Our Primary Care Offer

What matters to our primary care team at ELFT is delivering care to our patients in partnership with both our patients and the other organisations we work with. By doing this we are able to provide high quality care that is easy to access; the care we would want for the people we love. We are working with our patients, our teams and our partner organisations to transform our services so that they not only do a great job now but also long into the future. To achieve this we work differently, try new things and constantly learn and evolve. 

The primary care services we provide vary from specialist services, providing care to vulnerable and homeless populations, to more mainstream general practice and we work across East London and Bedfordshire. The Long Term Plan sets out a vision for primary care to lead on population health improvement and we work in partnership with mental health, community services, acute services, social care, the voluntary sector and ambulance services to help our local populations stay well. 

Our primary care directorate team are developing and working on several exciting new concepts to strengthen and provide resilience to general practice. Tackling health inequalities, involving patients, using quality improvement and being a ‘good neighbour’ to the other organisations we work with are all part of how we work every day. The successful candidate will be part of a team helping to achieve our aim to improve the lives of those we serve. 

We invest in our people and have two key areas of focus- the well-being of the people we work with and developing our team. Our dedicated well-being champion and our primary care skills academy help us to achieve our aims of having a happy team that feel cared for, respected and included. 

Working As A Team

We are always looking to find people who share our passion for providing the kind of care we would want for the people we love. We also want to find talented people who want to work as part of a diverse team, provide leadership and try new things. The role of clinicians and administrators in primary care is evolving, as a part of our primary care team you will use your skills to help contribute to peoples care. Any job in primary care is a challenging job and for our teams to work together our GP’s, nurses, allied health professionals and our administrators all need a system designed to support everyone, so that we can do the best for our patients.
