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.

Cancer Alliance - Clinical Group Administrator


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated individual to join the Lancashire & South Cumbria Cancer Alliance team supporting the cancer clinical groups known as NSSGs. The Cancer Alliance is the vehicle for Lancashire & South Cumbria STP to deliver the national cancer strategy, to transform cancer services within the area and optimise delivery of service and patient experience.

We are seeking an administrator who will work as part of the team in providing clerical and secretarial support to the cancer clinical groups who support the cancer alliance delivery plan by providing expert clinical advice. The groups meet three-four times per year  some meetings are outside of core hours:- early morning/late afternoon/early evening. The NSSGs also hold education events which will require some event management skills and attention to detail.

The post holder will have experience of working in the NHS, preferably with cancer services experience and must be able to demonstrate exceptional organisational skills. The meetings take place in a number of venues across Lancashire & South Cumbria so the ability to drive is a requirement.
