NHS England and NHS Improvement came together on 1 April 2019 as a new single organisation. The NHS Long Term Plan focuses on delivering integrated care to patients at the local level and we can best support the NHS to deliver this as a single integrated organisation.
Our new operating model represents a strong shift to regional delivery supported by expert corporate teams. Local health systems are supported by our integrated regional teams who play a major leadership role in the geographies they manage.
We are jointly committed to creating and maintaining a fair and supportive working environment and culture, where contributions are fully recognised and valued by all and staff feel empowered to carry out their duties to the best of their abilities. As employers we are committed to promoting and protecting the physical and mental health and well-being of all our staff. This underpins our values as set out in the NHS Constitution, supports us to be an Employer of Choice and ultimately enables our employees to support the effective care of our patients.
The Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) provides clinical and professional advice and leadership in healthcare science across the health and care system, inclusive of the 50 plus different scientific specialities/services in diagnostic areas such as pathology, microbiology, genetics/ genomics, cardiac and respiratory physiology, in specialised therapeutic areas such as radiotherapy physics and clinical engineering and in bioinformatics and health informatics. The team works within the national Medical Directorate and oversees development of NHS England’s corporate position nationally on healthcare science and related clinical issues, working closely with the relevant National Directors and National Clinical Directors (NCDs) and within the NHS England’s regions.
The CSO team is undertaking a piece of work to ‘Maximise the use of high quality, rapid, and value driven diagnostic technologies to tackle the challenge of antimicrobial resistance’ and is looking to recruit a dynamic, experienced Microbiologist (Medic or Scientist), with a national profile, to lead this piece of work as a secondment opportunity. The successful candidate will be working with senior clinical and policy leaders to ensure development of national standards of quality and safety for point of care diagnostics, a rapid, accurate and flexible diagnostic offer tailored to the setting, pursuing the best innovative practice by leveraging system partnerships in health innovation.
