Clinical Lead GP – a new challenge in the West Country

An exciting opportunity exists for a Clinical Lead GP in the West Country.

We are looking for someone exceptional to be:

  • Responsible for developing services to 20,000 patients across 2 sites in the centre of Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset;
  • An innovator, with a desire to work amongst deprived populations helping to reduce health inequalities and develop a non-medical model;
  • Influential in the design and development of a modern and innovative new surgery and services to serve our town centre;
  • Part of the Pier Health super partnership helping to reshape the delivery of healthcare in the area.

Pier Health Group Limited was set up in October 2018 to help support a struggling practice within Weston-super-Mare. On 17th June 2019 we took over the running of a further two surgeries at very short notice, when the previous providers for GP primary care services were unable to continue. We are undertaking a large transformation programme and have already merged these two practices.

You would join an experienced and talented transformation team who come from across the country who are working with the operational staff to build a robust, quality and sustainable organisation going forward. We believe passionately in delivering the very best in care for our patients by continuously improving our service in innovative ways.

We are also part of Pier Health, the super partnership that was formed in July 2019 of surgeries in and around Weston super Mare and covers almost 93,000 patients in Weston, Worle and surrounding villages which is also the primary care network in this area. Pier Health has all of the benefits of working for a large organisation yet also offers the sense of individuality belonging to a local partnership practice if this is what you seek. This is a unique proposition and goes well beyond that of a typical federation.

Salaried permanent – full-time - flexible working available

Attractive salary commensurate with experience with indemnity paid and NHS pension
