Work With Us
Taurus Healthcare is the GP Federation that supports all Herefordshire's GP practices. We employ staff on behalf of the practices and Primary Care Networks (PCNs). More than 300 people work with us in clinical services, at our corporate offices, within PCNs and practices.
Taurus is making a real and positive difference to healthcare delivery across Herefordshire. Originally set up to support General Practice throughout Herefordshire in the provision of its services, we have expanded over the years in terms of how this is delivered.
We are a a values-led organisation, built on a culture of mutual trust, respect, and support. 'Team Taurus' is a close-knit group of dedicated professionals working together with General Practice partners to deliver the highest quality of care.
This collective model enables us to provide a continuum of patient care across 24 hours of every day. It also enables patients to access clinical services their GPs would otherwise not be able to provide.
Herefordshire General Practice is working collaboratively to support our workforce in a way that ensures both individual and collective resilience.
- Through offering flexible career opportunities, including options to work day and night time and / or out of hours in different services and locations, including working from home
- By offering support and opportunity for career development and progression
- By being digitally innovative with robust data sharing and technology solutions, connected through EMIS.
We work closely with Herefordshire and Worcestershire Integrated Care Board (ICB) and Herefordshire (place) partners and have developed excellent relationships with Wye Valley NHS Trust, Herefordshire Council, and the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust, modelling a genuinely integrated, joined-up approach to care.

Why Work in Herefordshire?
Herefordshire is a very rural, beautiful, green county bordering south Wales. It has a population of around 200,000 people, around a third of whom live in Hereford City. Ninety-five per cent of the land in the county is classified as ‘rural’ with over half of the population living in rural areas. About one quarter of the population is over 65 (compared to about 18% nationally).
The Coronavirus pandemic caused many people to reflect and re-evaluate what is important to them. Factors such as time with family and friends, green spaces and clean air are amongst the top of the list. In Herefordshire, you can find plenty of space and unspoilt country to explore, a vibrant cathedral city and bustling market towns and an active arts and cultural scene.
In terms of healthcare, Herefordshire has one mental health and learning disabilities provider, one acute hospital and community services provider, one countywide GP federation (Taurus Healthcare), one local authority and clinical commissioning group and strong community engagement. We are committed to working together to improve health and wellbeing for Herefordshire people and to provide more joined up care, closer to home.
We trust each other. We develop our services together. We learn together. We are One Herefordshire.
