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 NHS in London has significant experience in responding to emergencies and its Emergency Preparedness Resilience and Response (EPRR) procedures ensure that the NHS can manage the challenges resulting from major incidents, periods of increased pressure, and sudden surges in demand.

The NHS England (London) EPRR Team, created in April 2013 plays a key role in supporting and coordinating that response.

The Team comprises four core elements, three groups working directly with in designated areas, covering South, North West and North East/ North Central London, and a small regional focussed team with responsibility for such things as Pandemic Flu, Surge Capacity management and engagement with multi-agency partners through the London Resilience Team (LRT).

The Area EPRR Networks are a critical component in building and maintaining relationships with NHS providers, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and other health organisations across London.

As a Geographical Network Manager the post holder will be part of the NHS England (London) Regional EPRR Team reporting directly to the Regional Head of EPRR and directly managing a team of three EPRR Managers.

Central to the post is supporting the development and maintenance of emergency preparedness arrangements across their designated geographical area through direct engagement and undertaking regular audit reviews of NHS organisations. Such organisations include Acute and Specialist Hospital Trusts, Mental and Community Health providers, non-acute Trusts, Commissioning Support Units (CSU’s), and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG’s).
