Surrey Heartlands CCG
Surrey Heartlands
£45,753 - £51,668 per annum plus Fringe HCAS

Surrey Heartlands CCG are looking for an experienced Information Governance Lead to support implementation of robust data sharing arrangements that enable the effective and timely delivery of a number of transformational integrated care projects and activities which are being taken forward with partners.

We have an ambitious vision for transformation and continuous improvement of health and care across our footprint. We are in the unique position of having secured a devolution deal, which for the first time really brings together health and social care by allowing us to commission from a single budget. We are also developing four dynamic and sustainable Integrated Care Partnerships (across East Surrey, Guildford and Waverley, North West Surrey and Surrey Downs localities) based on co-operation with our component partners, and focusing on local population needs, priorities and decision making. In addition, we have responsibility, delegated from NHS England, for managing Primary Care contracts across the Surrey Heartlands footprint

The post-holder will provide Information Governance Subject Matter Expert (SME) advice to support the effective delivery of a number of transformational projects and activities being taken forward in the Integrated Care Partnership (ICP) areas and Primary Care Networks. They will work closely with ICP Leads and a range of partner organisations to ensure that new activities are developed in line with a ‘privacy by design and default’ approach and that existing activities are delivered in accordance with agreed local standards and methodologies, which reflect legislative requirements and best practice.

The ideal candidate for this opportunity will be an outcome focussed IG professional who possess a detailed understanding of health & social care systems and demonstrable experience of providing IG SME support which enables organisations to securely and effectively share data for the planning and delivery of high quality integrated care.

We would warmly welcome any questions about this opportunity - please contact Dan Lo Russo, Associate Director of IG for Surrey Heartlands (details on the right), in the first instance.

In cases where we receive a high volume of applications for a post, we may bring the closing date forward. Therefore you are advised to submit your completed application form as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
