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.

This is an exciting opportunity for a fixed term role or secondment into a busy programme team, specifically for someone wishing to develop their data analysis and stakeholder engagement skills.

As Programme Manager, the post holder will work as part of a dynamic team in delivering an effective service supporting managers and staff across the Improving Access to General Practice team on their national programme, with a particular focus on GP data and IT projects which are important to the delivery of the GPFV.

The Improving Access to General Practice programme aims to deliver the mandate commitment to “ensure everyone has easier and more convenient access to GP services, including appointments at evening and weekends”. 

The programme will deliver the provision of extended access to GP services, including at evenings and weekends, for 100% of the population by 1 October 2018.  This will be delivered using more innovative ways for people to access general practice, building on feedback from the local population and ensuring a more integrated approach to providing general practice and wider out-of-hospital services.

The post holder will be part of the provision of an efficient, effective and high quality professional and well-co-ordinated programme management function capable of meeting all statutory, regulatory and NHS requirements ensuring alignment with the activity of the organisation.

The post holder will work specifically on the data element of this team’s business plan, supporting the national GP data programme as it evolves.  The post holder will work with internal stakeholders such as the analytical team and external stakeholders such as NHS Digital and clinical system supplier in order to best deliver optimal outcomes for patients.
