Medical Director Vacancy:

Are you passionate about supporting primary care at a time when the NHS has never been under such pressure?

That’s our focus at Sussex Primary Care. We are working with GPs, practice staff and patients to achieve a different kind of future for primary care. 

We are looking for a new Medical Director to join our relatively new and growing organisation that’s driven by the sole ambition of delivering excellent care to our population while looking after the people who do the caring.

Our Story:

Sussex Primary Care (SPC) manage a number of GP surgeries across Sussex. The business is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust (SCFT) and was set up to support GP practices looking for a different way of working, forming a unique and innovative partnership between GP services and NHS Community Services.

We are approached by the practices for varying reasons but usually succession planning, we undertake a full review of the practice and if deemed feasible we will offer to take on the GMS contract and employ all staff under SPC, including the GP partners who become SPC employees. We then in partnership with the practice staff run the practice.

We’re all about providing the best possible care to our patients at the same time as supporting our primary care workforce.

We’re an organisation committed to learning from our staff and patients.
