapt and lead the practice in the new ways of working of Primary Care Networks and Integrated Care systems.

The successful candidate will be an experienced manager and have a natural curiosity in processes and people. This role is ideal for someone who has ideas about how changes can be made in a collaborative way based on learnt experience, QI methodology or good practice. You will be interested in estates development and organisational design to help the practice move forward with the growing patient numbers.

This is a key role, with an established team, and it essential that you demonstrate good leadership qualities, with the ability to achieve goals and targets using a combination of personal involvement, motivation of other staff and delegation when appropriate.

The partners also require the successful candidate to be proactive and plan for the future with a visionary, growth mindset, maximising the practice’s potential in relation to business and finance opportunities, whilst maintaining patient care. The candidate needs to ensure they keep themselves fully informed of local and national proposals and initiatives, and in turn translate that into proposed changes to the partners.

An understanding of current NHS initiatives will be helpful; however, primary care is changing substantially and the introduction of new ideas and methods from outside of the NHS presents as an attractive proposition to the partners. In addition to adapting the practice to meet the demands of providing high quality patient care, the manager will need to ensure that the practice is financially efficient and compliant with all aspects of health and safety, employment legislation and CQC (Care Quality Commission) registration/compliance.

The opportunity for further personal development will be given in order to develop skills in line with practice needs.

References will be requested along with an enhanced DBS check.
You must provide details of your experience, knowledge, and skills in the following areas:

• Managing finances
• Strategy and Vision – experience of digital and patient improvement
• Patient feedback
• Governance and regulations
