NHS England leads the National Health Service (NHS) in England. We set the priorities and direction of the NHS and encourage and inform the national debate to improve health and care.

We want everyone to have greater control of their health and their wellbeing, and to be supported to live longer, healthier lives by high quality health and care services that are compassionate, inclusive and constantly-improving.

NHS England shares out more than £100 billion in funds and holds organisations to account for spending this money effectively for patients and efficiently for the tax payer. A lot of the work we do involves the commissioning of health care services in England. We commission the contracts for GPs, pharmacists, and dentists and we support local health services that are led by groups of GPs called Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). CCGs plan and pay for local services such as hospitals and ambulance services.

We have devised a strategic vision for the NHS, along with our partners in health, called the Five Year Forward View. And now, with our partners, we are delivering that vision. This vision shows that we are getting serious about prevention, identifying and delivering improvements in health care, redesigning the NHS so it continues to meet the needs of patients, ensuring the NHS is financially sustainable and engaging the public in this whole process.

We strongly believe in health and high quality care for all, now and for future generations.

Please note, if the advertised role is based in London on an Agenda for Change Pay Band, it will attract a High Cost Area Supplement. If this post is an Executive or Senior Manager (ESM) role or Medical Leader position this supplement is not applicable.

Health and Justice Admin Support

NHS England leads the National Health Service (NHS) in England. We set the priorities and direction of the NHS and encourage and inform the national debate to improve health and care.

We want everyone to have greater control of their health and their wellbeing, and to be supported to live longer, healthier lives by high quality health and care services that are compassionate, inclusive and constantly-improving.

NHS England shares out more than £100 billion in funds and holds organisations to account for spending this money effectively for patients and efficiently for the tax payer. A lot of the work we do involves the commissioning of health care services in England.

NHS England are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and experienced administration assistant  to join the Health & Justice. This is a really important role in the team, which ensures that everything we do is administered in the right way.  The person will work largely unsupervised because the team is mostly out of the office. This doesn’t  however mean you will be unsupported, but it does mean that we rely on you to keep everything running smoothly, and you will have a lot of influence over how that is done – which could be a real positive for someone who loves making a difference in their role.

 
You will need administration experience, communication and organising skills, and it would be helpful if you already know the NHS or the criminal justice sector.  You will have experience in coordination and administrative processes and systems and be able to develop and improve administration  as necessary. You will demonstrate understanding of the NHS principles and values as set out in the NHS Constitution.

 

As Health and Justice administration assistant, the post holder will have lead responsibility for the administration of the commissioning of health services for people in contact with the criminal justice sector.

 

We work with a wide range of partner organisations to fulfil our responsibilities in this  high-profile area, and the post holder will work closely with senior colleagues in a range of partner organisations to fulfil the role.   This is an important role which requires a candidate  who understands commissioning, and who can confidently manage the administration of all that the team does.

 

As there is travel to other locations across the 6 counties in East, candidates will need to be willing to travel.  Since it is possible there may be visits to other health and justice areas, candidates may need to be prepared to visit custodial settings.
