Careers in General Practice in Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucestershire
Wellspring Surgery in Barton Hill, Bristol, is looking for a part-time business manager for 16-20 hours a week. The post would suit someone wanting to work part-time but also current GP practice managers who have the flexibility and interest to work across more than one site. We are flexible employers and would be prepared to consider various patterns of work and the job would require a degree of flexibility from the successful candidate. We are located very close to all transport routes.
We are looking for a bright, innovative and pro-active leader who can take us through ongoing local and national changes in the NHS. You must be a strategic thinker, IT literate, financially astute, and have excellent organisational skills. You will be supported by an excellent administrative and clinical team, including an operations manager and 3 GP partners.
Previous management experience and leadership skills are essential, preferably in a health care environment.
The Wellspring Surgery has 8,600 patients, 3 GP partners, 4 salaried doctors, an experienced nursing team, an operations manager, finance administrator and a pharmacist, all of whom are ably supported by our admin and reception team. We are very proud of the friendliness and effectiveness of our team. We have a long experience of teaching and training.
We are forward thinking and are looking to collaborate increasingly, at both very local and CCG level, with other GP practices and would be looking to you to drive this forwards.
Barton Hill is one of the most ethnically diverse communities in the UK. It is a fascinating place to work. The Surgery has a special and unique character, housed as we are in the beautiful Wellspring Healthy Living Centre (WHLC). The WHLC was founded as a charity in 2004 to address health inequalities in Bristol inner city and east areas. Local residents decided on priorities and the purpose-built premises were built to house community rooms, a small courtyard garden, as well as our NHS GP surgery. Our working lives have been massively enhanced by the fact that we can use “social prescribing”, such as “kitchen on prescription”, art, exercise and social support to help our patients and we work closely with the WHLC, although are separate organisations.
We welcome your application, as well as informal telephone calls or visits to the practice.
