A strong background in digital transformation and/or change management is vital for this role as you will play a leading role in the development and utilisation of the network’s digital infrastructure.

You will oversee the PCN team, both the clinical (with support from assigned clinical leads) and non-clinical teams and be charged with its growth, retention and performance, assisted ably by your management colleagues from the member practices.

You will be charged with the articulation and implementation of the PCN’s vision as well as those of the member practices.
