Multi-Site Clinical Lead GP

Sussex Primary Care (SPC) is a patient focused primary care provider. With 6 practices across Sussex at present and looking to expand in 2022.
We are looking to recruit a dynamic and ambitious Clinical Lead GP to be part of our Primary Care family within our well-established organisation.

The role is based across two practices in the Brighton area - St Luke’s Surgery and The Avenue Surgery. You will be working with small, friendly and professional practice teams to lead and provide high quality services to 13,000-patients. We believe that general practice can be a fun and supportive environment for GPs. We ensure this through highly developed systems and processes, and support from healthcare professionals, such as our Pharmacists, and Paramedic Practitioners.

The Clinical Lead role is envisaged to have more clinical leadership responsibility than a traditional Salaried GP role but without the personal risk associated with partnership.

You Will Benefit From:

  • Permanent position – minimum 6 sessions per week @ £12,000 to £12,500 per session per annum
  • Performance based bonus
  • £10,000 Golden Handshake to stay for 2 years (25% paid every 6 months) to recognise that you will be helping to influence and develop the surgeries and the services offered to patients over the next few years
  • Medical indemnity fees covered
  • 6 weeks annual leave, 1 week study leave, study budget

Clinical Quality & Patient Safety

  • Ensure that the systems exist to embed best clinical practice into the practice (e.g. implementation of NICE guidance, record keeping etc).
  • Take the lead for all clinical aspects of CQC compliance (Safe, Caring, Effective, Responsive, Well-Led).
  • Take the overall lead for review of clinical aspects of Significant Event reviews, ensuring that learning points are captured and embedded into practice.
