Shropshire Doctors Cooperative (Shropdoc) is a clinically led, not for profit, provider of Urgent Primary Care services. Established in 1996, we were rated as ‘Outstanding’ by the Clinical Quality Commission in 2017.

Our workforce of 200 GP members and 180 clinical and administrative support staff has a strong track record of innovation in both service design and multidisciplinary workforce development and collaborates with many organisations both locally and nationally in pursuit of excellent Patient care.

Following a thorough Governance review we determined that the Board would be further supported by an independent Chair and are now seeking applications from suitably qualified candidates.

The successful applicant will be a senior individual with proven strategic leadership and governance skills. Specific health knowledge and experience is desirable but not essential – the critical objective is to establish an effective, capable Chair going forward. The NHS is experiencing serious financial and workforce challenges and we require expert support to maintain quality, exploit opportunities and manage risk.

The post is 3 half day sessions per month, covering monthly Board meetings and regular contact with the Managing Director, staff teams and managers.
