This is a fantastic opportunity to become part of a network that will develop and improve patient care. You will work with local residents, services and contribute to how we shape this service to make it work for our local residents.

The successful candidate will work across different areas within our network and be embedded within general practice. They will exercise a flexible and proactive approach and work well as part of a multi-disciplinary team.

This is an exciting role which will develop and grow with time and the successful candidate.
