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.

NHS England wishes to appoint a committed and talented individual to support the development and delivery of personal wheelchair budgets. The post will involve directly supporting Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), Local Authorities, NHS Providers and Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprises to support the implementation of personal wheelchair budgets increasing the number of personal health budgets available to people line with Government Mandate ambitions for 50-100,000.

This support will be extended to key partners including Local Authorities, NHS Providers and Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprises.

This is an exciting opportunity to influence the way the NHS supports people to have more choice and control over the services they receive we are looking for someone with the drive and commitment to support this transformational change programme of work.
