Salary £36-£40,000/year depending on experience
Darwin Medical Practice in Lichfield and Burntwood, which was established in 2017 with the merger of The Spires Practice and Fulfen Practice, is a friendly forward-thinking 6 partner practice in which we all take great pride in the excellence of patient care we provide.
The practice looks after circa 17,000 patients from 3 sites with the largest site at Hudson Drive, Burntwood; and branch sites with administration offices at St Chad’s Health Centre in Lichfield and in Chase Town, Burntwood. There are advanced (and exciting!) plans for a new health centre for the practice to be built mid 2019 onwards in Burntwood.
We employ approximately 40 staff members. Enhancing the care we provide, the team includes ANPs, practice pharmacists and a physician’s assistant, and an excellent nursing team with further support provided by our dedicated and skilled administration and reception teams.
Following a reorganisation of our management structure, there is now an exciting opportunity for a business manager to join us and become responsible, supported by the further management team and the partners, for the smooth and efficient running of all non-medical aspects of the practice.
The post will be full time over five days a week, and based at the Hudson Drive surgery, with the requirement to attend other sites as needed. The post holder will need to be flexible and will attend meetings outside of work hours as required.
We are looking for a dynamic and motivated manager with strong organisational, interpersonal and business skills. Experience in a health care setting is desirable but not essential. The person appointed will be appropriately qualified and have proven skills and experience particularly in leading a team and will take a lead on business development, CQC, IT governance, health and safety and operational delivery. They will be able to drive improvement in service delivery and create a positive environment for delivering patient care and for staff to work in.
