Salford Primary Care Together is a young, innovative social enterprise working in one of the country’s most progressive health and care systems.  Established in 2016, we are facilitating a joined-up voice for general practice in Salford, positioning primary care and our communities at the heart of the city’s ground-breaking Integrated Care Organisation. We are a Primary Care and GP support organisation. As a Social Enterprise we are independent of, but strongly aligned to, the principles and values of the NHS, working for the benefit of local people and communities. We are an enterprising and entrepreneurial organisation, committed to facilitating collaboration between Salford’s GP practices, and creating an environment for the effective sharing of resources and services that will ensure the people of Salford benefit from the continual improvement of primary care services.  Our range of activities is diverse and includes direct delivery of three GP practices, a GP service for homeless people, support for GP practices in difficulty and our partnerships with Primary Care Networks delivering services on their behalf. We also deliver a very successful Workforce Development and Training service and operate a vehicle through which extended primary care services can be delivered across the City.  

We are an ambitious Board, continually seeking out new opportunities to work with primary care services to deliver positive impact for our populations.  Now at the start of an exciting new chapter, we are establishing a strong, new Executive team who will work with our talented Non-Executives as a Unitary Board.  We are looking to recruit a new Chief Executive, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Finance Officer to develop our enterprise further and to harness the talent and dedication of our staff and partners on this journey.  Our leadership team will embed a culture of creativity and positivity enabling us to respond to opportunities and challenges now and in the future.

Our Chief Executive will support the appointment of our new Chief Operating Officer and Chief Finance Officer to create a truly corporate leadership team.  A curious leader with an enterprising mindset, you will quickly build credibility in leading an organisation which seeks to move from start-up to scale-up mode within a complex health and care system.  An experienced, highly strategic leader, you will embody our values as you inspire our dedicated workforce and engage collaboratively with our broad range of stakeholders.  With an appreciation of the complexity of our environment, you will have experience of organisational leadership in a developing and transformational enterprise.  Working closely with our Chair, you will be comfortable with Board-level responsibilities and understand the accountability we have to our stakeholders.  This is a unique opportunity to make your mark in a dynamic and entrepreneurial organisation and an advanced health and care system, creating a positive impact on the wellbeing of our populations.
