About The Role

This is an amazing opportunity to lead a truly integrated team who will deliver outstanding patient care. As the GP, you’ll support the Head of Healthcare in shaping the policies and strategies for developing and modernising clinical practice in order to ensure high quality, safe and appropriate healthcare services for our patients.
