NHS England leads the NHS in England, setting the priorities and direction of the NHS and informing the national debate to improve health and care. We strongly believe in health and high quality care for all, now and for future generations and want everyone to have greater control of their health and 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 their spending. Our work involves the commissioning of health care services in England, and we support local health services that are led by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). We have devised and are delivering a strategic vision for the NHS, along with our partners in health, called the Five Year Forward View.

If the advertised role is based in London on an Agenda for Change Pay Band, it will attract a High Cost Area supplement. This supplement is not applicable to Executive or Senior Manager or Medical Leader positions. For positions offered on a part time basis, salary and any allowances will be adjusted pro rata.

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

The UK offers the fastest national A & E treatment of any major industrialised country however with ever increasing attendances on the departments and year on year growth in emergency admissions, there is growing pressures on the A & E departments.  

The Urgent & Emergency Care Programme has a number of work streams working on alleviating the pressures; one such initiative for Winter 17/18 was the introduction of the Winter Operations Team whose aim was to deliver improved, safe and more resilient performance over winter. 

The NHS is now creating a dedicated UEC Operations infrastructure at a local, regional and national level in order to maintain a highly effective programme right throughout the year but especially over winter. 

We are looking to appoint 2 to the National UEC Operations team. This dynamic team will be instrumental in helping to shape the future UEC operations function in order to maintain a high paced, targeted and highly effective improvement programme right throughout the year, but especially over winter so that Trusts and surrounding systems put in place the building blocks for the future.
