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 postholder will be part of the Personalised Care Group’s Looked After Children project team. Their immediate role is to provide support into a national programme of work to support a number of CCGs and partners as they develop and test the potential of personal health budgets to ensure that looked after children and care leavers have choice and control over the support that they receive for their mental health and wellbeing. In addition the postholder will have wider responsibilities to support the broader IPC Delivery Programme.  This role will work across two teams (Children and Young People’s Mental Health Team and the Integrated Personal Commissioning Delivery Team) bringing together two key Government Priorities:

  • The broad ambition to improve outcomes for Looked after children and care leavers as set out in Future in Mind'.
  • The drive to improve choice and control within the NHS as set out in The Five Year Forward View and to meet the personal health budget expectations as set out in the Five Year Forward View, the NHS Mandate and the related planning guidance for CCGs.

You will manage the aspects of the team’s business support function, including developing and managing the team’s business plan, progress and reporting risk and issue management.  You will support the management of a complex budget, together with the project lead and finance colleagues. You will have excellent relationship management skills, and ability to build credibility and trust with colleagues within the NHS, local government, the voluntary sector, and central Government. 

The specific objectives of the Looked After Children with Mental Health Needs Personal Health Budgets project are to:

  • Develop a viable replicable model for the introduction of personal health budgets and integrated budgets to this cohort of children and young people across 7 sites
  • For each of these sites to have identified the appropriate cohort and scaled up personal health budgets to these children and young people by March 2019.
  • Develop the evidence, capability and capacity to roll out this approach nationally from March 2019.

The post holder will also be required to attend site meetings throughout England, including some travel.

NHS England values contributions from diverse backgrounds, and would welcome applications from under-represented groups.

For more information on Future in Mind, Personal Health Budgets and Integrated Personal Commissioning please see the NHS England website.

The advert will close early if we have a high volume of applications.
