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.
The Personalised Care Group within NHS England is responsible for driving forward person centred care across the NHS. Person centred care, also known as personalised care, is essential to the successful delivery of the Five Year Forward View which sets out a clear vision for the NHS to work to empower patients to personalise and have more control over their own care, including by breaking down barriers between health and social care.
There are a number of programmes that span personalised care including self-care, personal health budgets, Integrated Personal Commissioning, shared decision making and care and support planning.
This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and experienced individual to work as part of a dynamic national team developing policy that underpins the objectives of the Personalised Care Group. The post holder will work closely with others working on personalised care development and delivery to ensure the policies and guidance developed are robust and fit with what needs to happen in the NHS to change the system to a more person-centred, personalised one.
This is a fixed term appointment and could be Leeds or London Based until the 23 11 2018
We are also recruiting to a part time post 22.5 hours to cover Maternity leave from May 2018- May 2018
