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.

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

Senior Information Manager – Yorkshire and the Humber Specialised Commissioning


Do you understand the difference between data and intelligence? Can you utilise data to provide business intelligence? Do you have the confidence, people skills and tenacity to build relationships and drive improvements in data quality from multiple provider organisations? 

The Senior Information Manager posts within Specialised Commissioning (North) form part of a team of 3, reporting into the Regional Head of Business Intelligence, and each post is aligned to one of the sub-regional Hubs (North West, Yorkshire, Cumbria and North East). The post holders are responsible for securing robust data flows from provider organisations. A strong understanding of commissioner/provider contracting, and specialised services information requirements is essential.

Post holders will also provide support to Hubs in utilising commissioning data to identify opportunities for efficiency, productivity and better quality of services. It is therefore essential that post holders are competent and confident in extraction and analysis of large quantities of data.

Applications are sought from individuals who feel they meet the demands of the role as set out in the Job description and person specification – please read and fully understand these before completing an application.

Please note, this post will be based in Rotherham or Leeds. There will be an expectation that the post holder will be able to undertake travel (covered for under NHSE expenses policy) within the Hub area, and more infrequently to London.
