Our Organisation

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.

NHS Improvement is offering an exciting opportunity for an ambitious individual to work in the Overseas Visitor Improvement Team. Working in partnership with the Department of Health’s high-profile Visitor and Migrant NHS Cost Recovery Programme, other Arm’s Length Bodies (Home Office, NHS England and NHS Digital) and other key stakeholders, the team will be responsible for supporting the NHS to drive up overseas visitor identification and the recovery of treatment costs.

The UK Government has committed to support the NHS to recover up to £500m from overseas visitors and migrants for use in the NHS. The programme seeks to recruit a cost recovery team, a small group of highly- experienced and skilled NHS staff who will provide NHS trusts with on and off-site bespoke support. In addition, the team will work with the Department and NHS Improvement to establish and test an evidence base of best practice and a national minimum data set for cost recovery. Finally, the team will work with key stakeholders in a Trust’s local health economy (including commissioners and local primary care providers) to build a wide understanding of the relevant legislation, incentive schemes, sanctions and associated processes designed to maximise cost recovery.

The Informatics Delivery Manager will work within a small team of skilled NHS professionals; you will play a key role within the team’s engagement with NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts across the country. As directed by the Senior Informatics Lead, the main focus of the role will be to roll out, implement and embed the changes necessary of the MESH and FUNNEL systems identified as being the best way to identify potential overseas chargeable patients. The job description provides more detailed information on the role.

This is an excellent opportunity for an individual who has proven ability to support a significant and complex work programme in a challenging environment. Of particular importance is the ability to work and engage with a range of professionals and to support NHS Improvement and providers to realise the cost recovery potential. As required, the individual will need to be willing to visit trusts in England.

Please note that the reason for the fixed term of contract is to backfill resignation.
