We are recruiting - Director of Primary Care vacancy at Londonwide LMCs

Help us give London’s GPs a voice so they can deliver high quality healthcare.

Londonwide LMCs brings together 27 borough LMCs under one umbrella.

Local Medical Committees are the independent voice of all GPs, practice team members and their PCNs in each area, with a role set out in statute.

In addition to providing services to support GPs and practices, we negotiate local services with commissioners, represent general practice (including PCNs), to hospital trusts, other NHS bodies, local authorities and anyone else in their area with whom practices have a professional relationship. 

The director of primary care will play a key role in forming our organisational strategy to value, care for and protect general practice in London.

The successful candidate will understand integrated care system strategy and the implications for providers and services. They have experience of working across organisational boundaries within the health and care system and embedding relationships with stakeholders, with demonstrable positive impact.

They will understand the challenges, opportunities and threats facing GP practices and be able to assess implications of new evolving NHS structures, policies, procedures and contractual frameworks on the stability and sustainability of general practice.

The candidate will understand the operational needs of practices and PCNs and be able to effectively represent practices alongside medical director colleagues, for example in local service contract negotiation and funding allocation discussions.

Above all, the successful candidate will be passionate about the stability and sustainability of general practice across London and driven to ensure that service development protects and maximises the value that GPs and their practice team offer their patients and local communities.

In this way, the successful candidate will have real impact on the lives and health outcomes of millions of people.

In return, you can expect an excellent salary and benefits, plus membership of our group pension scheme (including an employer’s contribution of 16% of your salary). Whilst this is a full-time position, we are happy to consider flexible hours to accommodate different styles of working.
