Primary Care Sheffield is an innovative GP-led organisation providing Primary Care services for over 500,000 of our city’s population and supporting all 79 GP practices across the city, each of which is a shareholder in our organisation.  Our vision is that, by working together and working in more flexible and innovative ways, we can not only deliver improved access for patients but also improve working lives.  Our services range from the provision of out of hours appointments to the direct running of six GP practices. As a key partner in Sheffield’s Accountable Care Partnership – which is one of the Country’s foremost accountable care systems - PCS is at an exciting time in its development, with the opportunity to shape the future of sustainable health and care services for Sheffield and South Yorkshire through this collaborative approach to system transformation.

Joining our values-based and progressive organisation at a senior level, you will provide strong operational grip and motivational leadership to an experienced senior team.  Externally you will build trusted and productive relationships with our partners, working closely with our CEO, Dr Andrew Hilton, to develop a health and social care system which supports Primary Care, both at practice level and at scale within the wider system. You will also lead the development of PCS’s commercial interests by identifying and securing new contracts, and by developing innovative commercial business models with partners.

To succeed, you will have a successful track record of senior leadership in a complex organisation which could have been gained across the public, private or voluntary sectors. You will have strong operational expertise and commercial acumen, and be experienced in delivering transformational change, developing business and commercial opportunities and influencing across multiple organisations.
