Join Bolton for a career in primary care
People interested in a career in the health professions are urged to find out what Bolton has to offer in the first Greater Manchester-wide careers fair dedicated to primary care.
Representatives from NHS Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) will take part in the ‘Building a career in primary care’ event on Wednesday, April 3 at Manchester Central Convention Complex.
Held in the Charter Foyer at the exhibition centre, the careers fair will focus on opportunities to work and train in GP practices, pharmacy, dentistry and optometry.
Bolton CCG will join a range of stands at the event to give people a better insight into what it’s like to work in primary care.
Primary care is the term used to describe some elements of healthcare in the community, and is often the first point of contact for most people when they need health and care support. It is vital to helping people receive the correct type of treatment or advice.
A career in primary care offers a range of varied roles, including medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, practice manager, health improvement practitioner and much more.
Bolton is embarking on a period of significant change within its health and care system, by working in a more integrated way with its partners at Bolton Council and Bolton NHS Foundation Trust.
This provides an exciting opportunity for people interested in working in this field to be involved in shaping the future of health and care in the town.
Dr Stephen Liversedge, Clinical Director for Primary Care Development and Health Improvement at NHS Bolton CCG, said: “Working in primary care has always been an extremely rewarding career, and it’s nothing if not varied!
“However, as we bring together our health and care services, the prospect of working more directly with communities and neighbourhoods will provide a raft of new and exciting opportunities for people who want to make a difference.
“In Bolton especially, we really invest in relationships with our GP practices and we value the role primary care plays in the health and wellbeing of our residents. If anyone was considering a career in health, or thinking of changing jobs, then I would urge them to find out what Bolton has to offer.”
Bolton CCG’s primary care team will be at the event from 2pm to 7pm.
The event has been organised by the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership and is free to attend.
