Programme Manager – Once for London

Healthy London Partnership (HLP) is looking for motivated and highly skilled staff to work with London for London across a range of projects to transform health and care.

Working together to make London the healthiest city in the world

HLP brings together the NHS in London and our partners to deliver better health and care for all Londoners.

Our partners include the Mayor of London, Greater London Authority, Public Health England, London Councils and Health Education England. We believe that collectively we can make London the healthiest global city in the world by uniting all of London to deliver the ambitions set out in Better Health for London: Next Steps and the national Five Year Forward View.

We work to deliver the changes best done once for London. We are also in the unique position to support the delivery of the sustainability and transformation partnerships in the five areas across London with strategic advice, resources and staff embedded in the areas.

What we do:

  • Work across London to deliver on national, London and local aspirations aiming to make London the healthiest city in the world.
  • Bring together political drive, academic research and delivery networks to make sure change is taken forward at every level.
  • Attract additional funding to London for transformation work Horizon scan, share lessons learnt and best practice, undertake evaluation, data and policy analysis to make sure London’s health and care system has access to the most up to date research and information
  • Bring together and facilitate London wide networks to build consistent standards of care so all Londoners have access to the best possible health and care services
  • Work on once for London products and support where this is the most efficient and effective model for improving health and care for Londoners

Join Healthy London Partnership and you will have the opportunity to shape a healthier future for our capital and build an exciting career. This role is flexible and you will be allocated to projects that match your skill set providing the opportunity to work across a range of projects in both health and care. We will work with you to ensure that you are supported in developing your career whilst having the opportunity to work on some of the most strategic and transformative programmes in London.

We want to work with London’s best talent. People who act with integrity and want to work in an open, agile and collaborative way. People who are smart and ambitious, innovators with enquiring minds who are not afraid to question the ‘norms’ in health and care.  People with a range of skills and from a range of backgrounds who have never tired of trying to change health and care services from the inside out and from the outside in.                          

We are looking to recruit a motivated and highly skilled member of staff to join the Urgent and Emergency Care team as a Once for London Programme Manager.   This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a growing team which will be central to the overall Urgent and Emergency Care Improvement programme to drive improvements in urgent and emergency care for Londoners. The aim of this programme is to help people to stay out of hospital (whether acute or mental health) even when they have unplanned health or care needs, and to ensure that they can go home, or to wherever they are best supported, as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Working with all services in the urgent and emergency care pathway, including local hospital trusts, local government, community providers, nursing homes and others you will promote best practice on a pan-London basis, with a focus on reducing length of stay and other relevant national and regional targets. You will already have experience of working on complex programmes of change, including working in either health, social care or with community providers.  You will have worked in roles which implement improvement methodologies and have a track record of delivery to achieve the required change.  In a senior role, you will work collaboratively within Healthy London Partnership to identify interdependencies across the portfolio of programmes and engage extensively with external key stakeholders including senior clinicians, senior managers in CCGs, senior leaders in Local Authorities, STPs, NHS England (London), NHS Improvement (London) and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (London). A strong track record in helping trusts to improve their performance as well as experience of working with and influencing at both the strategic and operational level in the health and care environment is required.

The post holder will be based at both Ferguson House and Skipton House in London and will be expected to travel across London for various meetings and project activities.

Interview will be held week commencing 29th October 2018.
