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.

Do you believe that people should be given more choice and control over how their health and care needs are met?

 If so, we are looking for talented individuals who have the appetite and skills to become part of a high performing team that is determined to make good on the NHS' longstanding promise to give people choice and control over where and how they receive their care.

The Choice team forms part of the growing Personalisation and Choice Group within NHS England. Together 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.

To be successful we need to catalyse a real shift in attitudes and behaviours of patients, carers and healthcare professionals.

To achieve this, the Choice team has developed some exciting and radical programmes of work that need to be delivered in partnership with commissioners and providers of frontline health and care services over the next couple of years.

Programmes include:

  • Supporting people, carers and families to exercise meaningful choice by providing them with the necessary information and tools.
  • Supporting commissioners by demonstrating how meaningful choice can add value using the Securing meaningful choice for patients: CCG planning and improvement guide
  • Supporting hospital providers by using Choice to help spread and reduce the demand for planned services
  • Supporting place based approaches to meaningful choice by working with whole systems sites wanting to develop person and community centred approaches at scale
  • Supporting priority initiatives including the Maternity Transformation Programme and improving End of Life Care

These programmes form an important part of the successful delivery of the Five Year Forward View which sets out a clear vision for the NHS.

This vacancy is for a Project Manager (AfC band 7) to work primarily on the End of Life Care  agenda.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a friendly and ambitious team, focussed on making a real difference by empowering people to have greater choice and control.
