Focused Care Practitioners
If you would like to join this unique and groundbreaking team, vacancies are advertised on the NHS Jobs Website as they arise. We are not currently open to applications.
Focused Care is commissioned by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, and several CCG’s in Greater Manchester. As times have changed we have developed a Primary Care Network commissioning model which would enable practices to commission Focused Care on a PCN social prescribing basis. If you are interested in bringing Focused Care to your Primary Care Network area or surgery, please email Jenny Webster at email@example.com for further information.
Practicalities for GP Surgeries
Focused Care Practitioners are placed in GP surgeries in areas of high deprivation for 2 days a week, and employed by Focused Care CIC. Supervision is provided in partnership with the surgery and through a centralised Focused Care Co-ordinator.
Basic requirements from the practice for your Focused Care Practitioner:
- A GP to take the lead with Focused Care, meeting for 1/2 session on a monthly basis with the Focused Care Practitioner
- A practice-wide team meeting on a 6 weekly basis to discuss caseload and progress
- Desk space with computer, printer and phone access and a filing cabinet space
- Clinical system access for note recording
