Deputy Service Specialist
NHS AfC: Band 8a
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.
At the NHS, we are reminded every day of how important life is. As a flexible working friendly organisation, we want to be sure that you can work in a way that is best for us and for our patients, and for you. Speak to us about how we might be able to accommodate a flexible working arrangement whether that’s job share, part time or another flexible pattern. In addition, although the role advertised may have an ‘home’ office base indicated, we remain committed to supporting flexibility around workplace locations. If it works for the service, we will do our best to make it work for you.
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.
The North East and Yorkshire Commissioning Team are looking to appoint a Deputy Service Specialist within their Yorkshire and the Humber Hub team.
The Deputy Service Specialist will work as part of the Service Specialist and Programme Management Team and will support the commissioning of specialised services by implementing national policies and delivering service reviews and transformation across the patch.
As the NHS develops a place-based approach to commissioning we need to ensure that high quality effective specialised services are available to local populations, evidenced by recognised clinical standards, good outcomes and equality of access. The post holder will help embed these principles within our specialised commissioning role.
Excellent communication with clinical networks and providers will be a pivotal aspect of this role and the post holder will be required to forge effective and productive working relationships with provide trusts, commissioners and public stakeholders.
Finally, the post holder will be required to demonstrate a knowledge of a range of clinical services and the capability of developing expert knowledge in many areas.
The post holder will be based at Oak House in Rotherham there will be regular travel required throughout Yorkshire and the Humber.
