Medical Director
c£120,000 (pro rata)
Part time: 2.5 - 3 days per week

The Birmingham and District GP Emergency Room (Badger) Ltd is a not-for-profit social enterprise healthcare co-operative with an annual turnover of £13 million and a staff population of 422 people. Badger was established in 1996 by local doctors who joined together to initially provide an improved out-of-hours service for their patients.

Today we have opted-in GP members in 60+ practices and provide 24/7 message handling, urgent primary care and GP out of hours service to a patient base of 1.6 million. Rated as ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) we have built up a respected reputation throughout Birmingham and the surrounding areas. We have a national profile in the sector for being an exceptional organisation where quality service and quality improvement are at the heart of what we do.

We know that the future will be different with continued pressures on health sector services and an increased focus on improving value. However, against this shifting delivery context, one thing remains a constant - our passion to provide care that people can trust. We have a strong and committed board and a leadership team who ensure the organisation holds true to its values and delivers quality services that meet the needs of patients and commissioners.

We are now seeking to appoint the key post of Medical Director to join our leadership team. This is an exciting and rewarding role with the opportunity to make a real difference in improving the health and wellbeing of our communities.

As Medical Director you will have leadership responsibility for achieving the highest quality and safety standards across our services. You will provide clinical leadership to our clinical workforce and advice and guidance to the Board. You will work with colleagues to identify innovation in relation to our use of digital technologies and on our quality strategy and assurance frameworks.

You will also work closely with the Chief Executive to build on the existing relationships with our ICS, place, and provider partners and importantly to lead on developing the relationships with ICB Medical Directors. In addition, you will provide input into tenders, bids and contracts, and the development and provision of new and innovative services.

This senior and prestigious position will demand a high level of commitment, skill, and independence of mind. We believe the position will offer the successful applicant the opportunity to bring their own personality and skills to our caring, growing, and forward-thinking organisation.
We are proud that our organisation is one of the most diverse in Birmingham and understand the benefits this brings to the quality of services. We warmly welcome applications from all irrespective of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.
