Practice Manager – Full-time


Our Practice manager is retiring in late autumn and we are looking for a full time innovative and dynamic replacement to join our management team. It is hoped to have a month or so handover period.


We require a highly motivated, enthusiastic individual who is able to remain calm under pressure. Candidates must have demonstrable leadership skills, combined with operational management experience including reviewing systems and implementing change. In addition you will have competency in office IT and excellent people management and communication skills. This is a very busy ‘hands on’ role and you will be expected to take responsibility for the day to day smooth running of the practice supported by a dedicated administrative and clinical team.


We are a friendly 10 partner teaching and research practice in Lancaster. We pride ourselves on providing a supportive and progressive working environment within a dynamic team, offering high quality care to our 14,700 patients. We operate across a main and rural branch surgery.

Previous experience in general practice/healthcare and/or HR experience would be an advantage but not essential. The successful candidate will join our management team, reporting to the Practice Director, and working closely with our Finance Manager and Lead Nurse.


A competitive salary is on offer commensurate with skills and experience, together with an excellent NHS pension.


For an informal discussion regarding this post please telephone Jonathan Whitford-Bartle (Practice Director) or Joan Hanson (Practice Manager) on 01524 843333


Closing Date: 26 Jul 2019 Interviews: TBC Aug 2019
