Project management support x 5

We are working with NHS London to establish a Critical Care Transformation Learning Collaborative that will facilitate an increase in critical care capacity across the 39 London intensive treatment units. We are seeking NHS colleagues to fill five project management support posts that will form part of a wider virtual team.
Salary: NHS Band 7 equivalent

Closing date:
1 August 2020


NHS staff and the care they have provided for patients during a national emergency has demonstrated local and national capabilities of the highest calibre.  From care homes to all 39 critical care units in London, staff and teams collaborated and innovated to improve care for patients.

In the next phase of this national emergency, London has outlined a recovery plan to

  • focus on activity where we can harness unique capacity and capability to achieve swift high-impact improvement for London.
  • Achieve value for patients and the public, and address inequities and inequalities that would otherwise undermine health.
  • Engage with ICS leaders, the CEO community and social partners, led by a diverse group of leaders committed to achieve inclusive change.

Transformation Learning Collaborative  (TLC)

To support the workforce and patients across London, NHS providers have committed to increase critical care capacity across the 39 regional ITUs to support the London population going forward.

To achieve this, London CEOs have asked for a harmonised approach utilising all available sources of data, i.e clinical activity and outcomes, training delivery capacity and unmet demand, to ensure there is consistency around training that adapts to what has been learnt across the system around COVID-19 patients and new ways of working.

In the short term, the formation of a collaborative will support a possible surge involving multi-professional teams, new skill mixes and augmented models of care to respond patient and system need.


The immediate next step towards mobilisation of this programme is to create a team (virtual), bringing expertise from across the NHS in London’s clinical, education and training networks to support the region.

Colleagues from across the NHS in London who may be interested in supporting this initiative are asked to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) ensuring that:

  • Individuals are supported by their manager to submit an expression of interest
  • They can be released up to 9 months to support this work
  • They can join the programme immediately
  • Their organisation is covered under the NHS MOU

5 x Project Management Support Office roles are available. FTE 5.

  4. An outline of key contributions that they can make to this programme of work, with a focus on multi-professional educational expertise, and ensuring that Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is at the centre of such initiatives

Colleagues should specify their availability to be released promptly from their current portfolio to support this work according to the FTE specified above.
