National Proactive Care Programme Manager

One year fixed term
We are recruiting a national programme manager to coordinate and drive forward the implementation of its Proactive Care Programme across the country. Working closely with NHSE/I, NHSX and across the Academic Health Science Networks, this is a fantastic opportunity to support the reset of care for people living with long term conditions post COVID-19 pandemic.
Salary: £55-£65k

Closing date:
8 March 2021

COVID-19 has placed unprecedented pressure on our health system. This brings an added risk to people with long term conditions who need ongoing proactive care to stay well & avoid deterioration. Interruptions to routine care may worsen outcomes for patients, increase their COVID risk and result in exacerbations that further increase pressure on the NHS.

As primary care transforms its models of care in response to the pandemic, we have developed real world frameworks to support long term condition management. 

These frameworks along with a comprehensive implementation support package constitute UCLPartners’ Proactive Care Programme.  National interest and demand for the frameworks have resulted in NHSE/I funding to accelerate implementation of the frameworks in four localities in England with a view to national roll-out (TBC) from April 2021.

We are now recruiting a Programme Manager who will be key to supporting and coordinating this national roll-out supporting those Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) implementing the frameworks, local NHS systems, NHSE/I and NHSX.
