GP Access Hub Service Manager
  • 30-37.5 hrs per week
  • Main office: Arundel; second base: Worthing
  • £33,000-£36,000 (FTE) depending on experience
  • Permanent contract, NHS funded

Innovations in Primary Care (IPC) are looking for a dynamic and efficient Service Manager to manage their 20 GP Access hubs across Coastal West Sussex that deliver GP Improved Access for our local population.

The GP Access Hubs (formerly known as MIAMI) provide urgent appointments for patients who have a new onset problem of less than four weeks duration. Appointments are booked directly by local GP practices, providing extra capacity to support practice resilience and sustainability, particularly during challenging times.  Clinicians at GPAH clinics have full access to the patient's shared GP health record and so can provide a seamless service for patients making consultations faster, safer and more effective. By dealing with simpler, single episode problems, this also releases local practice resources for managing more complex and ongoing conditions which benefit from continuity of care. Since inception, the GPAH service has provided over 100,000 additional appointments. Patient feedback has been excellent, with our most recent patient experience results showing that 96% of patients would recommend our service.

IPC is an innovative and ethical federation of local GP surgeries providing high quality, integrated, patient-focused NHS services. We achieve this by harnessing the collective knowledge, skills, experience and energy of our patients and clinicians. We believe in the importance and effectiveness of providing excellent primary care where patients need it. If you would like to apply to join us in this role, we’d love to hear from you.

Applications for the Service Managher role should be submitted via NHS Jobs.

Applications close on 7 December 2018, with interviews on 14 December 2018.
