Salaried GP, Hope Citadel Healthcare, Oldham

Clinical leads
We are looking for two clinical leads to work together with the practice manager. Alongside your
clinical work, you will have a protected session a week to focus on either a quality improvement area, or PCN integration and development. You will work with the practice manager throughout the year to ensure good systems for QOF and other target areas. You can also choose to be involved in mentoring other GPs, as well as other members of the clinical team. We have a weekly management meeting on top of the weekly clinical meeting. You will also join the clinical lead group from across the company that meets bi-monthly, which is a mix of group supervision, planning and implementing schemes on a larger scale, and sharing learning. You will not need to have responsibility for the budget or for management of staff.

GPs with special interest
With 11,000 patients who haven’t always experienced the best care under previous healthcare
providers, we want to create systems that notice the most vulnerable and invisible patients and
make them our priority. We are therefore looking for GPs that, alongside some ‘normal’ clinical
work, are also interested in developing work in a specific disease area, such as diabetes, mental
health, or women’s health. We will protect admin and clinic time in your week to help you focus on these patients. If you are at the stage of your career where you need some time to develop these skills, we can offer you an internal fellowship which will give you a session a week protected for learning and trying new things out. We are also specifically looking for GPs who are either already trainers or who would like to become trainers, so that we can become a training practice to shape future generations of like minded GPs.

First 3s
Out of our 40 GPs at Hope Citadel, about a third are in their first 3 years post-CCT. We love working with newly qualified GPs, helping them explore the challenges of working in areas of deprivation in a way that feels safe, interesting, fulfilling, and supportive. All our First 3s across the company have a monthly peer group session with topics ranging from pensions to handling complaints and many other topics in between.
They all have access to the internal 1-1 mentoring scheme with a more established GP, as well as help to access other national and local fellowship schemes. They will join in the weekly clinical meetings at the practice where there will be space for case discussion as well as bringing ideas or queries.
