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.

If the advertised role is based in London on an Agenda for Change Pay Band, it will attract a High Cost Area supplement. This supplement is not applicable to Executive or Senior Manager or Medical Leader positions. For positions offered on a part time basis, salary and any allowances will be adjusted pro rata.

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

Are you an experienced manager with the ability to work with stakeholders across primary, secondary, community and specialist care and in partnership with local government and key voluntary sector organisations to deliver world class cancer care across the West Midlands?

The Cancer Taskforce Report ‘Achieving World-Class Cancer Outcomes: A Strategy for the NHS 2015 - 2020’ was published in July 2015. The taskforce strategy outlined 96 recommendations, including the establishment of Cancer Alliances.

Cancer Alliances put clinical leaders across primary, secondary and tertiary care in the driving seat for improving cancer patient’s outcomes both in terms of survival and experience of care. This extends from prevention strategies, through screening and early diagnosis, delivery of evidence based treatment, living with and beyond cancer, palliative and supportive care to end of life care.

The West Midlands Cancer Alliance Board provides strategic leadership to ensure successful planning and delivery of Cancer Taskforce priorities across our 6 Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STPs) members. The Cancer Alliance owns the delivery of the cancer-specific elements of the STP and the more detailed Alliance plans.

The Cancer Alliance Team is responsible for delivering the Cancer Alliance Delivery Plan, and the implementation and effective delivery of the nationally funded cancer transformation projects.
