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.

Primary care is a strategic priority for the NHS Leadership Academy and this role is one of a number of similar posts based in each of the regional Leadership Academy teams.

The Academy aims to provide a clear, consistent and coherent leadership development offer for primary care with a focus (although not exclusively so) on the providers of healthcare. In doing so, the Academy seeks to support the immediate needs of today i.e. the leadership and management of a changing landscape of practices and community-providers, while focusing on tomorrow, enabling a shift from reactive approaches to illness by individual practitioners and organisations, to the building of healthy communities led by systems of health and social care.

As a Programme Manager for primary care leadership development the post holder will work as part of a dynamic team in delivering an effective service supporting managers and staff across the South West region. The Programme Manager for primary care leadership development has responsibility for the management and delivery of a portfolio of work for the Leadership Academy in the South West region as set out in the primary care workstream of the national NHS Leadership Academy business plan. This includes the following elements:

  • Network support and development
  • Team development
  • Individual leadership development
  • Patient and citizen leadership
  • Coaching and mentoring
  • Consultancy and bespoke solutions
  • Graduate management scheme
  • Talent management

In common with all Academy programmes and interventions, our strategic priorities for development are inclusive and compassionate leadership, systems working and improvement skills.

The post is responsible for providing professional expertise to the outcome of the business processes for the regional and national teams of the NHS Leadership Academy, and the NHS People Directorate more widely.

The post holder will define current processes, facilitate discussions and advise colleagues as to how best practice might be adopted in the definition of future processes, document those processes as they are agreed and oversee their delivery.

Please note that the reason for the fixed term  contract is due to  short-term vacancy request
