NHS England leads the NHS in England, setting the priorities and direction of the NHS and informing the national debate to improve health and care.

We want everyone to have greater control of their health and 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 their spending. Our work involves the commissioning of health care services in England, commissioning 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). We have devised and are delivering a strategic vision for the NHS, along with our partners in health, called the Five Year Forward View. 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.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Quality Improvement Team within the Northwest Coast Strategic Clinical Network (NWC SCN).  We are looking for an enthusiastic, high achieving and experienced Data Officer to support a dynamic and forward thinking team.

The ideal candidate will be a team player with excellent organisational and keyboard skills and possess a good working knowledge of Microsoft Office packages. (Excel Word, PowerPoint and Visio).

The post holder will work on supporting improvement and quality assurance projects/ programmes and will be part of a dynamic strategic clinical network data support service.  The role will require day-to-day responsibility for providing data management, administrative support, as needed for all clinical networks of the NWC SCN.
