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.

We will not accept applications for this position by CV or via recruitment agencies.

GP Forward View Transformation Programme

Fixed term/secondment from mid July 2018 to 31 March 2019

NHS England South East is refocusing its activities to support delivery of its Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) and Integrated Care Systems (ICS’s). To do this we have a General Practice Forward View (GPFV) Transformation Team to work alongside STP areas, to deliver the GPFV transformation programme. This is an exciting opportunity for you to be involved in delivering transformational change, supporting system wide collaborative working, enabling best practice in the delivery of primary medical care services. Facing to the future, you will bring your experience of delivering transformational change and understanding of Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) and STP area landscapes, to ensure we deliver and maximise the opportunities presented in the GPFV. You will support the Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire STP areas, working closely with CCG colleagues to deliver the GPFV and will support NHS England South East on  the GPFV Programme areas.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work with two of the 8 national ICSs and be part of a larger transformation programme.  Previous experience of integrated programme delivery, transformational change along with finding solutions and sharing learning is a must.

Ability to travel is essential as the post will be based 1 day per week at NHS England South East (Jubilee House, Oxford) and the rest of the week at CCG bases in Amersham, Aylesbury, and Reading.
