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’s Personalised Care Group is seeking to appoint an experienced Programme Support Manager who combines expertise in Programme and Project Management with strong people management skills and a ‘customer service’ ethos. This is a key role in helping the Group realise its potential to make a significant contribution to meeting the NHS Five Year Forward View’s Triple Aim of improved health and wellbeing, better care and greater value for the public pound.  

Personalised care means people having choice and control over decisions that affect their own health and wellbeing within a system that harnesses the expertise, capacity and potential of people, families and communities in delivering better outcomes and reducing health inequalities.  Making it a routine, everyday reality for people requires the systematic implementation of a series of evidence-based interventions, involving changes to front line practice and to commissioning, as well as stronger partnership and co-production arrangements.

The post holder will manage a dynamic Programme and Performance Management Team (PPMT) of four band 7s, to deliver an effective service helping teams across the Group put in place robust arrangements for delivering the Group’s business objectives, managing risks and issues, and monitoring and reporting on progress.
