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 NHSBSA is responsible for the processing of your application; a privacy notice is attached to advise you on how we will process your personal data.

Do you want to be part of a dynamic team, dedicated to improving maternity services across London? If you are an experienced programme/project manager with solid communications skills, this is the role for you. 


We are delighted to announce that the London Clinical Networks have an exciting opportunity to recruit a Senior Project Manager to improve maternity services in line with the policy direction set out in Better Births.  Our aim is that by 2025 London’s maternity services will see the rate of stillbirths, neonatal and maternal deaths halved and people using maternity services will have a better overall experience.  We will achieve this by working alongside mums, mums to-be and their families.


The post holder must be a self-starter who will be able to:

  • Deploy strong project management skills in a fast paced environment
  • Effectively communicate and collaborate with a range of stakeholders
  • Use knowledge and experience of change management and improvement science
  • Contribute to service and pathway redesign


The role would be well suited to experienced project managers and midwives with change management experience.


The Clinical Network’s role is to drive improvements where large scale change is required. This is frequently across complex pathways of care involving many professional groups and organisations to ensure an integrated approach which improves quality and outcomes of care for patients.


The network provides the clinical expertise and leadership to drive commissioning decision making, measure and benchmark quality and share best practice and innovation. A key guiding principle is engaging women, their partners and families in all work streams alongside the expertise of clinicians across the capital.
