An exciting opportunity has arisen for the position of Practice Manager to join our team.  

Canisbay and Castletown Group Practice operates as a small, well organised and friendly GMS dispensing practice from two sites with a patient list of around 3000.

Practice team include 2 GP partners, 1ANP, 1 Developing ANP, 3 Practice nurses, Physiotherapist, Pharmacist and an experienced team of reception/dispensing staff as well as a rotation of medical students.  The practice covers a mostly rural area located in the beautiful and unspoilt north coast of Caithness on the NC500 route.

The Practice Manager role is to provide a global and comprehensive managerial service to the practice including the safe operation across both sites, full budget control and the organisation of both staff and practice development.  This is an exciting time to join our practice as we work alongside NHS Highland during the Caithness redesign of services.

The ideal candidate should have previous management experience with proven practical experience in financial budgeting, HR and the support/development of teams.  Interpersonal skills and an interest in personal/professional development are highly desirable.  Previous health care management experience is preferable but not essential.  Depending on experience, the applicant may be required to participate in the Scotland Practice Management Vocational Scheme with support from the practice.  

The successful candidate will be required to operate from both sites therefore a full current driving licence and access to own car is essential. The Practice Manager role requires a full-time commitment, and should be open to flexible working in order to be accessible to the team.
