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 strongly believe in health and high quality care for all, now and for future generations and 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, and we support local health services that are led by 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.

The national cancer strategy; Achieving World Class Cancer Outcomes: A strategy for England 2015 – 2020 set an exciting vision for the transformation of cancer services to radically improve cancer outcomes and to ensure that patients can benefit from high quality modern services.

Central to delivering this agenda are sixteen newly formed Cancer Alliances, which have been established on regional footprints as a crucial step in implementing the strategy, meeting challenges set out in the Five Year Forward View and the local sustainability and transformation plans (STP).

As the Wessex Early Detection Transformation Lead (EDT), the post holder will work as part of a dynamic team in delivering an effective support service across the Wessex Cancer Alliance.

The role supports the Alliance in driving transformation as well as value for money in planning, commissioning and service delivery.

The Early Detection Transformation programme is part of a national drive to improve service delivery in support of early detection of cancer. Wessex successfully bid for funding to support plans to further develop and implement this across Wessex.
