NHS England leads the NHS in England, setting the priorities and direction of the NHS and informing the national debate to improve health and care. We strongly believe in health and high quality care for all, now and for future generations and want everyone to have greater control of their health and 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 their spending. Our work involves the commissioning of health care services in England, and we support local health services that are led by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). We have devised and are delivering a strategic vision for the NHS, along with our partners in health, called the Five Year Forward View.

If the advertised role is based in London on an Agenda for Change Pay Band, it will attract a High Cost Area supplement. This supplement is not applicable to Executive or Senior Manager or Medical Leader positions. For positions offered on a part time basis, salary and any allowances will be adjusted pro rata.

We will not accept applications for this position by CV or via recruitment agencies.

Do you have strong analytical skills and a passion to support the NHS to improve health outcomes and efficiency across the patient pathway? NHS RightCare is a national NHS England supported programme, contributing to the financial sustainability of the NHS which is a key priority of its Five Year Forward View.

We have a vacancy for one fixed term analyst to join our analytical teams, based in London or Leeds. There may be additional jobs available in both locations.

Analysis and Intelligence is central to the NHS RightCare approach. Our team of analysts design and develop products to help local NHS organisations and plays a key role in ensuring that local health economies;

  • Make the best use of their resources – by tackling over and under-use of these
  • Understand their performance – by identifying variation between demographically similar populations so they can adopt and implement optimal care pathways more efficiently and effectively
  • Focus on areas of greatest opportunity by identifying priority programmes which offer the best means to improve healthcare for people.

This is an exciting area to work in and analysts within the team get plenty of opportunities to work on a wide variety of challenging and high priority analytical projects to improve healthcare within the NHS.

NHS RightCare helps to ensure the best possible care is delivered as efficiently as possible which is essential for both patients and the NHS. Ensuring people access the right care, in the right place at the right time, means more people can be treated effectively, now and in the future.  Using leading edge medical evidence and practical support, NHS RightCare helps local health economies to understand how money is spent to deliver the best care in different parts of the country.

NHS RightCare actively works with every clinical commissioning group (CCG) and sustainable transformation partnership (STP) in England and comprises professionals providing delivery, analytical, clinical advisory and programme management resource both internally and externally to the programme.
