This role in NHS England’s Clinical Policy Unit represents an exciting opportunity to be part of a dynamic team at the cutting edge of national clinical policy development in the NHS, working to improve outcomes for the people of England.

As Programme Delivery Manager you will be responsible for creating, developing and managing clinical policy and projects to support policy development across the organisation. An important aspect of the role will be about managing the interface with a range of internal stakeholders and partner organisations nationally.

The Clinical Policy Unit is responsible for the design, development and provision of advice on clinical policy to support delivery of the Five Year Forward View (FYFV) and future clinical challenges. This includes major killer diseases such as stroke, cardiovascular disease and sepsis; leading on causes of morbidity such as frailty and MSK; and supporting operational implementation in FYFV priority areas. 

The Clinical Policy Unit has four main functions:

    • Designing clinical policy to address national strategic health challenges to improve health, care and use of resources.
    • Responding to urgent clinical issues and policy requirements
    • Accessing and building clinical evidence and insight
    • Wide stakeholder engagement and relationship management

We are seeking an experienced Programme Manager in clinical policy development with a proven track record of delivery. You will be expected to have excellent communication and organisational skills, team leadership and great attention to detail. Demonstrating strong political awareness you will have the ability to quickly establish credibility with other senior leaders and build productive relationships internally and externally. This is an excellent opportunity to support change at a national level for the population of England in a complex health and social care system.
